New Folk singer songwriter David Ashman began his musical journey at
age 6 when he received his first guitar. Throughout the next 10 years, he
trained with various local musicians and studied the styles of Jimmy Page,
Paul Simon, and Joni Mitchell.
In the 1980's, David was lead guitarist in the band Exodus and toured
throughout New York and Pennsylvania with the band Relentless. During
this time, he also enhanced his songwriting skills through coursework at
the Hochstein School of Music in Rochester, New York USA.
In 1990, David took up permanent residence in Baltimore, Maryland. His
artistry moved toward writing and recording acoustic music with 6 and
12-string guitars, and released his debut CD "Silent Smile" in March 2002.
His folk music lyrics have been described as ranging from "thought
provoking" to "whimsical and sentimental". Recent projects include work
with Billy Kemp (Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers) and Dede
Today, David continues to play in and around the Mid-Atlantic region of the
