David is a singer/songwriter, guitarist, and bassist in Durham, NC. A native of northern New Jersey, he got started with a $24.95 guitar from Lafayette Electronics in 1979 and developed 25 years of bad habits before seeking formal guitar instruction.
David spent the latter part of high school as bass player in the cover band, Evenstar, and took his first foray into songwriting with Rainbow's End in 1984. Graduate school in Gainesville, Florida, brought his bass skills to Fragmentary Blue, an originals band with a strong U2 influence.
David's longest stint was from 1990 to 2001 with the Denver-based folk-rock band, Dogs in the Yard, led by Jay Reusch and Dan Bessesen. They released two albums - Sunday Afternoon (1997) and 'Til the Summer Fades Away (2000) - and some of David's songs with them can be streamed here.
David moved full-time in 2001 to the North Carolina Research Triangle area and briefly backed up singer-songwriter, Cole Guerra. He has since played solo shows at area singer-songwriter venues such as Caffe Driade, Open Eye Café, and Intrepid Life Coffee & Spirits. In 2014, you'll find him playing more solo acoustic/electric gigs, reworking old songs, and writing anew.
