The son of an Alabama sharecropper, David grew up a few blocks from Tuxedo Junction. He honed his craft onstage with legendary blues artists Big Joe Turner, Jimmy T99 Nelson and Miss Lavelle White, and his highly original lyrics reflect a lifetime of keen observation and authentic experience. In time-honored fashion, he uses the blues form to comment on current conditions in songs like “We’re All Sharecroppers Now.”
From the first few notes of his opening number, people can tell that he’s the real thing, and that everything is really going to be all right.
