David Grubb is a composer with compositions uploaded to MusicHub. Read below to find out more about them.
David is a fiddle player and composer, working as a freelance musician in a variety of genres across the arts. Originally from Fife, David studied at the Junior Royal Conservatoire of Scotland followed by a Bachelors in Music Degree at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. His work has seen him tour the UK and New Zealand, and appear on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio Wales, Folk Radio UK, and Radio NZ. Within the last year he has been selected for the Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections and the Bath Folk Festival: New Shoots Competition.
“Emotionally charged and touching… Highly melodious, appealingly catchy, even hypnotic at times” (The Living Tradition). David’s unique brand of composition amalgamates folk, jazz, blues and classical, all underpinned by his Scottish traditional roots. From a riot of galloping beats and strings, to melancholic, reflective and haunting melodies the next, the music weaves and wanders a remarkable journey through imagined soundscapes. David’s critically acclaimed debut title ‘High Rise’ – released in 2014 – was described as “an album of wondrous beauty” (Folk Radio UK) and “every bit as engaging and enjoyable as the acknowledged master” (fRoots).
David is currently collaborating with The Jones Collective and Motherlode theatre companies as devisor, composer and performer on their future projects.
