David Muise is a singer song writer originally from New Waterford Cape Breton. He resides in the community of Grand Lake (near Halifax) with his wife Marian, daughter Winter and boarder collies Kayla, Doc and Dublin. David has been busy playing at various events including song writers circles at the Music Room in Halifax, Home for Coloured Children Telethon and various charity events. David was privileged to play on one of the workshop stages at the Stan Rogers Folk Festival in 2008 and 2011 as well as on stage at the Sherbrooke Village Court House for their Thursday Night Concert series.
Growing up his first musical influence was The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makam. The first record album purchased with his own money, at the age of 14, was a Tommy Makam album because he wanted to learn Eric Bogal’s “The Band Played Waltzing Matilda”. Ever since, songs that told a story were where David’s heart was. The Irish influences gave way to artists like John Prine, Harry Chapin, Bruce Springsteen, and many other story song writers.
When David started to write his own songs this story theme was prominent. David released his first full length CD in the summer of 2007 called The Journey. It is a collection of 12 original songs telling heart felt stories. From the closing of the coal mining industry in Cape Breton to running from the law in Mexico, or finding your guardian angel, this group of songs takes you on a journey.
David is also the author of a series of children’s books about a rat who lives in a Cape Breton coal mine. His name is Archie the Pit Rat. The first book is titled Archie the Pit Rat Hero. The second book to be published soon is Archie the Pit Rat and the Christmas Bully. David is looking forward to writing many more adventures of Archie the Pit Rat.
