David put together the original rock act VELOCITY in 1996 and recorded and produced the debut album IMPACT in 1997 which included drummer Pat Torpey (MR. BIG, ROBERT PLANT, THE KNACK) on drums.
VELOCITY performed throughout the U.S. IMPACT went on to sell briskly in the U.S. and over 5000 copies in Utah alone, where the album received regular airplay on rebellious rock station K-ROCK.
IMPACT sold worldwide with deals on Europe’s MTM Records and Japan’s AVEX records and continues to sell to this day.
VELOCITY also released the “ACTIVATOR” 5-song EP in 2001.
In 1999, David moved to Los Angeles and found many opportunities to perform live. In 2003, David founded his own web consultancy, Boomcycle Digital Marketing, and used his talents to promote his music. LA bands included a BOSTON tribute band called SMOKIN’, as well as a high-level rock jam band that featured musical notables including Chuck Wright of QUIET RIOT, Jason Hook of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and Pat Torpey (RIP).
David’s path soon took a turn for the cinematic, following roughly in the footsteps of Mark Wahlberg’s character in the movie “ROCK STAR”.8
