Percussive Acoustic - EP

by David Greenham

Is it a guitar? It is it a drum? No, it's David Greenham! Percussive "strum-drumming" alongside crisp vocals make for a rhythmic and full solo sound. No loops, no pedals, just the fingerstyle-future of what one guitar can do as David sings his heart out.

Album Notes
"Not only can he write and sing some rad lyrics, this man can also play a guitar and bring in some mad drum beats by using a ring on his thumb finger and the neck of his guitar. It is something that you just have to witness for yourself..." ~ Fanbase Music Magazine

The city of Durban, South Africa has produced some rather unique musicians; add David Greenham to that list. A mix of fingerstyle guitar-work and other percussive methods allowed him to be a true one-man-band without any help from laptops or loops. His weapons of choice? A Cole Clark Fat Lady guitar and a host of rings and bracelets to literally beat the guitar as he picks and strums away. It's quite a spectacle to see, but the sound is both easy on the ears and energizing, holding a rhythmic momentum of its own.

Drawing inspiration from his life and his love, David's lyrics are injected with an absolute emotional honesty as he states, "Metaphors make my music universal and I'd hate to waste a magnificent melody on a meaningless message."

Somewhere between his inspirations from rock and rave, the solo-acoustic result maintains energies and influences from these genres. The 'science' of half-tempo drops and dance music build-ups all subtly find their way into what his "percussive strum-drumming" can convey.

"I want acoustic music to evolve. This is the energy I feel it needs."
