guitar work...Skin tight rhythm and horn sections."
Jeff Calvin, Blues Revue Magazine

Recording Artist Biography
David Hull was born and raised in San Jose, CA, and started out in music before he could say "mama". His dad Milton, who played tenor saxophone for Larry Graham and T-Bone Walker all over the Bay Area, passed the gift of blues to his son. With the sounds of Jimmy Smith, Ray Charles and many other jazz greats always on the record player, David's musical footprints were cast. When he was ten, his dad gave him a Fender Telecaster and a Fender Princeton Reverb Amplifier. He still plays his 1972 Fender Tele to this day!
After high school, David began taking his music very seriously and started writing his own songs and performing around the San Francisco Bay area, playing in a number of successful local rock and blues bands. But Dave's desire to know more about the roots of the Stevie Ray Vaughan and T-Bone Walker sound that he liked so well led him to Austin, playing solid Texas blues and honing his guitar and singing skills in more Austin clubs than he can recall. In the late 90's, David returned home and formed The David Hull Band, where the band is currently playing to enthusiastic audiences in the San Francisco Bay area.
David is a gifted singer/songwriter with a strong, soulful voice and a burning guitar playing style that incorporates all the chops he has honed in Texas and California. Under David's direction, the band, with the very talented drummer Scott LaMantia, bassist 'Philly' Bill Weir, Mike Dugan, and keyboard phenom James 'Mike' Day, recorded their new CD 'Out Of The Blue' that is currently available at cdbaby and slated for national release by TopCat Records in 2005.
David's philosophy on life mimics his musical style - "keep the good times rollin' along any way you can!" With new songs, a new CD and the talented backing of Scott, Bill and Mikey, the David Hull Band is rolling ahead full steam!
