Welcome to the homepage of independent South Carolina songwriter and musician, David Jennings.

It is somewhat difficult to classify my music into one genre alone, though rock music is by far my safety zone. I simply write what comes. Hard Rock, Acoustic, Adult Contemporary, even Country-Americana at times. I once used the term "Alternative," though I'm not sure what that means now. I have a hard time figuring out what's alternative these days, so I'll just stick with the conventionals.

If you have a few minutes, check out some of my tunes. To see what's going on at the present time, browse over the news section. And if you have any comments or questions, simply use the contact page. Thanks for taking the time to visit my site!

Life in Music

Though musical instruments were in my reach from birth (my father plays guitar and piano), they never truly interested me until high school. I was a decent trumpet player, but it wasn't a suitable means to express the ideas and emotions I had inside (don't get me wrong - I'm cool with Jazz, but I'm not cool *at* Jazz). I started writing songs at the piano around the age of 15. At 16 I started singing/writing with a band of friends, which two years later would become known as X's4I's. So at 18 (a little behind) I finally decided to try my hand at guitar. It became an indispensable writing mechanism (my primary source of creativity to this day) and enabled me to explore new rhythmic and melodic ground. Working as a band was unbelievable fun (though sometimes unbelievably frustrating). We played our hearts out for close to a year - finding time to record and promote as well. Success was never destined though, and I think that as five young individuals with the world in front of us, moving apart only seemed right.

I married happily at 21, and with the support of my wife continued to write and record songs. In fact, recording became just as exciting as writing, so I invested the next several years into learning the art of audio engineering and production (which I continue to learn today). For me the process is all-together one. Writing, recording, and producing each go hand-in-hand and ultimately leave both the artist and the listener with one creation. So here I am at 30 - writing, recording, and producing. I share these things with you, those interested enough to read this little bio, and hope that you enjoy listening to my music as much as I enjoy creating it. Sit back and take it in. And if you have any comments or questions, feel free to contact me anytime.
