As an Artist, David is blessed with a diverse musical background, beautiful voice, and the ability to write lyrics that are grounded in the reality of life’s drama , no matter how raw. Born to a musical and songwriting family with strong Christian values, David spent his youth surrounded by music. His love of Folk music is what piqued his interest in pursuing a musical career . At age 15, David formed his first band, "Walt – Dizzy.” Their solid southern hard rock sound, paved the way for them to land gigs, opening up for bands such as Steppenwolf as well as headlining local shows throughout the South, where they developed a strong following. While still a teenager, David next joined the hard rock metal ban, Medicine Mann, as lead singer and co-songwriter, touring the south and opening for such bands as: Quiet Riot, Skid - Row, Warrant, Twisted Sister, and I Mother Earth. After relocating to San Francisco in 1999, he had the opportunity to open up for Artists such as Carlos Santana (Santana), and Eric Martin (Mr. Big).

David is currently promoting his latest EP titled “You Never Know”, which is also the title of the first single.

Lyrics

You Never Know

Written By: David Fair/Co-writer-Big Vinny

Theres a white cross on the side of the road
Sweet sixteen Emily Rose,
She worked all summer, just to buy that car,
She left her mama's house she didn't get that far

Chorus
You could live a hundred years, or just one day
It can take you by surprise, with no warning
Life is so precious as fast as it comes it can go,
You never know
You never know

Old man Dawson, sittin' on his front porch swing,
Sippin on sweet iced tea his wife always made
She came out looking for his smilin' face,
But the Good Lord took him with,
Amazing Grace

Chorus:
You could live a hundred years,
Or just one day,
It can take you by surprise with no warning,
Life is so precious as fast as it comes it can go,
You never know
You never know

As they lay the roses on them,
And they put 'em in the ground,
They'll be a million angels singing,
when they play the trumpets sound,
I can hear them now

Chorus
You could live a hundred years,
Or just one day,
It can take you by surprise with no warning,
Life is so precious as fast as it comes it can go,
You never know
You never know
