Kramer spent his early years in Worcester, the city where he was born. While there, Kramer had the opportunity to take music lessons from Cromwell Everson, the classical composer. He started off his singing career on a small level in the sixties by playing with the South African band named 'The Creeps'. This talented luminary pursued his music career professionally in mid-seventies. He started to sing at the campus concerts and folk clubs in South Africa. Gaining command over South African English and Cape Afrikaans, David smartly used both the languages in his lyrics. In order to induce creativity, the multi-lingual expert often used both the languages in the same song. Depicting a dark satire and a gritty realism, his compositions described stories and characters from the small town South Africa. David brought his stage performances to life by depicting himself as a rural everyman who travelled on an old bicycle with his cheap guitar on the dusty roads of small town South Africa. Singing Boland patois he relived his youth and narrated stories in both the languages.
In 1980, David released his first album titled BAKGAT! via Mountain Records. Given the large number of sales of his album, Kramer was awarded with eleven 'gold' and one 'platinum' record. With the release of his succeeding album Die Verhaal van Blokkies Joubert, Kramer rose to stardom with an image that gained immense popularity and public exposure. The album spawned chart topping singles such as Die Royal Hotel and Blokkies Joubert. The singles made it to the top of numerous South African radio stations. The album itself ranked at number eleven on the South African Long Play charts. The single, Stoksielalleen was another chart topping song from the album titled Kwaai. Kramer released six albums with Mountain Records. All of these six albums were either awarded with a 'gold' status or a 'platinum' status.
In 1983, Volkswagen signed an agreement with David to become the brand ambassador of their 'Microbus'. This media drive linking the idiosyncratic South African image of the star to the vehicle won the hearts of South Africans. Given the immense popularity, David Kramer became the face of the SA Volkswagen Microbus advertisements. He successfully established himself as a renowned household name with his guitar and his bicycle and, not to forget, the trademark red veldskoen shoes. Kramer was to continue for this image for the next thirteen years. This was probably the longest celebrity endorsement drive that the country witnessed.
Kramer won an Olivier Award with Taliep Petersen. They both met at a folk concert at the University of Cape Town, staged by Des and Dawn Lindberg in the mid-seventies. They jointly worked on the stage musical District Six in 1986. The highly acclaimed musical described the story of the residents of District Six who were forced to move out during the apartheid. Kramer and Petersen also worked on the Kat & the Kings and Fairyland. After the dreadful murder of Peterson in 2006, Kramer produced Kramer Petersen Songbook to honor the memory of their long partnership. The performance was scheduled at the Baxter Theater and conducted sold out shows since day one. Kramer has established himself as an enduring figure in the music scene of South Africa. His most recent musical compositions illustrate stories about the ordinary life in South Africa.
