This site incorporates the songs of the duo David Will Mitchell and Cole Toury. All the songs are written by us, and performed by ourselves, together or individually, and by close friends. So, take your time, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy and send us a message.
I am a songwriter who started later in life. I sang in church when I was a child, and I've always been involved in choirs, when the chances came along. Lots of writers become prolific when they go through emotional times. Issues are triggers, everyone has their own.
I write songs for, and also work with, other artists, individually and in workshops. My goal is to help anyone of any age who is keen to express themselves in an exciting, fulfilling and very creative way. It can be easier than you think.
I always write my songs to tell a story, and to mean something. I am passionate about the process of writing lyrics. I am part of a duo partnership with a wonderful multi-instrumentalist and arranger - Cole Toury, who plays both guitar and keys equally well. Together we have released 6 EP’s and 6 full length albums; one every year between 2013 and 2020, Our music can be found on all the main online platforms and stores, released in the name of 'David will Mitchell and Cole Toury' Also we upload some songs on www.reverbnation.com/davidwillmitchell and www.reverbnation.com/coletouryproject Check it out.
I find inspiration in all areas of life, through my personal beliefs, and through the big issues of life. It is increasingly difficult not to be moved by what we see around us. My writing style is similar to Dylan and Cohen. It is ‘issue’ and ‘philosophy’ driven, and album titles like these give it away to some extent:
1. Meaning of love
2. Lonely when I'm with you
3. The Beaten Track
4. We get what we Deserve
