KDMusic is a collaboration between singer~songwriter Dave Whitcroft and his musician friends from Christian events in N.Ireland. Between them they've served in the UK, Europe, North America, Southern Africa & SE Asia.
Dave is a songwriter & guitarist from the sunny side of the Mourne Mountains, Co.Down. Growing up, he absorbed folk sessions in the west of Ireland, played in bands & in his church. His musical journey is inseparable from the Christian faith that pursued & captivated him since his teens.
" Like many of you, I understand how music & worship are a lifeline in hard times. My parents were both brain injury patients & I was responsible for their care for about 30yrs. So I have a real soft spot for kids who have to grow up too quickly and become carers for their parents. My first job was as an 'Interface' youth worker in North Belfast during 'The Troubles'. So, I love writing songs about the God who shares our tears as well as our joy. The secret you discover, is that with God as our Father, even when it's really tough, joy becomes the new 'backdrop' for life's adventures. "
Since then, he has looked after children's, youth, & finally worship ministries in his local church in Belfast. He is happily married, with 3 children, and really values celebration & fun music alongside the more serious material he writes. The songs highlighted on this website have been written in and for an ordinary local church.
"Whatever we're going through, there's a song for that moment ~ and nothing beats singing it as one, big, shared voice".
