“This song has a truly nifty feel to it. The drums are laying it down, nice and solid, really steady, and sharp. The guitar work is impeccable. I think it is every guitar player's dream to be able to pull off a piece like this. There is melody, and accuracy, and the guy handles it all like a pro. Overall, this sounds as good as any theme music you hear these days. A really excellent recording. Great job, sir.”

This is a review of David's song "Strangely Familiar". This was the first track recorded for this remarkable album of Instrumental Smooth Jazz.
Beautiful smooth guitar melodies wrapped in warm ambient keyboards and punctuated by a tight rhythm section.
David has consumed all things guitar from an early age. His early influences were created after numerous visits to Glasgow’s legendary venue The Apollo – Mostly rock genius like Alex Lifeson, Angus Young and Andy Summers of The Police.
He was then introduced to the Jazz Great Martin Taylor which lead to a passion for Jazz guitar and it's smooth exponents Larry Carlton and Pat Metheny. Acoustic guitar was always involved to and a chance viewing of Acoustic Alchemy on a daytime TV show in the late 80's proved a to be a turning point in David’s development as a player and composer.
After exhausting all possibilities in various bands he returned to his home studio to obtain a degree in media composition recognized by the Film Music Institute of Los Angeles.
This is David’s debut release and it encompasses all his musical influences to produce a truly unique guitar voice.
