David Shurr has received airplay on Dermot O'leary's Radio 2 spot, rave reviews with Tom Robinson's "FreshOnTheNet" project, countless BBC Introducing spotlights and has even met personallly with jazz pianist Jamie Cullum for his "Big Audition" Masterclass in London where Cullum said, "Musically, songwriting-wise, and how you are on stage: it's all there!"
Listen closely as British-born David Shurr draws from his American familial roots and multicultural upbringing (raised in South East Asia) to form his own alt-pop niche of poetic lyricism, jangling guitars, psyche-swirling melodies and tea towel drumbeats.
Determined to rival the popular one-man productions of Andy Shauf, Tame Impala, & Kurt Vile, David Shurr has a keen ear that combines ethnic musics with sounds reminiscent of the most beloved British songsmiths. All of his work is written, performed, recorded & produced independently.
