David recently moved to Los Angeles and has begun working with various rock, pop, jazz, and gospel bands as he continues to expand his musical repertoire. Playing funky harmonies, beautiful scales, custom sounds and lead lines are only second nature to. Technical skills are one thing but finding a player that has the ear to write new parts over specific melody lines is a much harder task.
