David Ellul

David Ellul is a very talented singer/guitarist. He covers many songs from artists ranging from Simon & Garfunkel, Smashing Pumpkins, Oasis to Phil Collins.

 

1. Who is your biggest musical influence and why?
Too many to name.
Vocally, I listened to a lot of Coverdale, Geoff Tate, and Dio.
Guitars, well of course so many, too many to name, but of course Van Halen, Satriani, and Stevie Ray. Bands, so many. Bands and artists, so many again. Prince, Sting/Police, AC/DC, Journey... Maybe my biggest musical influence was myself. I was attracted to what I liked. Did I like it because I heard it, or did I listen again because it vibrated sympathetically with something inside me? 

 

2. What is your earliest memory of music?
There must be something earlier, but I remember being kicked out of a choir because my voice was too low. I remember singing though, and can replay it a bit in my head. I pretty sure now in hindsight it was just because my pitch was so dreadful ;) I also remember jumping on my bed to the theme of Star Wars.

 

3. What is your ultimate goal as an artist?
Making a steady living as a musician would be nice. Then I could actually focus solely on art, instead of the art of survival. It's really weird to think about how long I have been trying to find time and resources to allow myself to just sit, and write, and arrange, and produce. I love to write. I live to perform. Buying some new gear would be nice too, as most of it was stolen a few months back. I certainly wouldn't mind fame and fortune, though I've learned that fortune is the better side of that two edged sword. Fame can be a bitch.
