"EntertainingU - Jacksonville, FL"

David's musical savvy and creative finger-picking technique is most impressive, along with his smooth as silk voice. His advanced finger picking technique combined with his high quality chords give David musical prowess as a troubadour extraordinaire.
- Rick Grant

Milam's haunting lyrics flow from life experiences that are common to us all. In lilting tones reminiscent of folk music icon Burl Ives, Milam translates life into music that touches the soul. - Susan Brandenburg

Living Out My Dream

David is a fourth generation musician who grew up surrounded by relatives playing guitar, banjo, harmonica and singing blues, country, gospel and folk music. It is little wonder that David’s musical style is, as he would put it, “all over the road”. David started playing guitar and singing while in elementary school. Soon after he was learning to play the banjo and 12 string guitar. At 16, David heard singer/songwriter, Jim Croce on the Tonight Show. Before Jim had finished his first song, David knew this was the path he wanted to take and started to work on his goal of playing guitar and singing to a listening audience. From fronting a top forty band in the eighties to a series of musical duos he found a way live out his dream while maintaining a day job and raising a family. In 2002 a fellow musician urged David to write his first song. Since then David has been writing lyrics and music that come straight from his heart and show his understanding of life’s love, loss and friendships that can only come from the wisdom of experience. Music is now a full time job for David and he plays about 100 gigs a year at coffee houses, house concerts, restaurants and festivals and has won accolades for his songwriting from the Will McLain Foundation and for his fingerstyle guitar playing at the Gamble Rogers Festival. In October 2006 David won Male Soloist of the year by fans and staff of Songwriters Showcases of America. The SSA in DeLand, Florida and the title track voted 2005 Songwriter of the Year David from his cd Livin Out My Dream won best Narrative Song of the Year.
David is a Florida native and lives in Jacksonville with his wife Pamela, along with several very loved cats and a Jack Russell – Dachshund mix he calls Molly. Playing, singing and writing are happily not only a constant passion; it is also his full time occupation.
