A Rock N' Roll Icon,David Clerest is not only a songwriter/composer who plays drums, percussion, bass guitar, vocals, acoustic & electric guitars; but he also builds his own accoustic guitars;has traveled the world and considers himself a world citizen.
After departing his three piece band,he started his solo oneman band act in 1990, which is "David Clerest Project".
He often amazes his audience with his incredible ability to sing and play his guitar simultaneuosly, while he maintains his trademark of precise, and complex composer machine programming,coupled by his heavey riffs on bass tracks.
Dedicated to the Raw Sound of Rock N' Roll, he delivers great showmanship on stage.
Revn Kevin,the writer for the Metal Shop Column of Rock City News,wrote the following: "Dave(Clerest) comes in with all his own equipment,and puts on a pretty Rocking good show.I recently caught him at McReds in Van Nuys playing a 40 minute set, backed by a sound track.
Dave sang and shredded his guitar and even controled his own fog and lights.
Dave's shredding skills are excellent,...the music was of the old school metal genre with a couple of covers thrown in for good measure..."
