Newcastle based Singer/songwriter.
JD didn't know he was destined to become a musician but one day, as he was innocently walking down the street, the clouds parted, the sun shone brightly through the clouds and a heavenly hand came from the sky. It pointed directly at him but then, all of a sudden, the divine finger went slightly limp as JD heard the awesome proclamation "Wait, you're not Joe McElderry!" and the heavenly hand drifted off to the other side of the river. JD would write a song about this occasion but he scrapped it because it was dross. A few years later, JD supported Joe McElderry at a charity event.
