David Brighton as David Bowie
"You're not alone..."   

"Time and Space Oddity- As modern physics teaches us, time is relative. Time travel however is still in its theoretical stage. At least that's what I thought before seeing Space Oddity. Fortunately I was near the front of the stage and had the luxury of verifying my senses from time to time. But for those sitting in the rear, it must have seemed to them, that they truly had been shifted in time and space. David Brighton has the voice, moves and look to actually step in for David Bowie if he were unavailable and few would ever know. The band members are not only accomplished musicians, but they have nailed the original arrangements down perfectly. Experiencing Space Oddity made for a truly remarkable evening."
- Harry Maslin, Producer
(of David Bowie's YOUNG AMERICANS  & STATION TO STATION Albums)

"Well done! David Brighton recreates many of David Bowie's personas with much style.  If you get a chance to go and see Space Oddity, do." 
-BowieNet  (David Bowie's Official Web Site)

"There are a lot of tribute artists out there, but not very many can actually convince you... make you believe that you’re experiencing the real thing. David Brighton however, is an exception to the rule. He really takes on the persona of David Bowie and is quite convincing. I’m one of those huge, hard-core, dedicated Bowie fans. When I first saw David Brighton and his band, Space Oddity, I remember on the first song, I had a bit of an attitude. I stood in the back, with my arms crossed. After a while I forgot that it wasn't David Bowie. Brighton (let’s just call him David Bowie) did a phenomenal performance as the Thin White Duke... the closest thing I’ve seen to the real David Bowie. Catch David Brighton, and experience the amazing David Bowie...in the incarnations of past years...up close and personal - or as close as you can get in the year 2006."

in career spanning TV ad.

"(David Brighton) did a great job (portraying early David Bowie alter-egos in the Reality/Vittel commercial), all the fans fell for it."
- News Editor of BowieNet
(David Bowie's Official Web Site)

It is a fabulous TV ad (with David Brighton) portraying David Bowie in his many guises over his career (Aladdin Sane, Diamond Dogs, Hunky Dory, Scary Monsters) and the modern David being crowded out of his house by them... and drinking his last few drops of Vittel!
- Tony Visconti, Producer (of sixteen David Bowie albums)

"Bowie time warps and David Brighton...We have been thrilling to the Vittel water advert that David Brighton appeared in playing David Bowie's various incarnations."
 - Mojo Music Magazine

"David Brighton IS the Bowie we’ve all seen and missed through the years... Now, we’re not just talking about some guy that goes up there, wears the canary yellow suit and belts out a few tunes. I’m talking about a guy who’s studied the man from head to toe.
     We arrive early; to make sure we have a good spot up front... the opening chords to “Fame” begin and from the darkness, the Thin White Duke emerges.... He slinks across the stage, the way only one man could possibly do... David B[righton] emerges and his face, body, and voice exude the aura of the great one.
     For the next 90 minutes, David B[righton] had the women to their feet dancing before him, throwing him notes, yelling out songs, and he does the nod, the wink and the smile. He played for the women, as well as the men, and held the hands of a few ladies that made their way to the front of the stage. He could tell who the “visitors” were, a.k.a. the girls that were dragged to show, and played for them. He made sure the people in the back were having as much of a good time as those in the front, and somehow convinced them to venture further forward. As “Mick Ronson” went into a solo, David B[righton] escapes and returns a few minutes later as Ziggy Stardust.
     As his third set begins, he then sends us forward to Bowie’s early 80’s and that canary yellow suit, peroxide hair and a softened mature David comes out to greet us. One that never looks back, but plays the tunes where women are now taking their shoes off and offering them to him as props for “Let’s Dance”  (even if they were silver, rather than red). The men, at this point are mesmerized by the ride they’ve been taken on... I even heard a “Panic in Detroit” come from the tall guy behind me.
     David B. had something up his sleeve. He made a quick smile and the familiar sound of my childhood filled the room. With voices, charm and something that my former seven year old self used to die for, Brighton played for us. The room was thumpin' and the vast generations sang along with him, ashamed of nothing.
     Just like Bowie would always back himself up with a talented band, Brighton had a five person band behind him, each with their own style, and as Bowie would, he stepped away into the shadows to let them have their moments. Because, without good support, he’d just be that guy belting out tunes...
     This is a full-on production, and not for small bars or clubs. He really is a treat to see. Do yourself a favor and go see him."

- Matt Pinfield, Music Critic / KROQ Radio DJ / former MTV VJ

"David Brighton's Bowie tribute is an uncanny likeness musically as well as visually. I was blown away..."
- Rob Christie, Capitol Records

"Space Oddity promises a great Bowie tribute, and what they give is nothing short of the opportunity to go back in time and as closely as can be done, see Bowie live. The talent in the group, especially Brighton's vocals make Space Oddity a tribute act which needs to be experienced."
-The LA Review
