David Sneddon is a London based Glaswegian singer/songwriter who had a no1 hit in the UK in January 2003 with ‘Stop Living The Lie’ after he entered and won the BBC’s reality TV show Fame Academy in 2002. He went on to have a further 2 top twenty hits and a no5 album entitled ‘Seven Years - Ten Weeks’.

Having tasted fame and fortune and life as a celebrity, in October 2003 David made the shock announcement that he wanted to quit his career as a pop artist in order to concentrate full time on his songwriting. However, just six months later he made a low-key comeback as the lead-singer of indie-pop/rock band The Sham. Although they were together for less than a year the band achieved some success, releasing a single, ‘Goodbye Baby’ in October 2004 which, albeit briefly, topped the 7digital download chart ahead of U2 and Keane, and they appeared as one of the headline acts at the 2004/5 Hogmanay celebrations in Aberdeen, playing to a crowd of 40,000 along with Deacon Blue and Hugh and Cry.

Although never officially announcing a split, in the spring of 2005, the individual members of The Sham went their separate ways, pursuing individual projects and David returned to his ‘day job’, working full-time as a songwriter for other artists. To date, his most notable collaborations include: co-writer on international hit ‘The Message’ for critically acclaimed UK soul singer Nate James, and more recently with Julian Perretta who’s debut single is due for release in August 2009.

David still performs as a solo artist occasionally, mainly at venues in the London area and is a regular at the Bedford, Regal Room and Troubadour.
