Growing up in Humble, Texas with an abusive, alcoholic father, David found solace in playing the piano.
A child prodigy he began touring as a concert pianist at age of ten. At age 15 he won a nationwide talent show & toured England, Germany, France, Switzerland and Holland. When he was sixteen, he was the featured soloist with the Houston Symphony, performing the difficult Khachaturian Piano Concerto, 45 minutes in length under the direction of renowned conductor, Andre Previn.
David received a full scholarship to study at the famous Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland. It was there that he fully surrendered his life to Christ. He found his goals changing from his intended career as a classical pianist as he began to pen songs of his relationship with the Lord and sing them.
He has released so far 14 albums since 1976 some of them mixing pop music with classical music to great effect.
