David Lawrence, has called Colorado home for over a decade. Whether performing solo or with his full band, ‘The Spoonful,’ David brings a unique blend of finger-picking Delta blues, roots-Americana, soulful vocals, and his style of Gypsy-infused jazz guitar. In recent years, David has focused on his original sound & released a debut full length album produced by Banshee Tree frontman Thom LaFond. 'Lean In' received accolades on CPR, Westword Magazine, 303 Magazine, 5280, Rooster Magazine & plays on locals radio all over CO. A poet at heart, David’s original sound combines evocative imagery and storytelling with infectious melodies and rich, layered guitar playing. True to his musical roots, David’s music is raw, gritty, soulful, and full of heart.
"It’s safe to say that David Lawrence works firmly in the genre known as Americana. Mixing Delta blues, roots and his take on Gypsy jazz guitar, Lawrence possesses an intangible quality — maybe it’s personality — that imparts something special to the songs, pushing them beyond the standard Americana fare. On this debut album, “Cupcakes and Cigarettes” is a banger of particular note. “Seeds We Sow," the band’s first single, sprang from Lawrence watching the horrible wildfires burning in the mountains in 2020. There’s a lot going on here, and the lyrics invite listeners to take a deep dive."
