David Franklin

David Franklin has been on a musical journey for more than forty years. A musician from age nine, he vowed to never let a day of his life go by without playing an instrument: a commitment he still keeps to this day. He supported himself in college as a drummer and later became a keyboardist in a New York City rock band, playing such clubs as CBGB’s.

In 1990, he walked across the country with a group of people inspired to bring awareness to environmental issues; he carried his guitar along the way and performed from Santa Monica pier to the base of the Statue of Liberty. Eventually settling in California, he became a husband, parent and psychotherapist while releasing three albums as a singer-songwriter.

David’s music comes from the heart and from a deep desire to communicate. He believes that music is about play, healing and ultimately, connection.

Playing With Shadows was his 7th studio album. Recorded with bass virtuoso Michael Manring, this instrumental album merges David’s sensitivity on piano and guitar with Manring’s expressive bass. It finds him reaching new musical and compositional depths while inviting us to connect sonically to our deepest selves.

Songs of Potential Embrace is his 8th album and was released in March, 2017.
