I am just a guy who enjoys making music and sharing it with others. I offer everything free of charge because music shouldn't be owned, only shared. If you like it, great. If you don't, oh well, just keep looking there's something for everyone on Soundclick!
Why this name?
David = Hebrew for "Beloved", Mom's idea
Townsend, originally "Townshend", old English for doing something awful to a town, perhaps by my Viking ancestors who invaded Northern England and did some mischief before settling in.
Do you play live?
I rarely perform in public anymore, preferring the quiet confines of my home studio. But on those rare occasions when I do get out onto a stage again, it's a lot of fun! Much more fun than it was when I earned my living that way.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
MP3 has lowered expectations of quality, especially among younger listeners who have grown up with MP3 and have accepted it as good enough. My hope is that when broadband internet access has become ubiquitous, standards will raised again.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
No.
Band History:
I started playing in bands in 1965 as a teenager in Nebraska, later making it a full-time profession in the Pacific Northwest until maturity, road weariness and hatred of disco finally overtook me in the 80's.

I abandoned music entirely, so as to devote my full attention to the pursuit of the American Dream. I proceeded to acquire the big house, the new cars, all the fun toys -- and, ultimately the grand prize: a heart attack.

After a major readjustment of priorities I decided it was time to make music again. It has since become my passion.

My next step is retirement. When that happens, I intend to build a recording studio in Pangasinan province, in the Philippines, my adopted second home. There I plan to live out the rest of my days happily making music under the mango trees.
