He strongly believes every musician should be involved in drumming and percussion. "It gives you good timing and helps you along the way . . . instruments are all relatives and things that apply to one usually apply to others," says David.
"When I make my albums, I record on the recorder like it was an analog machine. . . my albums are not done in Pro Tools. There is no pitch correction, no cheating, no faking! That is why when I do things I do them the real way, that is why I am the real deal".

Listen to music a few times before you totally
write it off. When radio stations play new songs, it takes a few times before it hits you.
