David Cosma



David Cosma returns to one of his favourite haunts, with two sets on Thursday May 30th at The Edinburgh Castle! Inpress Magazine described Cosma as "a thinking person’s songwriter that speaks volumes to what a terrific talent we have in our midst”, while The Age wrote "his full-bodied croon pairs the silken wryness of Elvis Costello and the gravel of Bob Dylan”. Inspiring lyrics accompanied by sumptuous melodies and harmonies, together with his unique method of playing the guitar, guarantees an impassioned live performance. Sonically, his music is rich and luminous and boasts a world class production quality that is often overlooked in the world of independent artists. But it's lyrically where Cosma stands apart, with a knack for examining commonplace and even trite circumstance and then magnifies their significance with a clever and at times ironic tone. Having just released his latest album, The Death of Discovery, this promises to be a brilliant night. Catch him from 8.30pm on May 30th as he performs one set as a duo with Nick Carrafa followed by a set with full band including Trent McKenzie on bass and Adrian Whyte on guitar.
