JC Chasez (*NSYNC) to Dave Alvin (The Blasters). Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus, Mark McGrath, Toni Childs to Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), Peter Case (The Plimsouls), and Jill Sobule. He has appeared and/or played on many film and television productions including Ocean’s 8, 50 First Dates, The Gilmore Girls and The Tonight Show. These accumulative experiences bring David to release his debut CD- BE AS IT MAY, a self-produced record of original songs and the companion EP, THE LOST COMPANION. BE AS IT MAY is an honest, soul searching and often gut-wrenching exploration into the beauty, the depth and the despair that life and relationships can bring. David dives into his personal experiences and leaves no stone unturned, no matter how deep and heavy the unearthing may be. From the haunting melodies of LONELY SOUND to the upbeat, quirky and honest HOW FAR AWAY, David offers tunes that manage to be catchy yet genuine. David is both able to laugh at himself and lay his heart on the line. He shares a universal life experience that will stop many in their tracks.
