Through his work with 16 Horsepower, Wovenhand, and as a solo artist, David has become known as a powerful storyteller. For this performance he will be performing songs from throughout his lifelong catalogue of work. With themes of faith, love, and struggle, his musical wares are redolent of traditional storytelling, and steeped in the lessons of his own personal journeys.

Her lyrics are based on her own life and manage to radiate both vulnerability and strength. The music fluctuates between indie, pop, Americana and singer-songwriter.
