"A Renaissance Man"

David Serotkin is a teacher, has a degree in English, a master's degree in consciousness studies and apparently a healthy sense of humor. Then there's his music. He's an award- winning songwriter who plays volunteer acoustic concerts around the Bay Area and recently won an award for his inspiring music, which falls somewhere between Paul Simon and Sting.

The guy sounds too good to be true, huh? But he is true...

"Meaningful, Moving & Easy On The Soul..."

"David Serotkin is much more than a singer/songwriter. He is a musical craftsman, a wordsmith whose talent to tell a story is set to some of the best original musical compositions we've heard in a long time. His material is meaningful, moving and easy-on-the-soul."

-- Phil Peretz, President/Founder of Indie Artists Alliance - Indie Artists Alliance


2010 - Not Alone
2005 - None But This Time



David Serotkin (pronounced Sur-AHT-kin) is an award-winning singer/songwriter based in the San Francisco Bay Area. An adventurer, teacher, and mystic, David is passionate about exploring the mystery and wonder of life - something that comes through in his music.

David's recently released second album, Not Alone (2010), features 12 new songs to "soothe the soul and move the body." Not Alone echoes a call to find our own unique paths and live and love fully. The album is filled with catchy melodies, rich harmonies, insightful lyrics and groovin' rhythms.

In Fall 2006, David was honored as Musical Artist of the Quarter by IntegrativeSpirituality.org. The non-profit organization recognized David's music as being "beautiful, inspiring and coming from and bringing others to a deeper spiritual connection...and that such music has a unique ability to uplift the human spirit and inspire wisdom and healing from within..."

David's first album, None But This Time (2005), features 11 original songs, ranging from thoughtful ballads to poppy love tunes. Described as "Lyrical, poetic, soul-connecting…," the title track of None But This Time won a 2005 songwriting competition held by California-based Indie Artists Alliance, who chose the song out of over 200 international entries.

David also volunteers performances for non-profit organizations, for which he was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle in Nov. 2005. In addition, for two years, he hosted and performed a monthly songwriter showcase benefit concert in Oakland called Music That Cooks, with proceeds going to feed the homeless.

For those interested in raw biographical data: David was born in Mount Clemens, Michigan on May 14th, 1979 at 7:20 am. He grew up in Lansing, started the piano at age 6 and guitar at 15. He got a BA in English from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, and then a Masters in Consciousness Studies from John F. Kennedy University in Pleasant Hill, CA.
