Growing up, music has been a huge part of David’s life.  His first public performance was at the age of 2 singing with his Great Grandfather at a Gospel church.  He continued singing in choirs at church and at family reunions singing with the family band.

      His music inspiration at a young age came from a variety of genres.  From George Strait & Garth Brooks to Lynyrd Skynyrd & Rush.  At the age of 12 he wanted a drum set.  Making a deal with his parents he took band at school and learned the basics on a snare drum.   After nine months he got that drum set.  Sitting for hours every day at that set he learned hundreds of songs.  Getting together with some friends he formed a band.  Their first public gig was the high school talent show.  They rocked the stage.  That was the start of David singing behind the drums. He has played with several bands since, always amazing the crowd with singing and playing the drums. Thinking that playing the drums was not enough he decided to pick up a guitar and leaned to play it using a Youtube video.  He never misses a chance to learn a new song and play it for whoever will listen. 

 

     One weekend playing a gig with a band, he caught the eye and ear of a representative from a record company.  He was offered an audition with the owner of the record company.  He though “What the heck, what do I have to lose?”  That audition was with Jack Gale of Playback Records.  One month after signing with Playback Records David recorded his first album in Nashville, and is now awaiting his first single, "Sunday Morning Girl," to release to radio.  David still has his day job as a commercial parts salesman and is in the process of forming the David Carter Band.
