David A. Tobin Artist

DAVID-A-TOBIN-back-to-love-weekender
SINGER & SONGWRITER/ AWARD WINNING DIRECTOR/ PLAYWRIGHT/ CREATIVE VISIONARY.
David has been singing since the age of 6. The house he grew up in was filled with music. His mother listened and sang old gospel hymns or maybe a Nat King Cole record. His older brother Charles played Sly and the Family Stone, War and Stevie Wonder while his magical musical sister Cat (Cathy) played Earth, Wind and Fire, The Ohio Players, Carole King, The Emotions, Ashford & Simpson, Phoebe Snow and so many more. Even his father played Lou Rawls and old Muddy Waters Records. Music was everywhere and David took all of these into his heart, mind and soul.
While other kids were playing outside David was listening to the radio and watching his favorite artist on TV living out all he wanted to do… perform in front of a live audience.
The early years in school were spent in every place there was music. The choir, gospel choir and special vocal groups (David was the president) is where David got the foundation for his life as a vocal musician. While still in his early years in school David made his way to join the Trenton Artist Showcase Theater Company and The Trenton Civic Opera Company. La Boheme, Rigoletto, Trial by Jury, The Magic Flute, The Mikado, Showboat, The King and I and The Adventures of A Country Mouse (David was the villain, Hugo the Rat) all allowed David to grow as an artist quickly.
Just out of High School David won his first recording contract in a city wide talent show. Though he won he never recorded a single note. Disappointed, David hosted a weekly talent show where A&R director Nelson Roman came to see him perform. Within the next few weeks David was in the studio. Writing came naturally for him. One week after recording a new song Plaything, David was on his way to New York and on the radio came his voice. The next week he was signed to Big Beat/Atlantic Records. Recording singles for the next two years. This was a good move for David but it still was not what he longed for. He wanted to be back on the stage.
David and the late pope John Paul II had no less than 4 times to meet. This is how it happened.
The chance came when he auditioned and got a spot to tour with the world´s biggest gospel touring show The Harlem Gospel Singers. The first 2 years David was a singer in the show. The 3rd year is the year that David stepped into the front as the Choir Director and Vocal Arranger. 3 Cd’s later , one television special (David was the Musical Director) a host of wonderful first, like performing for the late John Paul II 4 times or being the first Gospel Group to close the Montreal Jazz Festival. Performing at Ford’s Theater for a month run and going back to perform for President Clinton or even sealing over a million copies of CDs that David produced have all been great achievements in his career, something was still missing. The music he had been doing was not really the way David wanted to produce a show or music, it was time for him to move on.
David had now moved on to Bottom Line records where he recorded many singles and recently released the dance CD Who Do You Love (available via iTunes). Back in New York and no longer on the road David went back to his first love on the stage. Directing a one woman show Chewing the Fat gave him a taste for directing and gave him a new gold. This time it would be on his terms. His first show he wrote landed at the legendary John Houseman Theater in New York off Broadway.
Scene from A Pure Gospel Christmas at the Ensemble Theater Houston
Not only did he write the show but co directed it, musically directed it and starred in it. A Pure Gospel Christmas won rave reviews from the New York Times and sold out houses loved the music… Tobinized! David followed up with two more off Broadway shows. A Pure Gospel Valentine and A Pure Gospel America all receiving great reviews. A Pure Gospel America has been renamed America’s Song Book.
A Pure Gospel Christmas was also performed at the largest Black Theater Company in America. The Ensemble Theater in Houston Texas. David flew down to Direct both these shows. He also won the Musical Director of the Year. Not only did it break box office records but they asked David back next year with a new show, A Pure Gospel Christmas II, Coming Home, another box office and creative success!
Shortly after this David packed his bags and moved to Germany. The chance to be back on stage and do some of his favorite soul music classics was more than David could turn down. The group Ministry of Song 1st tour set them apart from all other groups in Europe. It was soul music from the heart and soul. Still  in Germany with a new lot of musical shows. David A. Tobin’s Gospel Singers toured for the first time in 2007 and was back in 2008  for a short tour. David A. Tobin’s Soul Singers had great success with A Tribute to James Brown. David A. Tobin and Friends is a new work for 2008 and now for a few years David has emerged as one of the directors to watch.    Mr. Tobin has
kept busy as lead singer with “Realtime” a funk soul band, “Soultyer”, a Jazzy soul pop band and  “Soulvillage” a band that keeps David’s arranging skills sharp.  All work in and around Europe.    David has also been a member of the world famous “Les Humphries Singers Reunion” in Germany.  TV and concert work with all these shows and bands has kept David busy!    David has been directing  in Holland “The Soul of Motown III, and The Soul of Motown VI.  With each one more successful than the last one.  David also costumed both shows and on The Soul of Motown VI he did most of the vocal arrangements.  He also Directed & Choreographed  a new version of “The Songs of Sister Act” that toured in the UK and in Holland.
David and  Clemens Rumpf put out in 2011 one of the most talked about dance CD in recent years.
“Ain’t Nothing But House music was a commercial and musical wonder and has just been re-released on Deep Village Digital Records (2012), This cd has been signed over 50 times to other compilation CD´s.
David had his first number one internet single with a song that was recorded 20 years ago!
Bottom Lines Records out of Florida in the USA, re-released the song “LOVE YOU DOWN”,at the same time David also had his first single release with SedSoul, “Trying” that was a top 5 hit. This gave 2 top 10 songs to David on 2 different labels at the same time.  David also has 2 songs on the unreleased new Cool Million project with iconic producer Rob Hardt. The first is set for fall of 2018, “SAVE YOU LOVE FOR ME” !  The full project is in the works for early spring 2019!
Soultyzer then went into the studio to produce a 4 song ep “THIS HOW WE DO IT” (2016).  A mix of soul and funk.  David wrote all the songs and sang all the lead & backing vocals.  As a writer David writes for many people and loves working as a songwriter because it keeps his skills sharp for stage and performing
More recently in 2018 David penned his first top 3 Song for  International Recording Group Cool Million!  “SAVE YOUR LOVE”      Is a soul radio standard that David also sang lead vocals on.  Next David wrote 3 songs for the Cool Million #1Album “STRONGER” that David also wrote.  This project was also awarded  The Association of German Record Critics Award for Best New Release 2019!   2020 Holds several new recordings to be released.
