David started playing guitar at the age of thirteen. Drums, bass, piano, xylophone and harmonica followed shortly after. He was heavily inspired by a blues CD his dad bought in Germany entitled "Blues Giants Vol. 2", a compilation of blues songs from John Lee Hooker, Lightnin' Hopkins, BB King, Etta James, Memphis Slim, and the alike. David says, “It was magic. That CD with those songs was like having an invitation letter to Hogwarts. Not only the music was captivating and enchanting, they were singing in this amazing language, and they lived in this distant part of the world that I've only seen on television.”
