I provide an eclectic range of styles on acoustic and/or electric guitar. From folk, to pop, to rock and in between. I can create ambiance depending on your needs and desires; upbeat and dance-able ditties or soft, introspective ballads. In addition to 2+ hours of original material, I have an ever-expanding collection of covers - some deep cuts by my favorite artists, some more well known selections to engage the audience. I own sound equipment and can completely run my own sound if necessary - just say the word on that.

What to Expect
I have my own equipment and can completely set up and tear down in a timely manner. I always strive to bring energy and depth to my performances so that I can connect with the audience and provide an entertaining evening that is a unique experience!
Born and raised in Everett, Washington, David has been involved in music since age 8 when he began piano lessons. In 2003 he picked up guitar and began songwriting. Years later with his third album "Let Love Abound", he continues to deliver deeply personal material that is both fiercely original and relatable. With raw, honest and unique stories set to memorable melodies, his style has been likened to Nick Drake, Joan Baez and Elliot Smith. David's music brings light to his own experiences while leaving room for listeners to draw parallels of their own.
