Bio

Born in the mid-fifties in Dallas, Texas, David's early memories of such world events as Hurricane Carla, the Cuban missile crisis, and the Kennedy assassination served to awaken him to how world events shape the culture around him. But the event that most influenced his early years was seeing The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show.

Somehow seeing their ability to transcend mere musician antics and become something larger than the talents of those four young men, David could sense that music and culture would forever be a dynamically intertwined and living phenomena. And though many people were inspired by The Beatles seeing them did something special for David; it inspired him to also speak his thoughts and feelings through his own original music..

Most profoundly, the guitar and the story telling mastery of James Taylor as well as the harmonies and acoustic vitality of the 70’s band America continued to direct him toward a calmer, more introspective sound.

Later, the bold starkness yet intelligent design of Sting's early work with The Police also served to drive his unique sound outward, embracing a more raw style in his writing.

And, through the years, other influences have included the incredible mastery of contemporary christian artists Phil Keaggy and Out of the Grey; confirmed his suspicion that there exist an apparent truth that "God often saves the greatest talents for Himself."

David says that recent influences in his songwriting have included the work of John Mayer and Nora Jones.

David presently considers Canyon Lake, Texas to be his home.
