David Williams is an Emmy winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who plays a variety of string instruments: gypsy jazz guitar, violin, mandolin (and he studied with the great Jethro Burns). His musical influences include everything from gypsy jazz to delta blues to bluegrass and folk. As a singer-songwriter, he is known for his way with words and melodies, which conjure up the American musical landscape. His songs and stories touch on everything from the difficulties of love to the people and places along old Route 66, or a carnival from his childhood, or swing tunes reminiscent of Tin-Pan-Alley—in a wide range of CDs released over the last 30 years.
David has also spent decades studying the passionate guitar work of the famed gypsy swing instrumentalist, Django Reinhardt, and his band, DAVELLIE, specializes in this infectious music from the 1930s. In the past, David has also recorded and performed with people such as Greg Brown, and he also studied and performed with the great mandolinist Jethro Burns, of Homer and Jethro fame. In addition, David has played at many of the large folk music festivals in North America, such as Vancouver and Winnipeg, where he has been recognized as both a songwriter and instrumentalist.
David is also a working cartoonist, has published a number of children’s books with Alfred A. Knopf, fiction with Ghost Road Press, as well as short stories and poems, and a book on neuroscience THE TRICKSTER BRAIN. He holds a Ph.D. in English, and he has been a writer in residence at a number of colleges and universities in the US in Writing. He has also written and recorded ALA and NAPPA award-winning albums for children. http://store.cdbaby.com/cd/davidwilliams16 http://danjo53.wixsite.com/davellie
