Now an accomplished poetic and life observing singer songwriter it’s hard to think that David Edward Booth was originally inspired by the Seattle Grunge scene of the early 1990s, particularly how many of the singers and lyricists of those bands would tackle often dark and personal subject matter, whilst giving the songs a broad appeal. So, David started writing songs, and never really stopped. From recording his debut solo album in 1999, through numerous releases (both in bands and solo) David has always been, and continues to be, a talented songwriter at heart and a talented musician and his influences, which include Neil Finn and Crowded House really come to the fore on this project.
Although better known now for his work as an in-demand producer, session musician and co-writer, David found time to produce three EPs of his own songs between 2011 and 2015. They were, “Find Our Way Back Home” (2011), “The Sea EP” (2014) and “The Good Years” (2015). “XI:XV” is a compilation of these three EP releases, brought together and newly remastered to form a stunning album length project.
