Think Zepgrass. Beer Wine and Turpentine is the creative extension of multi-instrumentalist David Kaufman and as such has performed recently in various venues in the Santa Cruz area, including the Kuumbwa Jazz Center, Don Quixote’s, live music festivals and your local bar. Whether seen in ensemble format or solo, the sound remains the same: raw, gritty songwriting, vocals ranging from soft and sublime to ear-splittingly loud, and complex fingerstyle instrumentals. Combined, this is Beer Wine and Turpentine.
