Greetings and Welcome!

My name is David P Shortland and I am a musician (piano and keyboards) and composer, who just happens to be ‘Vision Impaired’ (Totally Blind). 

My project studio, (where all the ‘Magic’ happens), is located in Buderim on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Please feel free to browse the website, check out ALL my music, (for ‘kiddly winx’ of all ages).


When not in my studio, I play in Brisbane's Premier Covers Band CROSSOVER, providing piano, keyboards and vocals. Our repertoire; music from the 60s thru to now!

  If you live anywhere from the Gold Coast to Bundaberg, check out the CROSSOVER Gig Guide, come along, say ‘Hello' and enjoy the music. 


The Haunted House

What do Ghosts, Rock’n’roll, Skeletons, Goblins, Lullabies, Dancing, Comedy, Calamity, Magical Beings and Mobile Phones, have in common? 

The Answer......... The Haunted House Musical

Pirates! We're Pirates!

Three Pirate Crews! Three Magic Gems! Three Magic Locks!

Surely these are the makings of an incredible tale! 


There are a number of albums and singles to be found on this page...some of which are:

This song is about living with Vision Impairment,a disability which effects many people throughout the world including myself.
