Born in 1980 to Norwegian parents, David Hansen studied singing with Andrew Dalton at the Conservatorium of his home town, Sydney. He supplemented his studies with James Bowman, David Harper and the Australian countertenor, Graham Pushee. In 2004, he gave his European debut in Aix-en-Provence. Since then he has been performing all over Europe and in the U.S.

David Hansen's work concentrates on opera, with focus on the Baroque and early Classical Era, but includes also Contemporary music. An estimate for his range is:
f# - d#''' (F#3 - D#6).
