David Hartlett joined Colvex after a frantic few weeks of auditions following Shaun's departure in early 2011.
Formerly bassist with Watford based band The Informals and, prior to that, with farGone (whilst serving in the RAF!), David immediately impressed with his versatile playing ability. Also being lightning fast on the uptake when learning the band's material — helped no doubt by his part time job as a guitar tutor — David edged past his fellow contenders to become Colvex's third bass guitarist.
Also offering the band new possibilities as an extra backing vocalist David joined Simon and Gav to embark on some of Colvex's biggest shows following the release of their 2012 début album, including Croxfest,Wilkestock and the Cambridge Rock Festival.
After three successful years with Colvex David eventually parted ways with the group in late 2014 but continues to play alongside Gav in covers band Six Go Mad.
