Having begun training in classical piano at the age of 3, as well as violin and guitar, music has always been an integral aspect of David's life. His musical grounding in classical music as well as heavy metal amongst numerous other new age genres has allowed him to marry what many would have thought were the unreconcilable extremes of music, culminating in his unique brand of music which he refers to as "classic music heavy metal". His music readily combines the fastest double-time percussion and heaviest guitar riffs akin to speed, power and death metal with the delicate beauty of arpeggiated broken chords and flourishes reminiscent of Chopin's nocturnes and Beethoven's piano sonatas. Through his music, David hopes to touch the hearts of others, to inspire them to seek the light, even during the darkest and emptiest of times.
After commencing his solo music project "yk" in 2011, David went on to win the Myspace Band Competition in the same year for which he was awarded the honor of designing and producing a Sennheiser microphone. His 2 songs "To the Sky" and "Lone Light", both topped the Australian Myspace Music charts, the latter for 2 weeks. In 2012, his latest composition "Last Dance", was judged fifth in the International Songs Alive Competition. To date, over 50 000 people from more than 55 countries around the world have showed their support for David's music.
All of David's music is composed, recorded, and produced by the musician himself. During live performances, he readily switches between the piano, violin, and guitar, whilst prerecorded tracks are relied upon for the remaining instruments.
