David C Clements has been grabbing the attention of music lovers through his exceptional live performances for quite some time. His is an epic and ethereal alternative folk with swelling melodies and vocals, touched with the ache of experience retelling tales that feel both insightful and familiar.
Clements was already a well-respected musician having cut his teeth performing with former band SixStarHotel, yet it is his solo material that demands most attention, resulting in performances with Ed Sheeran and Passenger as well as collaborations with Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol).
David has been recording tracks with Jacknife Lee in Los Angeles; Jacknife has recently produced records for Snow Patrol, The Killers, Neil Diamond and U2.
Most recently David performed at the Ward Park Free event as part of the build-up to Snow Patrol’s Ward Park 3 weekend. He also took to the acclaimed Other Voices stage in Belfast this summer.
Clements released his debut album ‘The Longest Day In History’ in 2016 to critical acclaim.
