Q: David, who are some of the musicians you've played with over the years who have influenced you or your playing/writing?
A: My high school jazz teacher, David Mundy, had a big influence in my jazz style. I also had the opportunity to play with Ira Sullivan 2 years ago at UM, which taught me a lot about when not to play.
My friend Dylan Kolb-Bond was one of the main reasons why I got back into hip hop and R&B. That's about all I can think of right now.
