I used to sing as a Boy-soprano in our local Church choir and still have a fairly good Tenor voice. My main instrument is Trumpet and I play at expert level. Also, I can play virtually all the instruments associated with UK Style Brass Bands except Trombone but including drums and tuned Percussion. I have over 50 years experience as a musician, have membership of PRS and over the last 10 years or so have been involved in producing Electronic Dance music including Trance, Hip-hop, Dubstep, Bhangra etc. A track called 'Wonderland' was including on a C.D. that was given away with the UK National newspaper The Daily Star a few years ago, a 2nd track was earmarked for Volume 6 but the series was 'pulled' by the editor before release! During this period I have also been creating electronic film music for T.V. and films. A Bhangra track of mine has just been placed into an Independent Rumanian film called 'Fixer' which will be released shortly. Many of my tracks are licensed in America by various music Supervisors and I have two tracks on an online Dubstep Production called 'For The Love Of Dub'. A un-named Horror movie licensed a track called 'Something Is Down There' but the film is currently on hold so not sure when this is going to be completed. As the title suggests it is very disturbing and gives the impression of a prescence down in the basement or behind a door etc. Please visit my Website / Soundcloud to hear samples of my music http://davidfretwell.wix.com/d-f-publishing - https://soundcloud.com/dave-fretwell.
