He has also been recognized internationally for his ambient guitar work through radio and other media outlets.
Preston’s first ambient music release, "BE" quickly gained the attention of famed film composer and ambient innovator Robert Rich, who called the work "Thoughtful, never facile." After gaining national radio play through NPR and international radio syndication through Radio Despi (Spain) and Echoes (USA), "BE" debuted in September 2008 at 91 on the New Age Reporter Charts. The following month, after con-tinued heavy rotation on an increasing amount of radio stations and syndicated shows, "BE" shot up the charts to 66.
In 2008, after Tennman/Interscope recording artist Matt Morris asked Preston to join his band, Morris and Preston began shaping "BE-JOY" (third track from "BE") from an ambient soundscape, into a melodic, pulse driven POP song. Co-produced by Justin Timberlake, "Just Before The Morning" (Ninth track from "When Everything Breaks Open") carries charting promise and marks the beginning of a writing friendship. Look for Dave Preston's charting albums "BE", "The Day", and coming soon "Soundtrack For Motion", as well as Matt Morris' live show and chart-topping record, "When Everything Breaks Open".
