Davey was born in Dublin to a large family, to date I've found he has one brother and two sisters, Rachael and Annie. In his early years he was a published teen poet and member of the national cross-country team, and later moved to the University Of Wales, Aberystwyth to study Agriculture. After being told by his lecturer that no one ever got a job out of his course, he turned to music for a living and met fellow Crimea member Owen Hopkin while part of the band The Crocketts.
In 2002 Davey and Owen formed The Crimea. Davey is the main lyricist, composer and producer of the band's songs, and also partakes in solo gigs under the name of Kernel Krok. He plays rhythm guitar in The Crimea, and can also play the Accordion and Harmonica.
His favourite bands are said to include Ah-Ha and Dusty Springfield. He was also a fan of the Fish Brothers at one point.
Religiously worshiped, criminally underrated. There's more to Davey than I could ever think of writing here. Shame I can't think of anything right now :o\
