A few of the clients David's
'The award for the most powerful and controlled voice of the night must go to David Gould. His opera trained bass - baritone comes from his boots and sounds as though it could fill the auditorium (Perth Entertainment Centre) without microphone assistance.'
Perth X Press
With his matinee idol looks and suave, well schooled bass baritone, David Gould can't help but dominate the proceedings. Hearing him in this, or any other show, must be what it felt like hearing the luxurious voiced opera singer Ezio Pinza in the original Broadway run of South Pacific.And like Pinza, Gould should be singing Mephistopheles in Faust not Mr. Mistoffolees in Cats, and in the worlds great opera houses at that. But opera's loss is music theatre's gain and voices like his are rare in any field.
