David Nyro is the name. Trying to make a living off an elpee's worth of tunes. And then some.
Originally from Connecticut. 13 states later, I'm based in beautiful Seattle. Only the traffic sucks. I dig all kinds of music, from all era's - from opera and classical to ambient, bluegrass, jazz, folk and good ol' pop and rock. I imagine it's all mashed up inside, filtering itself in mysterious, organic ways and manifesting in my eclectic songs. You be the judge and jury, please! I greatly appreciate hearing from everyone about my music, the good, the bad and the ugly. It's all good, really.
Since 2009, my songs written stand at 270, give or take. My song count keeps climbing, of course. Some times, it's all too much and just a mess to keep track of. No way I know or remember them all, although they're all written and copyrighted. I've recorded six songs at Empty Sea Studios and plan to record a few more soon. I'm also working on getting my home studio in place for decent-quality demos. Recording in a professional studio is nice, but those costs really mount up. No way I could record 20 of my songs, let along 270; not that I would. Only the good ones, right?
I have a long and varied story, as do we all. From artist, to radio and TV, to Seattle band in the 90's, to professional fundraiser for nonprofits, with many stops and detours along the way (Those include barista, record store, factory-worker, river guide, movie actor, census-taker, documentary director and producer, concert promoter and rodeo clown. Okay, just clowning around about that last one. But it sounded funny, yes?)
I love my son, Oliver, skiing, backpacking, photography, cooking, travel, movies, comic books, NPR, meteorology, history, reading, writing, drawing, making music - of course - hanging with family and friends, learning about everything, mentoring and helping people, being vegan and so much more.
Looking forward to your questions and ideas. Thank you for listening, commenting and sharing.
Be a positive force in your life and shine a little. We could use more of that.
