Alexi David

Hola, and welcome to my website.

My name is Alexi David, and I'm a Composer/Double Bassist/Human. It's been and continues to be, an interesting journey. So here goes...

I was born in Cyprus, and raised in Park Slope, Brooklyn, before the evil stroller Yuppies descended. I got an electric bass when I was ten. The school girls noticed me. So I continued playing. Often they still notice. I had a stunted growth as a young musician due to an interim career as a drug addict, mostly due to undiagnosed “Attention-Deficit Disorder.” After spending 2 years in rehab at Ayia Skepi in Cyprus, I resumed playing Double Bass (after a hiatus of years) and began performing around the island, debuting my mixture of Jazz and Rembetika music. ...

Alexi is one of the most serious musicians I've met in the last decade. He pulls no punches, his compassion for people and music inspires me. I like his uncompromising spirit and the soul he plays with. Oh yea, Alexi has something special and you can hear life in his music. You can hear the city streets world wide, along with the stink of the subways and the stink of the human race. He transcends all that ! His song is universal and never ending. He's one of my favorites. Can you tell? He'll be around for decades long after the self proclaimed genius types are gone and forgotten. Why? HE LOVES MUSIC AND HE CAN PLAY. Listen for him. Hire him and know he is one of the real ones.


In my years of association with Alexi David, I have seen how he transforms his instrument and music into a joyful experience for all who are within earshot. His hard work and dedication assure me that he will continue well into the future on a path toward enlightening listeners! Keep up the good work!


.....a fine, professional-caliber bassist and an intriguing composer. He also has an encyclopedic knowledge of jazz history....(a) life experience that makes him wise beyond his years....Highest recommendation.
