That was the first line. I tried to do it, I tried to do the obligatory self-important third-person bio, adopting that journalistic tone, pretending it’s someone else writing about me. I was going to impress you with all my qualifications and achievements. Maybe I still can. But it might sound boastful in the first person. Try to ignore it. I’m just stating facts.

I am a songwriter, performer, arranger, producer and multi-instrumentalist. I have a diverse skill-set across multiple media, from audio production to graphic design to writing to video production, motion graphics and animation. Film festivals have shown my work. TV shows and films have used my music. But I’m most well-known for my humility. I have letters after my name and I sometimes use my middle initial.

I play synth in a band called Any Joy and I play guitar in a band called Pinhole. I release my own music under the name The David Nelligan Thing.
