David Dower

Selections from "The Frog, The Fish & The Whale"

David Dower & Matt Fisher's vivacious piano/percussion duo are making a splash on the London music scene after the critically acclaimed release of their debut CD "The Frog, The Fish & The Whale" - Julian Joseph (BBC Radio 3) described the album as "tasteful, textured and considered". Their music is fun, quirky, and accessible. In many ways the music is difficult to categorise into a genre. David's compositions take influence from jazz, classical, pop, world music and non-musical influences of life experience (and a fascination with the inside workings, timing and cadence of comedians). Resultantly, there are no genre-based rules; the music is simply an honest expression of David's writing style. Joy emanates from Dower's charismatic piano playing, supported by Fisher's assortment of percussion sounds - a wide variety of drums, cymbals, small shakers, bongos, and featuring his proficient ability on the Indian Tabla drums (and the bucket of water - you have to see it to believe it!). This is happy music; original songs you feel like you recognize. Check out the album online on Spotify, or David's website at daviddowermusic.com. We hope you enjoy the concert! David & Matt
