About
Combining intricate lyricism, soaring vocals, and a loop station; David Unsworth creates personal, thought provoking music that still gives listeners a reason to dance.
David Unsworth is a 22-year-old singer-songwriter based out of Edmonton, Alberta. David has played at festivals such as: the Canmore Folk Festival, Edmonton International Fringe Festival and Edmonton's Found Festival. He is also an official busker at Edmonton's City Market Downtown. His debut EP: Wait was recorded and released in early 2015 and has been played on local radio stations CKUA and CJSR. Currently, David is busking, gigging and going to open mics around Edmonton, and has recently completed his Bachelor's in Jazz and Contemporary Music at Macewan University. David's musical journey began in choral music. From a young age David sang in a number of children's and youth choirs, slowly gaining an appreciation for choral music, while simultaneously marveling in more contemporary artists of the late 20th century like Queen and Midnight Oil. After several years of guitar lessons David turned his attention to composition, and began writing songs in 2013. Soon David started playing at open mics and busking at local farmers markets, learning to use a loop pedal in live situations to create a full band sound with just vocals and a guitar. As his performances began to develop their own style, so did David's songwriting, taking and blending Alternative Rock with Folk and Pop music.
