Face to Face

Face to Face are a multi genre, originals band from Lincolnshire, UK.


After a random Facebook meeting in mid-April 2018, a fruitful collaboration was born between David de Silva and Mel O.


Both David and Mel come from very different musical backgrounds, making this collision of styles a very creative and exciting experience.


For years Mel himself has played many instruments in bands with a variety of styles including: Folk Rock, Trad. Jazz, Comedy Show Bands, Punk, an Elvis Tribute, Ceilidh Dance Bands and more.


David is an award-winning singer-songwriter who has performed with many famous bands and acts in the music industry for many years.




This collaboration between them as proven to be very productive in the last five months with their new project called “Face to Face”. The bands writing process usually begins with Mel recording one of his many acoustic guitars to produce some very interesting and diverse instrumental pieces. Mel then sends the piece via email to David who then writes the lyrics, records his vocal tracks and finally produces the final song in his studio. With the overall process usually only taking a few days, writing new songs has been a very fast turnover. Both agree it’s a very exciting way to work as they never know what to expect from each other.






Having already recorded over 17 original songs, the band has decided to take the next step of turning their work into an album.


The band’s first album is multi-genre and is entitled “Equal Opportunists”. The album is a distinct entity to itself, with each of its tracks blending perplexities of subject matters including dealing with Addiction, Abuse, Breakdowns, Fables, Loss, War and Our Own Vices.


The album is released on Demon-X Records


With a recent public interest in their latest work, the band will be performing their songs live in the upcoming months.
