David Wiseman is a solo singer/songwriter from the Appalachian Mountains of NC, creating “Blues, Folk, and Ballads; Truths and Lies.” It’s music with a dog, a couch, and washing machine on the front porch sound. David's songs are topical and timeless, songs that will touch a nerve, sound an alarm, start a revolution, make you laugh, cry, think and even sing along, songs that can feel like a punch in the stomach or like a long warm hug. His songs tell stories that are often left untold. His instrumentation is as bare and naked as the souls of the songs he writes. David's acoustic guitar, harmonica, porch board, and unmistakable gruff vocal style that resonates with listeners.
David Wiseman is a singer-songwriter from the mountains of Western NC. “Blues, Folk, and Ballads; Truths and Lies” describes his topical and timeless songs; music with a dog, couch, and a washing machine on the front porch kind of sound; a clever, gritty, and authentic approach to songwriting.
An Army war veteran, David writes songs in order to understand humankind and the world around him. “Panes skew what is really in front of us into distorted images that shape our unique perspective.”
His performances are enthusiastic and moving. Acoustic guitar, harmonica, a porchboard and David’s unmistakable gruff vocal style unite to reflect the souls of the songs he writes and the tales he tells. “Let me tell you a story…” draws listeners into his songs about hobos and trains, vagabonds and wars, dying and love.
