David Palfreyman top


David Palfreyman began his musical career at the age of 12 by blowing into the mouthpiece of a trombone in the school brass band. By the time of leaving he had already joined the senior version of the school band named ‘Rhodian Brass’, touring venues across England and Wales and consequently playing on the LP record, entitled ‘The Sound Of Rhodian Brass’. Since those heady days of brass he took up the guitar and started to sing, fronting numerous bands and acoustic duo’s along the way. By the mid 90’s, he formed his own band ‘The Custard Garage’ playing solely his own material and gigging in and around the North Of England.

Around the turn of the millennium he moved to London and studied Drama at Richmond Drama School but also had a regular acoustic spot at the’ The Half Moon’ live music venue in Putney. Whilst fitting playing and recording around numerous Theatre performances, his song writing prowess is certainly rich in life experience.

In 2010 under his nick name 'Malf', he released his debut album entitled ‘RadioMagnetofon’ featuring a wide range of musical styles, incorporating Rock, Punk, Soul, Heavy Metal and Indie genres.

MALF has been gaining much interest and support and has appeared on Uckfield FM, BFBS Radio and also on ‘Tom Robinson introducing’ on BBC Radio 6. 
Malf’s songs have also been released on the ‘Buzzlighter’ CD compilations for college radio by The US record label, Shut Eye Records.

Malf have been gigging in venues in the North and South of the UK and recently played at Malostranska Beseda, one of the top venues in Prague, Czech Republic.

Recently MALF played at the Tramlines festival in Sheffield and also the 4 & 20 Blackbird Festival in California USA which was organized by Record Producer Sylvia Massey.
