David Knight is an exciting and gifted new artist on the Australian music scene. Since age 11, David has been studying the guitar in all its forms. Now 19 and sitting somewhere between roots, folk and virtuoso, David has developed a unique style and method of performing with the instrument that is bound to see him become one of this country’s finest and most respected guitarists. He is already a regular performer on Foxtel’s ‘Guitar Gods and Masterpieces’ program… He is the youngest artist to be featured on the show. Turning professional while still in high school, David began touring nationally, performing in Australia’s best known music venues including The Rails in Byron Bay, Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club and Adelaide’s legendary ‘Gov’. During these tours, Knight performed on stage with blues legends Lloyd Spiegel and Geoff Achison to name a few and supported award winning artists like Daniel Champagne and Shaun Kirk. Festival appearances include The Queenscliff Music Festival, The Australian Blues Music Festival, Moomba festival as well as a series of local festivals in Melbourne. In 2010, David released his debut CD. The self-titled album featured 12 original tracks and received airplay on Australian community radio. A follow up CD is in the mix and planned for a release mid-2012. ‘David has the talent and attitude to no doubt see him become one of this country’s leading guitar players.’ Lloyd Spiegel – Premier endorsee for Cole Clark guitars. ‘David is a shy little dude, but he speaks through his guitar with delicacy and enthusiasm. His evident determination and talent is the key to a long and fruitful career to come.’ Shaun Kirk – Award winning roots artist
