Music Mission & Vision:

 

“My goal is to develop, lead, and perform exciting and thoughtful concerts,
in a collaborative spirit,
with fellow Grammy nominated and award-winning artists
who have a shared vision to create“Authentic music”
that has thoughtful lyrics and quality sounds that incorporate global instruments.
 
Let’s collaborate to impact people, to increase dialogue and action for
improved personal health for mind, body, and spirit.
As influential media leaders, who are closely watched and emulated, 
let’s strive to go deeper than our external ‘image and persona” to model and inspire
healthy emotional and physical habits. 

Healthy people can have great impact on both their local and
global communities as
global citizens
in the new millennium”
…David Gab


Global Appeal across audiences, ages, and countries for Rock-N-Roll performance artist who is most comfortable when and born to be entertaining people; live on stage and inTV/film. Experience living and performing across cultures, appealing to variety of ages, in USA, Europe, and AsiaPac. I see a future being a full-time live entertainer, delivering quality performances, doing Global Tours, with a band of fellow rock musicians, who are committed, like me, to deliver innovative Rock-N-Roll music, performing my original compositions. Enjoy being the lead soloist and master guitarist playing various electric, acoustic, and bass guitars from my personal collection.

Provocative Lyrics that stimulate the creation of online global social communities, through social media with a shared purpose to connect people with a passion for global social justice. It’s the goal of my writing to result in attention grabbing, yet quality music, with authentic sounds and truth-telling lyrics that have the potential to have a profound impact on people’s conversations, globally shared, through social media, live concerts, and TV/film. We can create global communities resulting in inspiring people to come together, across cultures, to solve complex problems of homelessness, political and civil unrest, lack of education, and poverty
Collaborative spirit to include fellow musicians, new to the LA music industry, to support and promote them, in a collegiate manner. Let’s bring together highly artistic and influential musicians to build, support, and create inspirational educational institutions to develop talented musicians who will be leaders in the future. Music does and will continue to inspire children of future generations, so let’s inspire them to be healthy people who are humane and socially just. This vision is inspired by my personal belief that positive lyrics, creative sounds, and authentic creation of new music using Rock-N-Roll as my inspiration and style, can result in highly influential music performed live and available online.
Clear Global Vision to inspire “Healthy Music and Healthy Thinking”. Hope to bring people together, across cultures, who are inspired to create and share “Healthy Music” that is organic, truthful, which stimulates critical “Healthy thinking” for increased awareness and understanding of the importance of how living in a truly post-modern global community, we can be more thoughtful about how we care for each other, contributing to peace, health, wholeness, and overall healthy living. Overall vision to create talk about how we can generously and selflessly care for one other recognizing the meaning of being “Human” and not just “Beings”.
