BLUES: Funky Blues, BLUES: Acoustic Blues
Born in Providence, Rhode Island to a musical family. Both parents were musicians and introduced David to music at a young age. Growing up he was influenced by the sounds of salsa, jazz, and classical music. He began playing the violin at age 4. In the following years he began to try his hand at several different instruments. His strengths would show themselves in writing and singing. As the years past he evolved and the music became funkier more soulful. It began to breathe life in to him, building him into a strong performer.
In the years since he has been involved with many different types of music. He has played with many popular local players and built a large following for his last band. He even had the privilege of playing
an evening with the Ray Charles’ band at a local club during the Newport Jazz Festival. He is currently working on writing and recording his own music.
He has sung duets with the Raylettes. Played and recorded with members of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Roomful of Blues, Young Neal and the Vipers,
Blueswagon,The High Rollers, Suicide Squeeze, The Ray Charles Band, Raise the Roof, Duke Robilard and the list goes on. He also appeared in
and help produce the movie "Code of Ethics". He edited the audio portion of the Roomful of Blues CDextra for "Turn it up, Turn it loose" as well as
designing their first website. He is an all around artist: writer, musician, painter, sculptor, poet, songwriter, performer, etc. And no matter what, he
works with complete and utter passion, giving 300 percent...everytime.
