"The Man of a Thousand Songs"



                                                                       Vintage Folk, Roots,  

Gospel, Americana, Country, and Pop Standards.


With a repertoire of almost 1000 songs,  David plays a wide variety of music and is also a singer-songwriter with his own catalog of original music.

David's rhythmic guitar playing and gentle and tasteful fingerpicking style combined with pleasant (if not somewhat gravely) vocal arrangements are reminiscent of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and John Prine.


Among his favorite musician-songwriters are Steve Goodman, Tom Russell, Jimmy Dale Gilmore, Butch Handcock,  Joe Ely, Rambling Jack Elliott, Guy Clark, Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt, and Utah P. Phillips, and with a pinch of the pop/rock and country of the Eagles,  Jimmy Buffett, Eric Clapton, Garth Brooks, The Grateful Dead, Van Morrison and other modern and traditional word‑smiths and musicians.


A lifelong musician and performer, David has played Coffee Houses, bars, colleges, bookstores, Nursing Homes/Retirement Centers, Schools, and most indoor/outdoor concert venues across America and throughout Europe.  He is proud to have shared the stage with "Utah" Bruce Phillips,  Jerry Jeff Walker, Jack Elliott, and many more. 

David also is the Station Manager at KSHD 94.3 FM in Shady Cove, OR.  with his own Wednesday afternoon show called "David's Back 40".  Americana and folk music that you won't hear anywhere else on the dial!
