One event on July 19, 2023 at 5:00 pm
David began singing in church at the age of five and never looked back. As a teen he competed in vocal competitions on the state and national levels for multiple years. Through these competitions he toured the state of Florida, performing in solo exhibitions.
Early in his adult musical career, David moved to Atlanta, Georgia. While there he had the privilege to be the bass player for Nappy’s Joint. This opportunity was a proving ground for his skills and profound influence on his style and craft. Following Atlanta, David returned to the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast and began building his full-time career as a performing singer-songwriter. For five years he had the privilege of performing as a writer in the Frank Brown International Songwriter’s Festival held at the world-famous Flora-Bama Lounge. David is one of the regularly scheduled artists at the Flora-Bama, with performances spanning the last twelve years.
While maintaining his regular shows at local restaurants and bars, he has performed in many local festivals. This includes the Bayfest Music Festival held in Mobile, Alabama where he performed with Dennis “Finger Roll” Nelson and opened for Mary J. Blige. Classically trained, David throws a little Soul, Rhythm & Blues, and storytelling into the mix to create a style uniquely his own. He credits established musicians, including James Taylor and Chris Stapleton, in providing a strong influence on his musical style.
