BBC and UK slam poetry champion performs poems and songs from The River Was a God (published this year by Stairwell Books), a collection of three poetry shows performed at the Fringe: Science, Love and Revolution; Building God; and The Other Side of the Flood. 'David’s work is a lion’s roar folded neatly into a snake bite and mailed to the Aristocracy of the world' (Tshaka Campbell). 'A generation of poets learnt the trade through this trilogy' (Lisa Luxx). 'Read it, share it, nail it to the door of your church' (Bram E. Gibbon).
