David has collaborated on an Album by Japanese band Beaglehat! Both share the love of really catchy melodies, intricate harmonies, and great musicianship so a partnership was easy. David was invited by writer Hisa to guest as a co-writer and lead vocalist for this cult band. Following the success in Japan of his earlier released music. Blue Yonder and The Search, he didn't have to think twice about accepting their invitation after hearing some of the songs they had already written. Japan... has been a country that has followed and always supported Davids' musical career since the Pilot days and the emergence of British Pop Rock. On this album you will hear songs which have influences throughout many different years and areas of music. The end result being a really feel good bunch of high class well performed and produced pop songs including Davids' own 'Goldmine' and 'On my way'.

On first hearing Beaglehat songs I immediately heard the 70's influence. The style of writing and playing is very similar to Pilot, so much so that it is difficult to tell which songs have been written be me and which songs are written by members of Beaglehat. I have really enjoyed this collaboration and was happy to contribute 2 songs of my own. The band are all very talented players and the song writing is excellent. They have managed to recapture the magic and spark of an era full of imagination catchy melodies, intricate harmonies, great musicianship and ground breaking ideas. Marquee's plan was to release a compilation album taken from Beaglehat's first 2 albums with 2 songs sung in English by a major British singer. They asked me (one of the band's favourite vocalists) to sing on the album. I agreed and began recording the vocals for 2 tracks. The collaboration went so well and seemed so natural that they expanded the project to have me record lead vocals for the entire album.
