"The songs must be sung, or
they die", and so goes the tradition. They must be sung by the people who love and hold them dear; who are willing
to create them, learn them, teach them, use them, and pass them on.
It’s ironic that the shear difficulty of
breaking into the mass media keeps artists and musicians like David Christian underground and close to the source of their
music; the people.
People who go to folk festivals and small concert
halls and bars, libraries, book stores, coffee houses and other out of the way venues (and who go to listen) are the people
who keep independent musicians and artists alive. Theirs’ is the music of the people. It is theirs because they participate
in its survival. These are the "folk" in folk music. This is the audience to whom David’s unique blend of traditional
folk, country, pop and humor will appeal.
David’s music is about people. From the technical
aspects to the choice of material, everything in his approach reaches inward to uncover feelings from loneliness to hope.
His sometimes haunting simplicity is filled with poetry and music, compelling to anyone who experiences life with any level
David’s music spans over forty years
of personal/professional experience. In those forty something years David has performed on almost every "folk" stage in America,
Canada and in Europe. He has shared those stages with the likes of Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, John Prine , Steve Goodman,
Jack Tottle, Marshall Dodge, Utah P. Phillips Bill Stains , Bill Morrissy, Tom Paxton and Jerry Jeff Walker.
