Well for every story there must be a beginning except in David J. Roch’s case the beginning took shape and was formed from the end of another story. Dealing with subject matters ranging from loss, love, religion, death and relationships he holds more in common with poets from a bygone era than that of today’s singer-songwriters.

Upon first listen this can prove to be quite a dark moody beguiling affair it comes then as no surprise then that David works as an undertaker and deals with both death and loss on a daily basis. .

The task of controlling and channelling these tunes, ideas and music was given to Grinderman & Bad Seeds drummer, Jim Sclavunos, a gentleman who himself is not afraid to push limits and boundaries. Working with David he helped to forge a sound which firmly placed his vocal at the forefront, utilizing David’s ethereal falsetto whilst also letting it grapple with deep baritone undercurrents. Whether playing solo or with his full band David’s vocal will swoop, soar and intertwine itself around everything in it’s path.

The album entitled 'Skin & Bones' was met with very positive reviews and 2012 saw David's music featured on numerous American TV shows, increasing his fan base both at home and in the U.S.

David has since been working on his follow up album which is expected later in 2013.
