David has been personally recording, engineering, and mixing his debut album in a generously donated professional studio. He has also produced and directed, along with videographer Jared Wright, an exciting new music video "Whiskey Bottle" which has just been released alongside the brand new album, "Just Drop On By". BOTH WERE RELEASED, WITH GREAT REVIEWS, ON DECEMBER 14th!!
In early reviews, "Just Drop on By" has been called "a phenomenal experience" and "an album you'll want to revisit again and again." David himself has been called "one of those exceedingly rare talents who deserves your full attention. Now." His quotable lyrics have been called witty, insightful, and honest and with his Berklee College of Music training he creates catchy melodies that are engaging and memorable. Audiences enjoy his rich gravel-tinged voice and charming personality. You'll have to see him live or hear his record to know just what people are talking about.
David plays guitar, piano, and harmonica, combining a variety of genres including Americana, Folk, Country, and Rock. He performs in house concerts and small venues as a captivating solo act, and also performs in bigger venues with top notch players collectively called the David Luning Band.
