DAVID RIBI - SINGER/ACTOR/MUSICIAN. I am 26 years of age, trained in Musical Theatre and Straight Acting. I am also a professional singer/songwriter and session singer with a particular interest in Soul and Pop Music. I am particularly interested in TV and Film as I have an extensive Live Theatre CV already, although I would also be willing to consider other areas if appropriate! I have a youthful appearance (playing ages of 16-26) with a slim athletic physique, blonde hair and blue eyes. Full of character and keen to work hard!

POPULAR MUSIC EXPERIENCE

I am currently working as a freelance Singer/Songwriter on the London Circuit.
My music would be classified as Soul/Pop and is mostly composed on Piano and then arranged for a full Funk/Soul Band set-up.

Vocal Range:
Baritone / Tenor - Low G to High C

Singing Styles:
Pop / Soul / Rock / Jazz. (Can read music and pick up harmonies very easily)


I am also a professional freelance Band Singer and work with such Live Bands as:

Only One Direction - The UK's number 1 One Direction Tribute band (Musical Director and Niall Horan)

Olly M - Olly Murs tribute - Gigs all over the UK.

Black Velvet - Pop and Rock Classics (Surrey Based)

The True Mentals - Soul and Jazz Classics, working along side
such singers as T-Green and Rietta Austin

The Somebodys - Professional Pop Party Band, established as Ear Candy. (London Based)


I also have plenty of experience in Session Singing, working with such producers as renowned songwriter Keith Beauvais on his most recent demo's, as well as recording demos for major record companies.

I consider myself to have a great stage presence and a passion for music that really comes across in my performance.
My strengths are in Soul and Pop singing, although i would be happy to take on any projects that are thrown at me.
