Where to begin with David Paton? A prolific singer, composer, producer, solo recording artist, sideman, collaborator, multi-instrumentalist – David is “known” to the masses by way of the international hit “Magic” with his band Pilot, and for his ten year tenure as a founding member of The Alan Parsons Project.
A master tunesmith with a melodic / pocket approach to the instrument, Paton’s five decade and counting career spans pop to prog and permutations thereof. David has used a variety of instruments over the years, including the pictured Fender Precision bass along with Rickenbacker, and MusicMan extended range, just to site a few.

Among David’s stage and record credits include Kate Bush, Camel, Chris DeBurgh, Chris Rea, Jimmy Page, Elton John, Rick Wakeman (as a classical guitarist), Richard Thompson, The Pretenders (“I’ll Stand By You”) and Fish, just to cite a very, very, very select few.
