David Wakeling is a singer-songwriter from Portland, OR. Self taught on the drums and guitar, he started writing songs with his previous band "Against Musical Advice". He recently released his second solo CD "Gravity" on which he composed and performed all tracks. He also writes and performs with his band "This, not this".
His influences vary widely and include Steely Dan,Todd Rundgren, Pat Metheny, Larry Carlton, James Taylor and home town heroes Craig Carothers and Tim Ellis. He is a sucker for harmonies and a good story, and hopes to convey those elements in his music.
He begrudgingly admits that accordion lessons as a child helped fuel his passion for music. For that he thanks Mom and Dad.
