Motherland ▷ David Blank

by Johanne Affricot - Published on 08/06/2017

In the first episode of Motherland ▷ we meet David Blank, Italian Nigerian singer-songwriter.

Born and raised in Italy, David moved to London at the age of 16. For the past three years, he performed in some of the most important runway shows of Italian and international emerging designers. He was also selected for X Factor Italia’s bootcamp.
His powerful and deep voice made him gain the attention of internationally renowned Italian singer Laura Pausini, who chose David as a back singer for her last European tour.

We met Davin in Milan and talked about his first and new single, Stasera No, which anticipates the release of his debut album Cuor Leggero, his life and music influences, Michael Jackson and his father, and the role fashion played during his youth.

Visual and performing arts, culture and music, traveling. I could just live on this. Culture curator, curiosity is my daily bread. With a love for food, do not ever try to take the last bite off my plate: I could bite back.
