Originally from Hempstead, New York David has spent a number of years as a jazz bassist.   He studied Computer Science at St. John’s University in Jamaica Queens, but during that time he was starting to build his bass playing experience around the greater New York area.  Mainly self-taught, he had the opportunity to study with bassist Cecil McBee.  In his early years he worked with a number of established artist including Talib Qadir, Cecil Bridgewater, Bill Saxton, Billy Mitchell, Kamil Gainer Jones along with the late Walter Davis Jr., Charlie Persip and the one and only Betty Carter.  While touring with Betty Carter he originally played with pianist Khalid Moss and drummer Lewis Nash before eventually playing with pianist Benny Green.  Working with Betty Carter during that period provided him with a wealth of valuable musical knowledge along with a variety of song arrangement ideas. 

He eventually took a long break from his musical career and moved to Atlanta where he now resides.  In more recent years while working with local jazz musicians, his desire to play bass, write and arrange music continued to build.  This led to the creation of CreativeTone and the current album release.  He has written a number of original songs, some of which will be debuted on the upcoming album titled “Back on Track”.   This work is a culmination of his years of playing bass along with life experiences all of which have been captured in the music recorded on the album.
