URBAN/R&B: R&B Pop Crossover, GOSPEL: Contemporary Gospel
King David is one of the most lyrical and bilingual soulful producer/songwriter/player to have emerged from the US in recent years. Loved for his smooth, Layed-Back, funky melodic playing and pure silky tone of voice, he has risen to prominence on the American Hip-Hip Hop/R&B Gospel Crossover scene with his new debut album, "Who Will I Trust". He is now a regular at Mesa, AZ prestigious War Room Ministries, the worship leader at Faith on Fire Church, and many other areas in the valley of Phoenix, AZ and nationwide and both he and his production are in great demand.
His musical roots besides old school 60’s – 80’s music, jazz and heavy influence of Accapella Christian music also include funk and groove orientated music. This has lead to commercial work with jazz guitarist Maurice Johnson with After 5 Jazz, radio & TV networks, and dealings with Destiny Child producer Rodney Jerkins, among many others. This diversity has enriched his musical outlook and is evident in his style of playing and composing, in more than 8 languages whilst never compromising the authenticity of the Hip-Hop/R&B/Rap Anointed Gospel Crossover.
King David studied at Langston University and was first taken under the guided wing of Dr. William B. Garcia, Instructor of Music. However, the defining musical inspiration came from playing guitar alongside Maurice Johnson in the studios of his Studio, Layed Back Productions in Oklahoma City, OK. King David’s move to Arizona for a contemplating record deal with Jive turned out for the best.
He has performed in Arizona top schools, churches, clubs and festivals. With female artist, and now present wife, Michelle Williams at his side, this dynamic Husband and Wife Duo have played in most of the Maricopa Colleges international festivals (2004 – present) including Phoenix, New York and even Ethiopia (East Africa). The group they formed, ‘King & Queen David’ or ‘El Rey & La Reyna’, also performed in various television shows and recorded for television (Channel 12 News) and radio.
His debut Spanish CD, "Musica De Alma Latina" has won much critical acclaim, both at home and worldwide abroad. This year the group is performing at the Phoenix Ampatheatre in January as special guest for the War Room New Year’s Bash Festival in January 2007 and are planning the Layed Back West 2 Midwest Tour for 2007, touring the US from Cali to Oklahoma. Their purpose is the spread the message of Jesus Christ through their music, video, and artists on the label.
