David Luning

Just when we began to worry again about who is going to pick up the slack, as so many of the Folk/Americana greats start really slowing down or just saying goodbye; some young whippersnapper shows up saying, “If you just give me some room to wail, I will show you the music will live on.”  Meet David Luning.  He is coming to Música Del Río to help us understand how the music will continue.

A Sonoma County-based singer/ songwriter, David is part of the new generation of indie musicians who blur the genre lines of Americana/Alternative Country, Folk and Blues. With insights beyond his years, David’s story-telling songwriting and warm, rich voice will captivate us and draw us into a musical world both familiar and new.  We were previously enthralled by young talents such as The Novelists and Salty Suites.  David Luning now takes us further down this new trail.

Joining David at Música Del Río will be Ben Dubin on upright bass.  Ben is a regular member of David’s larger club band.  Along with bass, Ben will join David on vocal harmonies and harmonica.

Across the country on Public Radio stations, like our own KCBX, David’s debut album Just Drop on By was considered by many to be the “best Americana Music album of the year”.  The best comment came from Johnny Bazanno, with Bay Area NPR station KRCB.  “I’ve heard the future of Americana music and it’s David Luning.”  David writes, records, and performs all of his original songs.  We will get David’s picture of life in our living room for his first visit to Música Del Río.

In 2013 David auditioned for American Idol.  Over 75,000 artists auditioned that year and he made the cut.  18 million people worldwide watched and listened to this new voice in folk music on American Idol in January 2014.  Keith Urban says, David presents “Staunch originality, no one’s doing what you do…no one.”  Join us on May 9th for our private audience with this amazing look into the future of acoustic music in America.
