An unquestionably talented musician, award-winning singer/songwriter David Lynch continues to write and perform music that people gravitate to, simply because he writes about things people can relate to, and he sings purely from his soul. Lynch has pioneered what has been called “California Bluegrusion,” a fusion of musical styles built on the foundation of blues and folk, with the tranquil spirit of the acoustic coastal sound. California Bluegrusion has been infused into every aspect of his music, from the raw attack of the acoustic guitar, to the heartfelt sound that makes it feel as if he’s singing only for you, the listener.

Lynch treks the musical road never traveled, with his journey giving rise to his prior three albums, “David Lynch,” “Good Wood,” and “Dozen,” as well his newest album release, “I Can See Sound.”  Music has been an integral part of David’s life since his childhood. Born in Alhambra, California, David started writing his first songs in                  the fifth grade, and since then his passion for music and songwriting has continued to flourish.  A natural born musician, Lynch is a self-taught guitar player, and his lyrics have been inspired by his coastal Southern California hometown, his many and varied life experiences, and the cultural differences that set us apart and tie us to one another.

    Throughout this journey, David has become somewhat of a Renaissance man. Husband and father to three children, he has become a renowned and successful sound editor, winning an Emmy Award and two Golden Reel Awards, as well as being nominated for 10 Emmy Awards and 15 Golden Reel Awards in audio post-production. Lynch found his love for post-production sound editing while attending UC Santa Barbara, where he spent countless hours multi-tracking original songs and overdubbing. This is where his future as a serious musician first took flight.

Lynch has placed in 7 national contests, including 3-time finalist at the Sierra Songwriters Contest in Sonora, California, a 2-time finalist at the Founders Title Folk and Bluegrass Festival in Park City, Utah, and as a finalist at both the Sisters Music Festival in Sisters, Oregon, and the Tumbleweed Music Festival in Richland, Washington.  Lynch went through a phase of entering songwriting contests, and he consistently made it to the finals...

  “I think I was looking for some self assurance about the quality of my work

at that time, and although I am past the songwriting contest part of my career, I

submitted 3 of the unfinished tracks from “I Can See Sound” to the

New Times Music Awards as a bit of a test, and we won honorable mention awards for

both Songwriting and for Blues/R&B, which was gratifying!

In 2009, I stopped in Santa Barbara for the Old Time Fiddlers Convention.

It is a festival I used to attend when I was a student at UCSB and I actually had won a first place singing award years ago for singing an a capella  version of 

“The Farmer’s Cursed Wife.”

I was on my way home from a gig in Los Angeles and on a lark, I entered the competition and used one of my $30 Stellas with dead strings. I ended up

winning a 3rd place award for advanced guitar.”

David has performed at hundreds of venues throughout the U.S.  One year, he spent a month in both Austin and Nashville, on his way to reaching a self-set goal of 100 live performances. One of the venues included the acclaimed Bluebird Café, where he was quickly welcomed into the invitation-only Sunday night rotation.

What’s more, David has played the Tucson Folk Festival twice – on both the Courtyard Stage and Main Stage – as well as other events such as the Live Oak Music Festival, the Green Rockin Festival, the Pozo Springtime Boogie, the California Mid State Fair,                                                             and the San Luis Obispo Garden Festival. Lynch’s live performances have showcased his immense talent, and his light-hearted stories and charisma between tracks have drawn crowds of all ages.

After returning to California, David’s public demand and fan base have steadily climbed. One reason for his recent local success has been a flurry of winery bookings for his band.

“The wine tasting crowd is willing to try new music, and they actually want to hear the lyrics. People are buying all three of my early CDs, after hearing us play only two songs… We recorded “Dozen” as a “live” album because the winery crowds wanted to buy a CD that sounded like what we were playing (guitar, madolin and dobro).”

His music appeals to people of all ages and backgrounds, perhaps because it approaches universal topics with a boldness and irreverence that touches the listener below the surface of culture and demography.   “Mahatma,” the second track on “Dozen,” reached the eighth position on Neil Young’s “Living With War Today” website. The song is a plea to Gandhi for guidance in our troubled war times.  David’s music makes for a balanced exploration of the socially and spiritually relevant aspects and emotions of life. Now with the release of his fourth album, Lynch’s musical range grows even more accessible and at the same time defies attempts to be labeled.

In the end, it is the loyalty of his fans and the continued support of family and friends that keep David inspired and driven.  Lynch is actually picking up momentum.

“After the countless hours I have spent playing guitar and writing, it continues to consume me.” 

He has at least one guitar in almost every room in the house; the dining room alone has six.  At any given time he has 3 new songs floating around trying to finish themselves.  Now heavily into the promoting the new release “I Can See Sound” David will be spending a large portion of 2011 on the road. 

“It’s a busy household and I have a lot going on at home, but I have to get this album out there. I have many new friends to meet.”
