Mancunian songsmith David Potts aka ‘Pottsy’ is back with his first solo album, a highly energetic, hits-packed offering ‘Coming Up For Air’ in January 2007. Those who remember Pottsy from Monaco and RAM are about to have their patience rewarded.

Opening the album is 'Got to be Someone', a song capturing the feeling of isolation and not fitting in or being part of the world around you. “I think I wrote it after watching Quadrophenia for the umpteenth time. I wanted to keep the music quite intense and claustrophobic, sticking to three chords round and round with a Motown beat.” says Pottsy.
‘Coming Up for Air’ was recorded, produced, and almost entirely performed by Potts himself, mixed by Tom Knot (The Earlies) at Airtight and mastered by Guy Davie (Royksopp, Badly Drawn Boy) at The Exchange.
