September 21st, 2015 — The band and I had a blast playing at this year’s inaugural KAABOO music festival in Del Mar, CA.
It was a sunshine-filled day of music, family & friends, beer and good vibes.
Great to connect with and watch friends play on several of the stages around the festival.
I managed to roam around before + after our show to catch standout sets by Donavon Frankenreiter, Ben Harper, The Killers, Dawes, The White Buffalo, Open Air Stereo and the J Band.
Here are some live pics taken by my good friend, Lan Nguyen. Cheers!

February 5th, 2015 — Each year I feel blessed to call Orange County home when the NAMM (National Assoc of Music Merchants) show rolls through town at the Anaheim Convention Center. It’s a chance to reconnect with my old friends, talk shop and check out the latest and greatest in instruments, gear and gadgets in music… and it’s all in my backyard.
Each year it get’s bigger and bigger, with more and more musicians, manufacturers and music lovers… picture a rabid Saturday crowd at Costco inside a convention hall sized IKEA filled with music gear. It can be a bit overwhelming, but in the best way possible.
This year, I teamed up with my friends over at Godin Guitars / Seagull Guitars and ripped through a 4-song set with my band in their packed showcase room. We damn near started a hootenanny. It was great!
I can’t help but thank everyone at Godin for their continued love and support throughout the years!
January 15th, 2015 — I’m excited to announce that you are now able to listen to my latest album, Along the Way, on Pandora!
Add my station, “David Rosales Radio” and you’ll get a steady stream of good tunes from myself and other artists HERE: http://Pandora.com/david-rosales
Discover Something New… Happy Listening!
Reminiscent of artists such as Ryan Adams, Amos Lee, and Brett Dennen, David Rosales shakes things up on his 2014 sophomore solo EP, Along the Way, with a broad sonic palate rooted in American country, folk & blues.
Along the Way, was recorded with the help of NightOwl Recorders’ producing partners, musicians and friends, Matt Grundy & Paul Clark (Donavon Frankenreiter).
The EP begins with the first single, “Too Young to Know Better.” With a serene, dream-folk vibe and a touch of country, the track swings into the EP’s uptempo and sun-soaked second single “Slice of Heaven,” featuring an infectious, fun-loving pop hook. Building momentum over the course of Along the Way‘s eclectic array of 7 seamless tracks, Rosales wraps-up the EP by showing his teeth in the gritty blues-driven third single, “Crashing Down.”
Rosales has been on a whirlwind of tour dates since the release of Along the Way on June 17th, 2014, highlighted by stops at Toronto’s NXNE Festival, Austin’s SW Regional Folk Alliance and performances with indie-folk darling, Sea Wolf, Grammy-winning Bluegrass gents, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Americana rocker, Rhett Miller/Old 97’s. Behind a national college radio campaign, Rosales was on the road throughout much of 2014 amassing over 175 performances.
