David Soul (born August 28, 1943) is an American-British actor and singer, best known for his role as Detective Kenneth "Hutch" Hutchinson in the television programme Starsky and Hutch (1975-1979). He gained his British citizenship in 2004.

Soul was born in Chicago, Illinois, United States, as David Richard Solberg. His mother was a teacher and his father, Dr. Richard Solberg, was a Lutheran minister, Professor of History and Political Science and Director of Higher Education for the American Lutheran Church. Dr Solberg was also Senior Representative for Lutheran World Relief during the reconstruction of Germany after World War II from 1949 until 1956. As such, the family moved frequently while Soul was growing up. Soul attended Augustana College, University of the Americas in Mexico City and the University of Minnesota. At 19, he turned down a professional baseball contract with the Chicago White Sox in order to study political science. In Mexico, inspired by students who taught him to play the guitar, Soul changed his direction and decided to follow his passion for music. His first appearance upon returning from Mexico to the States was in a club in Minneapolis, The 10 O'Clock Scholar.

Soul first gained attention as the "Covered Man" appearing on The Merv Griffin Show in 1966 & 1967, on which he sang while wearing a mask. He explained: "My name is David Soul, and I want to be known for my music." The same year, he made his television debut in Flipper.
