Asheville. 2009. David Dhoop places the finishing touch on a debut CD - Don't Miss A Thing. It's released in May of that year, and with that, The David Dhoop Band is born. The guys in the band are professional musicians. Watch'em play for a minute and that's obvious. They're good friends too. Also obvious. Their music fits solidly under the umbrella of rock, but as Alli Marshall of Mountain Xpress put it, "This is not straightforward rock: Indeed, Dhoop's very style suggests that he's mastered both the writing and the playing parts of music and is now out to construct songs that hang in the balance between familiar and wildly experimental". We agree.
