"David's songs are like the gentle tap of a velvet hammer on the bell of your heart." - David Morreale (Host of Baltimore Folk Series SNAFU)

An award winning songwriter and instrumentalist, David Glaser has been recording and playing live music from the 70's forward, either as a solo artist, a band member, or a side man (see www.davidglaser.com for pictures & bio). In recent years David has been making his presence felt as a solo artist in the acoustic/folk songwriter scene. You may have seen him on the Main Stage at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival (Kerrville, TX) or Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (Hillsdale NY). David's 2nd solo CD, "Cars & Lovers" (2009) played well on Folk Radio with the popular titles “Picture in My Car” and “House in Baltimore”. David's songs are lush and evocative, and are delivered with the solid stage presence of a seasoned, accomplished performer. His versatile guitar, mandolin, and harmony singing skills have made him a sought after side man and studio musician. He has performed regularly with Lowen & Navarro, Dan Navarro, Ellis Paul, Laurie MacAllister (Red Molly), Stephanie Corby, and Bob Sima, among others. David's newest CD, "Caffeine & Nicotine", is completed and will be released shortly. David is currently working on an all cover CD of songs written by his friends, and a live-in-studio "best of" CD for release in the immediate future, as well as an all-new original CD.

About "Caffeine & Nicotine" (2017):
David's latest offering is another themed project, with songs inspired by his family, life and times - with most containing some reference to coffee and/or tobacco. The songs' subjects touch on love, addiction, aging, poverty, soldiering, and life on the road, just to name a few. The project includes co-writes with good friends Jonathan Byrd (Chapel Hill NC), Karen Mal (Austin TX) and Kim Miller (Wimberly TX). The CD is finished and release is imminent as of this writing.

About "Cars and Lovers" (2009):
The February 2009 release by singer/songwriter David Glaser is centered on the intertwined themes of the highway and the heart. This ten song genre-bending collection shows David’s range as a writer, and as a player, incorporating elements of blues, folk, rock, and country into a delicious Americana stew. Spicing up the flavor even more are inspired guest vocal performances by fellow songwriters Chris Trapper and Karen Mal, and exciting instrumental work by Ryan MacMillan (drums, Push Stars, Matchbox 20), Mike Hardwick (pedal steel, Eliza Gilkyson) and Eleanor Whitmore (violin, Slaid Cleaves, Kelly Willis).
