David Upton is a vocalist, songwriter, and musician with a dedicated heart that every listener can feel when he sings. David hopes to provide different styles of music with life-changing lyrics. Regardless of genre, David seeks to bring his audience into a thought-provoking heartfelt experience, rather than just a show.
As an emerging contemporary independent artist, David displays strong, unapologetic musical tips of the hat to a wide variety of musical styles such as Creed, 3 Doors Down, Gavin Degraw and Daughtry as he wraps his faith-inspired message in a common sounding yet pleasing brand of gritty & melody driven contemporary adult rock. All in all, he hopes to bring solid and relevant recordings that won’t disappoint the rocker, yet still gives the spiritually hungry a full dose of encouragement and inspiration.
In between writing, recording and producing music, David spent 10 years serving as worship pastor for Saddleback Church’s rock n roll venue, “Overdrive” in Southern California. David is married to Sabrina, for 22 years and has two amazing boys. He now serves as Worship Pastor for Sunridge Community Church in Temecula, CA.
