Singer/songwriter David Curtis stands out as being the youngest hit maker that New Zealand has produced. He came to the attention of HMV record producer Alan Galbraith as a 13-year-old schoolboy in Wellington. A few weeks after meeting Alan, David recorded ‘Wheel of Fortune’ in October 1970. The result was an instant smash hit and gold record. The single reached number 5 on the National Charts. David recorded two albums on the HMV label and in 1971 he composed ‘Take Your Leave’ that went to number 3 on the national charts.
During the 1980’s David toured as the support act for The Hollies, Leo Sayer, The Irish Rovers, Richard Clayderman and The Troggs.
In 1985 David left New Zealand for England and remained there until 1993 entertaining in various clubs in London and spent 6 months touring England in ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat’.
A decision was made to return to New Zealand in 1994 where David, now a committed Christian, lives with his family. David has built a home recording studio where he reflects his love of gospel, country/folk music with the songs he is writing and singing. The 2021 release of his song ‘After All These Years’ spent 5 weeks in the UK country ‘Hotdisc’ top 40.
