David J. Roch, formerly Little Lost David, is taking to the road with his unique brand of highly emotive and singularly gorgeous music.

His songs convey a type of drama that doesn’t always translate into good pop music; but in David’s case, the highs and lows come across as honest and sincere and make for an exciting new take on the torch song.

David name-checks jazz chanteuses Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday as personal inspirations, not to mention poets Simon Armitage and William Blake, and numbers Glasgow-based artist David Shrigley in his potent index of influences.

After a year of low-key gigs and an appearance in a Ch4 special, David has begun to attract attention from some very well connected individuals. His album is produced by Grinderman and Bad Seed James Sclavunos and September sees him on tour with I Am Arrows.

Tour dates read as follows:

Monday 13th September Nottingham, Bodega
Tuesday 14th September Southampton, Joiners
Thursday 16th September Cardiff, Barfly
Friday 17th September Wimbledon, New Slang at Watershed
Sunday 19th September Glasgow, King Tuts
Monday 20 September Leeds, Cockpit
Tuesday 21st September Oxford, Jericho
Thursday 23rd September London, 100 Club
