David John Modica: Home

David's haunting music on acoustic and electric guitar touches the listener's heart with the anticipation and ultimate fulfillment of the journey home. His delicate melodies, continually reinventing themselves, and the rich colors he gently coaxes from his instrument, reflect his experience both as a musician, and as an individual who has spent the major portion of his life seeking inner understanding.

David's style is all his own, developed over many years as a performer and composer. His work involves various techniques including finger style, flat-picking, jazz chording, spontaneous improvisation, classical, rock, blues, and folk. David pulls these various elements together in a unique mix that creates a timeless space in sound.

David music has been used in films by independent film director Ray Nomoto Robison, including Sixes and the One Eyed King, which won the Audience Choice Award at festivals in Miami and Louisville as well as the Best Feature Award at the Rogue Independent Film Festival in Oregon. David's music has also been used to open author Guy Finley's numerous radio programs and multiple audio albums. Actor Desi Arnaz Jr. uses David's music to welcome the audience to shows he produces at his historic Boulder City Theatre in Boulder City, Nevada. Mr. Arnaz says, David's music "has a wonderful calming effect on people waiting for the show to begin."

With nine albums released to date and songs reaching the top 20 on iTunes New Age charts... David's musical style is perpetually evolving – from acoustic guitar to electric guitar, native flute, keyboards, percussion and more… David’s compositions continue to push the limits on style, sound and originality. His albums are lyrical, complex, and invite the listener to join in the exploration of all the beauty to be found within and without one's own being.
