David has been writing Maritime themed folk songs for nearly twenty years now. After a time away in Toronto – where he discovered an audience hungry for Maritime songs – he began crafting and performing his own. Moving back to Nova Scotia in 1994 – he set about finding an audience here at home to continue what he started in southern Ontario.

David has had many songs recorded locally and away over the past decade – as recent as Evans and Doherty’s last CD – with Will Ye Come Away; to McGinty – ‘Let Them Build Ships’ and ‘Don’t Go Out’... Canadian folk troubadours Tanglefoot have recorded two as well – also – Rick Fielding (Toronto), Rick Barron (PEI), Tom Leadbeatter (Toronto), Shaneygannock (Newfoundland), Brakin Tradition (Halifax) and Cyril MacPhee (Cape Breton). Soon to be international with his song the Anti Chantey - released in Seattle, Washington by a sea chantey singing duo. Plus many of his songs are fast becoming pub favorites in and around the Maritimes.

David has been a musician full time in Halifax for some time now, and over the years has added some wonderful events to the resume. He has played at folk festivals such as – Stan Rogers Folk Festival; Miramichi Folksong Festival; Atlantic Canada Festival in Toronto; Kingston All Folks Festival four times; Bay of Quinte Summer Festival in Picton Ontario several times; and Earthsong to name a few. There have been folk club performances in and around southern Ontario and here in the Maritimes and all kinds of pubs and clubs as well.
