"He ordered onion rings for dinner as I got a glimpse of his art on his ipad. We were at a band meeting in Berkeley. I was so intrigued by his beautifully twisted art, I almost forgot why I was there in the first place.
There was another layer I immediately tapped into, another creative existence-
a true artist. That's all I could see. You just know it because you feel it.
Plain as day.

Without a doubt David and the camera are in a lifelong relationship.
He said, " You will see a lot of angst at my shows, a lot of pain".
Given my relevant background and living with artists all my life, it is apparent that David's music and stage persona are a beautiful extension of his many talents.
He his completely mindful of his expressive, digital paintings and portrays his lyrics on stage as if he were filming a movie of his life's vision. Though quiet off stage, David is a generous soul open to giving the key to whomever is curious".
David was the former lead singer of the popular San Francisco based, original Rock & Roll band- The Death Valley Gypsies.
Their nostalgic 70's boho-glam rock vibe complete with show models has been kicking ass on stages from south coast to Sac. Check out their shows. It can get extreme.
