David hope blends experiences and music into his own vehicle for story telling. He combines the intimacy of his rural coastal upbringing with a Nashville sound to create a unique sonic perspective that is original, yet familiar.
David grew up in Pescadero California, one of the few small towns that is nestled between the redwood forests of the santa cruz mountains and the pacific ocean. a mix of hippies, techies, farmers, and bikers supplied a wide variety of musical influences.
"during summers when i was a kid, my parents would always open all the windows and doors and blast music. A lot of Allman brothers, ac/dc, the beatles, eagles, tom petty, and a large stack of other classic rock cds. i used to sing the beach boys in the car with my grandpa and greenday with my mom. it was a wild mix"
in 2016 he moved to nashville for nursing school but left shortly after his second year to spend more time songwriting and honing his craft. the music scene in nashville was it's own education and provided the right mix of stimulation and support for creativity.
He now resides back in pescadero where he continues to write and play.
