    David Mensah is not limited by categorization when it comes to music, and he likes to leave it open for the listeners to put their own description on what he does. He has been called the UK version of Avant while others draw comparisons to John Legend.

    Then again, some people have even mentioned Luther Vandros in their description of the music that he makes.

    “I never really go in to the studio with a set brief, I prefer to keep an open mind and let the song happen organically. However to someone who has never heard my music I would say that it is soulful R&B with elements of Jazz”, he says.

    Born to a Ghanaian father and a British mother, David draws from an eclectic mix of influences from all over the world when it comes to his music. He continues to be on the rise after his song ‘Food of Love’ was released through Universal Music in 2008.

    ‘My Day’, the first single from his album went straight to number 1 on an independent UK music chart from Textatrack.

    The song attracted great interest from some of the UK’s leading Dj’s, climbing to the number 10 spot on the Solar Radio Sweet Rhythm Chart and number 11 on the Starpoint Radio Official UK Soul Chart. His debut album “Music is the Food of Love” was released on VME records with most of the productions is from Wayne Brown,  as well as Ghanaian-born, US Billboard chart topping producer, Coptic.
