Get To Know DAVID E. MAXWELL-Philly’s Uprising Star!


April of 1990 was an important turning point in his life. David reached out and called on the name of the Lord who answered and delivered him from the gates of hell. Returning to his church roots, he began again, to rebuild his foundation and faith in God. He joined the Hebron Tabernacle Church, where he filled in and played the piano behind the pastors wife during praise and worship services. He began to be strengthened and grow in grace more and more as he acknowledge the gift giver. As the years went by David has been the praise and worship leader for several churches, realizing that the gift of music is not just for self but to minister to others as well.

IAA:  What is your music background?

DAVID:  I showed interest in music at the age of five when I would mimic playing my toy guitar while my father would practice with his band in our basement.  At age 8, I received an old folk guitar by an older cousin who showed me how to play a honky tonk tune. I played by ear and I am basically self taught and can play several different instruments. As time went by I joined several other top forty bands that traveled and played on the local circuit.

IAA:  Why do you want to record and release your own music?

DAVID:  I have been playing music on and off almost all my life. Music allows me to express myself and gives me a great sense of accomplishment.

IAA:  Who is your fan base directed towards?

DAVID:  My main fan base consists of Christians, but I believe my sound and style can reach fans outside of the Christian genre.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

DAVID:  My musical influences are Ben Tankard, Jeff Lorber, Clint Brown, Ron Kenoly, Brass Construction, Pleasure, Gospel Ganstaz, Tye Tribbett, Kirk Franklin, Cameo, Kool and the Gang, War, George Clinton, Commissioned, Fred Hammond, Bernanrd Wright, and many, many, more.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people ?

DAVID:  For the most part, I would say that my music is a combination of gospel, funk, and jazz. My music has an old school flavor with a new school twist.  It has some elements of theme music that tells a story with and without lyrics.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artist ?

DAVID:  Outside of the fact that I do all the instrumentation, vocals, mixing and mastering my own material. I have an unique sound, and I don’t follow the trends.

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects, you are currently working on?

DAVID:  I am currently working on a new cd project that is scheduled to be released in may 2012. I have multiple article and radio interviews scheduled, and I’m looking forward to touring as well.

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
