​Inspired by early art rock, jazz fusion and R&B on the radio, David Tewksbury's voice and songwriting brings rock's intensity and soul's intimacy to lyrics that cover the gamut from heartbreak to social justice. Van Morrison, Ben Harper, Amos Lee and Sting are solid influences in his delivery, while his inspiration comes from all corners of the musical prophetical poetical world.
