David Tughan
David Tughan is a unique and highly respected Jazz Vocalist - described recently by the UK's Guardian newspaper as "The epitome of cool".

David has enjoyed entertaining audiences worldwide from New York to London and from Kuala Lumpur to Qatar. His straight ahead singing style has been compared in national press to classic Jazz icons such as Chet Baker, Frank Sinatra and Mel Tormé, but his approach, while having one foot firmly in the traditions of the classic Jazz singer, is constantly finding ways of exploring the classic songs and making them fresh, innovative and fun.

His unique approach to the voice and innovative use of loops, vocal harmony & beat boxing, story telling and comedy, integrates into his live performances with his trio, making his act unique amongst his contemporaries.

From large venues like Dublin's RTE National Concert hall to the intimacy of the world famous Ronnie Scott's Jazz club in London, David playfully connects with his audiences delighting them with a spontaneous and innovative approach to Classic Jazz standards that always surprises the listener.

David has been singing Jazz professionally for over 20 years. Since training at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, he continues to sing with some of the stars of the Jazz world today at some of the most exclusive venues, Jazz clubs and festivals worldwide.
