David Guilbault / Bio

Seattle singer-songwriter David Guilbault writes, records and performs soulful music of life, love and loss - heartfelt songs that live in the truth.

Mr. Guilbault spent a rewarding career as an award-winning news producer for ABC News, CNN and MSNBC.com. As a journalist, in pursuit of the credible truth, Mr. Guilbault reported stories as objectively as possible. Now, as a performing songwriter, pursing more universal truths, he can tell stories with a more subjective eye.

To that end, David has been performing for the past decade in intimate venues around Seattle. Lately, he has been gathering other notable musicians in the Pacific Northwest to play band shows and record his extensive repertoire of original songs.

David has performed as a solo and duo acoustic act all over Seattle for years, playing places like Egan’s Ballard Jam House, The Royal Room, Tiny Ninja Cafe, Cafe Racer, Skylark, C&P Coffee, Pegasus Coffee House, the High Fidelity, High Dive, Lo-Fi and Couth Buzzard.

Last year David performed around town with his electric band, culminating with a show on the Fountain Lawn Stage at the Northwest Folklife Festival.

Lately he has been gigging as a solo act again, slinging his custom-made Esquire electric guitar and playing through his sweet, drippy, reverb/delay/chorus-laden pedal board.

2014 has seen the release of two new EP’s – “True,” produced by Chris Klimecky and “Bare,” produced by Jason Goessl.

"True" is all about writing honestly, looking with a courageous eye at romantic relationships, political malfeasance, gender manipulations, selfish dreams, poetic inspirations and karmic justice. David sings the songs, while Chris Klimecky does all the arrangement, instrumentation, production and engineering. ("True" - http://davidguilbault.bandcamp.com/album/aint-nothin-but-the-truth)

"Bare" tells an unrelentingly sad and unapologetic story of loneliness, isolation, hurt and heartbreak. David sings low and sad, backed by the soulful baritone guitar of Jason Goessl and the tearful pedal steel guitar of Steve Norman. The lyrics are raw. The music is spare. The recording is intimate. This is the truth laid bare. ("Bare" - http://davidguilbault.bandcamp.com/album/bare)

You can download some of David's recorded work on BandCamp (http://davidguilbault.bandcamp.com/). His songs fit nicely into the Americana, Folk-Rock and Alt-Country genres.
