He performs solo to backing tracks programmed and produced by the composer himself creating a very melodic and relaxed vibe. If you and your guests are looking for something a little different then David's music could be right up your street. David has been playing guitar since he was 8 but it became a serious concern when, in his teens he started going to gigs at Glasgow's legendary venue The Apollo in the early eighties witnessing guitar hero's galore including Alex Lifeson, Angus Young, and Andy Summers. David has consumed all things guitar ever since including the Jazz genius of Martin Taylor and Pat Metheny and effects influenced players such as The Edge and Charlie Burchill of Simple Minds and the acoustic work of Tommy Emmanuel and Acoustic Alchemy. Having exhausted all possibilities in various bands he returned to his home studio and gained a degree in Media Music Composition recognized by the Film Music Institute of Los Angeles. David has just completed his debut album of guitar instrumentals encompassing some smooth jazz grooves with a hint of fusion and just for the hell of it the occasional big rock solo to ! The album, “ Strangely Familiar “ is now available from the very fine people of CD Baby - or the equaly fine people of iTunes - please click on the links below.

“This song has a truly nifty feel to it. The drums are laying it down, nice and solid, really steady, and sharp. The guitar work is impeccable. I think it is every guitar player's dream to be able to pull off a piece like this. There is melody, and accuracy, and the guy handles it all like a pro. Overall, this sounds as good as any theme music you hear these days. A really excellent recording. Great job, sir.” Tunesmith from Irving, Texas: This is a review of David's song "Strangely Familiar". This was the first track recorded for this remarkable album of Instrumental Smooth Jazz. Beautiful smooth guitar melodies wrapped in warm ambient keyboards and punctuated by a tight rhythm section. David has consumed all things guitar from an early age. His early influences were created after numerous visits to Glasgow’s legendary venue The Apollo – Mostly rock genius like Alex Lifeson, Angus Young and Andy Summers of The Police. He was then introduced to the Jazz Great Martin Taylor which lead to a passion for Jazz guitar and it's smooth exponents Larry Carlton and Pat Metheny. Acoustic guitar was always involved to and a chance viewing of Acoustic Alchemy on a daytime TV show in the late 80's proved a to be a turning point in David’s development as a player and composer. After exhausting all possibilities in various bands he returned to his home studio to obtain a degree in media composition recognized by the Film Music Institute of Los Angeles. This is David’s debut release and it encompasses all his musical influences to produce a truly unique guitar voice. © http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/davidkingtunes#

"King's round tone and sensitive phrasing is inspired and he elevates the guitar to a near mystical place." - Guitar Player Magazine

You may find this album in the "Smooth Jazz" section of your local record store, but it is not the bland, elevator sound often associated with the genre. Described by cdbaby.com as "Smooth chill-out contemporary instrumental guitar album incoprporating jazz, blues, and pop with ambient overtones and a hint of fusion". There is nothing groundbreaking here, but It's a good album of nine very well played original soulful contemporary instrumentals from this very talented Scottish guitarist. The album has a lot of merit, and the guy's music is well worth hearing. Try and listen to David's "Son Of Strangely" album [All tracks @ 192 Kbps: File size = 56.8 Mb]

ABOUT DAVID KING

I've been playing guitar since I was 8 but it became a serious concern when I started going to gigs at Glasgow's legendary venue The Apollo in the early eighties witnessing guitar hero's galore including Alex Lifeson, Angus Young, and Andy Summers.. I've consumed all things guitar ever since including the jazz genius of Martin Taylor and Pat Metheny and effects influenced players such as The Edge and Charlie Burchill of Simple Minds and the acoustic work of Tommy Emmanuel and Acoustic Alchemy. .. Having exhausted all possibilities in various bands ( i.e bugger all happened !!) I returned to my home studio and gained a degree in Media Music Composition recognized by the Film Music Institute of Los Angeles. .. My debut album "Strangely Familiar" was released in 2007. Its an album of guitar instrumentals encompassing some smooth jazz grooves with a hint of fusion and just for the hell of it the occasional big rock solo to ! .. I released my second album Son of Strangely in September 09. In a slight departure , it incorporates a more urban and dance feel. .. The albums are both available from the very fine people of CD Baby - or the equaly fine people of iTunes - please click on the links across. If you are interested in booking me for gigs or house concerts, please send me a message... Thanks for dropping by. . . My earliest influences were all the rock guitar legends of the time. Alex Lifeson will always be numero uno but Angus Young, Michael Schenker, Eddie Van Halen and Andy Summers were always regulars on the turntable. Remember them ?? Turntables I mean !!..I saw Pat Metheny on a late night TV show - would have been around the days of the Travels album - I had never heard anybody make the guitar sound so beautiful. Martin Taylor also blew me away to with his astonishing technique... Away from guitar players, I have always loved The Blue Nile - such perfect atmosphere from everything they ever produced... Acoustic Alchemy have been a huge influence on my writing since I saw them in the late 80's on another TV show - TV was great in those days obviously !!.. I continue to be influenced on a daily basis most notably by John Mayer, Tommy Emmanuel, Robben Ford, Larry Carlton - the list is endless.
