Biography

Multi-instrumentalist, Dave Corwin, started playing trumpet when he was five years old. He received a scholarship to California State University Northridge. From there he began his career as a rock musician and doing soundtracks for film and television. As a musician, he opened for Billy Preston at the Rebuild LA Benefit Concert. Other live performance highlights include The Roxy Theatre, Whisky A Go-Go, The Troubadour, Rainbow, and PlaysCool at the San Diego Sports Arena.

His soundtrack work has appeared on NBC, Fox, HBO and many film festivals throughout the country. He worked on Fox Television's The Family Guy, The WB's Mission Hill and did special effects work on Sasha Baron Cohen's Bruno movie. He also does television commercials (animation, editing and music), most recently, a series of ads for Blue Tax.

Reviewers say of his music, "VERY cool and unique!" (Lord Litter, The Lord Litter Radio Show), "There's plenty of references to Corwin sounding a little like Bowie, and they're not wrong... I can also hear the reference to John Lennon" (Dave W Hughes / Modern Dance Magazine), "...complex music that will have you quickly immersed in Corwin's world of sound." (Bryan Baker / Gajoob), "There is some awesome, creative stuff here!" (Don Schockow / Groupie Chick Radio)

Lyrics

Shaolin Master

Written By: Dave Corwin

All through the ages we have looked to the sky
Hoping and praying that our soul will not die
Some priests use beads to attain the light
But I’d bet on the Shaolin monk any time in a fight

I’m gonna balance some buckets while standing on swords
Gonna focus on Buddha while being struck with boards
Yeah, I’m going to the temple, gonna climb every stair
And when I get back, enemies beware

I wish I were a Shaolin Master
With a deep bow I’d show my grace
And if I were a Shaolin Master
I’d put the bad guys back in their place

Well I might have no hair
But I can snatch a fly right from the air
And yeah, this looks a lot like a dress
But with my Kung Fu moves I can kick your ass

I wish I were a Shaolin Master
With a deep bow I’d show my grace
And if I were a Shaolin Master
I’d put the bad guys back in their place
