David Readman (born 6 July 1970) is an English singer best known as the vocalist of hard rock band Pink Cream 69[1] and former vocalist of progressive metal band Adagio.[2][3] He released a solo album in 2007 and was part of German guitarist Alex Beyrodt's band Voodoo Circle, from 2008 to 2016,[4] returning in 2020.[5]

In 2015, two new projects featuring Readman on lead vocals were announced. The first called Room Experience, is a melodic rock project led by Italian musician Gianluca Firmo, with a self-titled album released in May 2015.[6] And the second is Almanac, the new heavy metal band led by former Rage guitarist Victor Smolski.[7] In September 2016 it was announced he had reformed the David Readman Band, his solo band that he founded in Germany. It now features Dutch musicians Emile Marcelis (ex-Vengeance, bass), Eddie Claessens (Vandale, drums) and Bram Engelen (Ostrogoth, guitars).

In 2017, it was announced that Readman has joined British heavy metal band Tank.[8] In October 2017, a new project comes out called Pendulum of Fortune, featuring Readman with Bodo Schopf, Franky R. and led by Vladimir Shevjakov.[9]
