POET, AND SONG WRITER
David Christian is one of America's best
kept secrets and has (for the past thirty years) been hiding out with some of the counties most famous unknown folksingers,
Song Writers and story tellers. With a touch of nostalgia for the late 60s, early 70s and 80s, David Christian's
rhythmic guitar playing and gentle and tasteful finger picking style combined with pleasant (if somewhat gravely) vocal arrangements
reminiscent of the old troubadours like Woody Guthrie, Cisco Houston and even an older and wiser Bob Dylan.
David often describes his music as a cross between "Neo-Traditional Country and "Americana" and Folk".
(American Primitive). David also collects and performs the songs of Hank Williams, George Jones, Willy Nelson and Waylon Jennings,
Levon Helm, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Chris LeDoux and many other old time singer/song writers. David's original
songs are often in the earthy, honest and straight forward style of some of his favorite singer/songwriters: John Prine, Blase
Foley, Hates Carll, Tom Russell, Joe Ely, Robert Earl Keen, Rambling Jack Elliott, U. Utah Phillips, Billy Joe Shaver,
Buddy Miller, Guy Clark, Steve Earl, and Townes Van Zadt. His extensive repertoire of over 800 songs including songs from the above mentioned songwriters and performers also includes original
and traditional music plus a pinch of the pop, rock and country of the Eagles, Eric Claptom,
Jimmy Buffett, Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Garth Brooks, The Grateful
Dead, Van Morrison and other modern and traditional word‑smiths and musicians.
If you crave and love straight forward good original, as well as tastefully arranged familiar music, than you will
be pleasantly surprised and happily rewarded spending an evening with song writer, poet and recording artist, David Christian.
