New Folk singer songwriter David Ashman began his musical journey at
age 6 when he received his first guitar. Throughout the next 10 years, he
trained with various local musicians and studied the styles of Jimmy Page,
Paul Simon, and Joni Mitchell.
In the 1980's, David was lead guitarist in the band Exodus and toured
throughout New York and Pennsylvania with the band Relentless. During
this time, he also enhanced his songwriting skills through coursework at
the Hochstein School of Music in Rochester, New York USA.
In 1990, after moving to Maryland, his artistry moved toward writing and
recording acoustic music with 6 and 12-string guitars, and released his
debut CD "Silent Smile" in March 2002. His folk music lyrics have been
described as ranging from "thought provoking" to "whimsical and
sentimental". Projects also included work with Billy Kemp (Tommy Conwell
and the Young Rumblers) and Dede Wyland.
David performed on the Just Plain Folks Northeast Tour 2002, and he
collaborates with fellow contemporary folk rock bands and musicians. His
music receives airplay on WRNR 103.1 radio broadcasting from Annapolis,
Maryland. He currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
