Album Notes
Winner of the 2013 Fretboard Festival Performance Contest and runner up at the 2013 Canadian Guitar Festival, Fingerstyle guitarist David Youngman has been sharing his instrumental music around the country for over 15 years. Along with a performance degree David has recorded 5 albums including his most recent solo album, Alive. Youngman is also a guitar instructor at Spring Arbor University.

Youngman studied both Classical and Jazz guitar with Larry Williams at Spring Arbor University. After getting his degree he studied with prestigious guitar educators and performers Brian Roberts, John Stropes, and Rene Izquierdo. While getting formal training, the guitarist also spent years outside the academic world to explore other genres and developed his Jazzgrass style with the group Afterthought. The group performed around the Midwest for three years and recorded two albums.

Like his main influence Bela Fleck, Youngman has been intrigued by so many styles that his Folk Fingerstyle music tends to include elements of Jazz, Bluegrass, Pop, Celtic, Funk, and Classical genres. He has performed his blend of traditional and contemporary music at events that include the Lansing Jazz Festival, Grand Rapids Art Festival, and the Crosby Festival of the Arts in Toledo as well as numerous community concert series, churches, and more. After a concert at Ionia First United Methodist Church right after the release of the Alive album, Pastor Larry Brown commented, “David has a sensitive heart and his music flows directly from it.”
