From soft and mellow to fiery and passionate, the music of David Gallegos is an all acoustic, instrumental latin new age / nuevo flamenco style. Geared towards stage and theater, private and corporate parties, wine bars, bistros, and upscale restaurants as great background ambiance as a solo artist or as a full show experience with his entire band.
The band has been together and performaning since late 2005, but between each musician, everyone has had many years of experience performing in various styles of bands.
David, having picked up the guitar at the age of 13, has been playing well over 23 years now. Originally playing rock and metal for the greater portion of his career, David eventually began listening to and writing music with a softer, more emotional touch. In 2003, he decided to branch off from the progressive metal writing with his band, Power of Omens, and begin work on his first full-length latin new age CD. Already a 12 year veteran to the music industry, with 2 internationally released CDs, contribution to a Queensryche tribute CD, and as a guest artist on one of Sony Recording Tejano Artists, Eddie Gonzales’ CD, David took his experience and decided to write, record, design, and release his CD completely on his own. After a year of hard work, the CD, ‘Mis Recuerdos’ was finally self-released in the Fall / Winter of 2004.
Now with a completed CD, and the desire to begin showcasing his music, David became a member of BMI in 2005, and decided to move from his home in San Antonio to Dallas, where he felt he would have better opportunities playing out and getting recognition for his music.
Since the beginning of 2006, the band has aggressively begun to play out. From wine bars and bistros to restaurants and festivals. As regulars at The Broadway Bistro in Carrollton, Xouba Lounge in Arlington, Pearl at Commerce and Rouge Restaurant in Dallas, to the Morton Meyerson Symphony Hall’s Hispanic Festival in Dallas’ beautiful art district and Sundance Square in Ft. Worth. The band continues working hard and is constantly looking for new bookings.
Now, after four long years, David has finally released his follow up CD, Mi Rosa Blanca. Inspired by love and passion, this CD combines traditional flamenco rhythms with serene new age melodies to create an ambient soundscape with a Latin flare.
With this new CD in pocket, there is so much in store for David and his band… so keep a look out for him, and always check his websites for upcoming events and happenings.
