David Gallegos

From soft and mellow to fiery and passionate, the music of David Gallegos is an all acoustic, instrumental latin new age / nuevo flamenco style. David, having picked up the guitar at the age of 13, has been playing well over 27 years now. Originally playing rock and metal for the greater portion of his career, David eventually began listening to and writing music with a softer, more emotional touch. In 2003, he decided to branch off from the progressive metal writing with his band, Power of Omens, and begin work on his first full-length latin new age CD. At that time, already a 12 year veteran to the music industry, David had 2 internationally released CDs, a contribution to a Queensryche tribute CD, and as a guest artist on one of Sony Recording Tejano Artists, Eddie Gonzales’ CD under his belt. He took his experience and decided to write, record, design, and release his first solo CD completely on his own. After a year of hard work, the CD, ‘Mis Recuerdos’ was finally self-released in the Fall / Winter of 2004. Now with a completed CD, and the desire to begin showcasing his music, David became a member of BMI in 2005, and decided to move from his home in San Antonio to Dallas, where he felt he would have better opportunities playing out and getting recognition for his music. Since the beginning of 2006, his band has aggressively begun to play out. From wine bars and bistros to restaurants and festivals. As regulars at various venues through out the DFW area, his band also became a sought after act for festivals as well, such as the Morton Meyerson Symphony Hall’s Hispanic Festival in Dallas’ beautiful art district 3 years in a row and Ft. Worth’s Musicarte Festival in Sundance Square. After four long years since the release of his first CD, David finally released his follow up CD, Mi Rosa Blanca in the early part of 2009. Inspired by love and passion, this CD combines traditional flamenco rhythms with serene new age melodies to create an ambient soundscape with a Latin flare. With this new CD in pocket, there is so much in store for David and his band… so keep a look out for him, and always check his websites for upcoming events and happenings.
