Born and raised in Vancouver, David began his musical career as an instrumentalist for other artists and has developed into a gifted songwriter in his own right. Compassionate and spiritual, his intimate voice will draw you into his world, filled with tales of quiet desperation, longing and the triumph of the human spirit.
Infusing a blend of folk/pop influences with a touch of bluegrass, his versatile guitar style and songwriting is a result of many years of studio and performance experiences. His previous bands have played at various folk festivals in BC (Mission Folk Festival, Winter Roots Festival, Sunshine Folk Festival), opening for such acclaimed artists as Mae Moore, Stephen Fearing and Wyckham Porteous. As a solo artist, he has performed at the Back Forty Festival (Morden, Manitoba), the Trout Forest Music Festival (Ear Falls, Ontario) and the Winterfolk Roots and Blues Festival (Toronto, Ontario).
He also performs with Guelph’s The Hazy Maidens: Amy McCann, Julie McCann – they sound like kindred spirits; voices intertwined in harmony, instruments woven together in musicality and a fusion of energy & interconnection. They are those friends each of us have had… the friend you had all your firsts with, the friend who knew you better than you knew yourself. Their music is infused with their history & lifelong friendship. Once you hear their 3-part harmonies & lush sound, these are friends you’ll want to keep.
