David Allen Slater / Bio

David Allen Slater is a multi-talented singer/songwriter, composer and graphic artist who successfully released his self-produced debut CD, Influenced, on August 15, 2009. Gaining exposure for his music through the web, David was asked to participate in the Windows 7 collaboration with ReverbNation just 2 months after the release of his first album. His song, Run Away, was distributed through this collaboration on Playlist7 and branded with the Windows 7 logo. The song stayed ranked in the top ten for most of the time it was offered and early on was one of the top five songs given away free to help promote the new Windows 7 and up and coming musicians like himself.

David's complete album was added in regular rotation to Signal Radio FM in 2010 where it gained an even wider audience of listeners from around the globe. Two of his songs, "Piece of Mind" and "Inside of Me", both from his debut also began regular rotation on Acoustic Alternative Radio and were also offered on their compilation CD entitled "The Raw Side". That same year his music became available on iTunes, AmazonMP3, emusic and Rhapsody as well as many other major online services over the rest of the year.

Continuing from the success of "Influenced", David began writing songs for his next release, New Perspective, which was slated for release in the summer of 2011 but at this time is currently still in production. He is currently putting the finishing touches on the new album and gearing up for shows to promote the album's release.

His music can be readily heard all over the internet and recently in March 2011, his song "Who's Gonna Catch My Heart" was placed on another radio station in the Chicago area called The Edge. The station can be heard online by visiting www.theedgeonair.com

In May of 2011, David was chosen as Acoustic Alternative's Rising Star and was interviewed by Alternative Revolt Magazine. Alternative Revolt published the two page interview in their May issue along with offering a free download of his song Piece of Mind. Acoustic Alternative Radio also played a portion of that interview on their Raw Side Show that same month. Alternative Revolt Magazine's website is http://www.altrevolt.com

On June 12th 2011, David wrote and recorded his new hit single SWIM and released it the following day on his website and to Acoustic Alternative Radio. Two days after the website release, the single was submitted through TuneCore for digital distribution to iTunes and all the major online retailers. Then on Saturday June 18th, David released the Music Video to the world. By Monday June 20th, just one week after the song was released, it hit number one on Acoustic Alternative's Top 20 most requested songs.

He is currently working on his new album, New Perspective, as the follow up to his hit song SWIM.
