David Lawrence and the Spoonful
David Lawrence has called Colorado home for over a decade. Whether performing solo or with his full band, ‘The Spoonful,’ David brings a unique blend of finger-picking Delta blues, Roots-Americana, soulful vocals, and his style of Gypsy-infused jazz guitar. In recent years, David has focused on his original sound & released a debut full length album produced by Banshee Tree frontman Thom LaFond. ‘Lean In’ received accolades on CPR, Westword Magazine, 303 Magazine, 5280, Rooster Magazine & plays on local radio all over CO. A poet at heart, David’s original sound combines evocative imagery and storytelling with infectious melodies and rich, layered guitar playing. True to his musical roots, David’s music is raw, gritty, soulful, and full of heart.
