The new album by David Place released in 2020 called “PANDORA’S BOX”
is a wonderful contail of genres mainly based on folk and blues with that
little touch for pop and raggae.
It is a great easy listening album, starting from the opening track “American Boy”
a pleasant soft start to the album.
There is no doubt about it Pandora’s Box is a beautifully composed album,
written during the recent lock-down. The one thing that this Covid has given us,
great new music from magnificent musicians like David Place.

compositions. It was there in London, where he began his artistic career on the
streets and in the clubs, getting to know different sounds and genres that

pop, reggae and retro sounds.In 2009 he made his debut with his first album “Perfect Silence ";

his first Made in Italy record product and third of his career.In 2020, the lockdown led David to find time to be dedicate entirely to his music:
