David White (AKA Dai Sharkey) describes himself as a singer/songwriter who suffers with schizophrenia.
His writing is very much informed by his experiences as a disabled person and one of his aims is to raise awareness of mental health issues through his work. Creative Steps will enable him to benefit from an outside eye to help him curate his material and develop it further.
He will use his Creative Steps Stage 1 award to work with local music producer, Richard Thair, who will produce a 10 track album and work with Dai, providing mentoring in relation to both the production of his music and the business side of his work.
Amy Wadge will also provide six mentoring sessions in relation to his song writing.
