Performing Songwriter David Noll has been described as a singer with a “beautiful, soul-stirring voice,” “ A professional whose artistry is so wonderfully displayed through lyrics, style and musical emotionalism”. His original compositions have been called “joyful, sensitive, moving, healing and comforting.” His performances regarded as “both inspirational and motivational”.
Born in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1953, David grew up in the nearby small town of Ingleside. He began writing poetry when he was nine years old and playing the piano and guitar in his early teens and soon after began setting his poems to music. For most of his adult life he has made a living as a musician.
He was a featured entertainer at Gallagher’s Restaurant in Corpus Christi from 1977 to 1991 and has also provided music for many community events including United Nations Human Rights Day, Bayfest, Rio Fest, The Art in the Heart Festival, The Corpus Christi Acoustic Music Festival, observances of Martin Luther King’s Birthday and many Bahai Fireside House Concerts and the Baha'i Building the Kingdom Conference
held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2001.
He has written or co-written songs for The Texas State Aquarium, The Corpus Christi Child Abuse Council, The Junior Peace Makers Club and with Dr. Carmen Tafolla, songs for the children’s book, “Baby Coyote and the Old Woman”. He has performed in coffee houses, songwriter’s showcases, colleges, creative writing classes, restaurants and clubs throughout Texas as well as Los Angeles and Nashville.
The title of his CD, Satori Safari is symbolic of his entire life says the songwriter. Satori is a Japanese term for enlightenment and Safari is Swahili for a search or journey. “I’ve always been searching for answers” he says, “I’ve always asked why?”
