David King

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.
