Many of us think of FR David as the singer of WORDS one of the biggest hits in the last 10 years which sold 8 million records across the world. Some of us don’t know the rest of the career of this French singer songwriter musician who started in the 70 ‘s playing guitar for Vangelis in concerts and on the records.
He then became the lead singer in the group “Variation” which is one of the rare French groups to be exported around the world in the history of Rock. This is the era of the giant stages and stadiums where he performed side by side with all the legends of Rock & Roll. Then the group separates and F.R David stays in the USA for 5 years where he works on albums with The Dooby Brothers, The OJ’S, Richie Evans, Toto and many others. He also records his album “King of Hearts”, produced by David Kreps. He returns to France to find that WORDS has become number 1 on the charts in 10 countries in Europe and Japan.
This is the beginning of 15 months of promotion and travelling around and it starts over again. 1986 F.R Davids signs with CBS and records SAHARA NIGHT, a fusion of all music that has influenced this unusual singer songwriter. 1987 He records a new album “Reflections” which plays over the radio in all of Europe and Asia.
