David Tewksbury started songwriting shortly after learning guitar at age 19. He describes his music as locally-grown soulful indie folk. Locally-grown because he's lived here since age 6, and is profoundly shaped Charlottesville's brilliantly diverse songwriting community. Soulful because of his love for the emotional honesty of blues, jazz and gospel and R & B. Indie because he's not aiming for commercial record label formulas. Folk both because the music is acoustic and deals with deeply human stories and social justice.  His music has been described as groovy and uplifting, though many songs touch on some darker subjects, more often through a lens of hope. 

One listener wrote after hearing David play:

    “Your music, words and vocals perfectly combine to allow us no choice but to walk, breathe and explore in the middle of your stories. Thanks for the lift. And thanks for sharing your gift.”   - E. Stevens
