January 25th, 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!

October 31st, 2014 — Earlier this year I released my 2nd solo album, ALONG THE WAY, and toured through Canada + the U.S. East Coast. I spent a couple days in NYC doing press for the album + hanging out. Yesterday I received this recording by Indaba Music that brought back a ton of great memories of getting lost in the jungle.

JULY 22, 2014 — Today, New York City’s JoonBug is exclusively premiering, “Not Playing to Lose.” JoonBug hails David’s new album, Along the Way, as a “…genre defier.”
“Genres…they’re limiting; they demand commitment from a wisp of emotion, a magical moment or a fleeting thought, all blended into a lifetime of musical memories. It just doesn’t seem fair to categorize a visceral culmination. Okay, we’ll concede that genres serve a purpose: they streamline a fan base by directing the songs to like-minded listeners. Fair enough, but can an album defy all genres by having mass appeal?
You judge. Singer-songwriter David Rosales‘ new album may do just that. A little bit of Americana, a lil’ California, rock ‘n’ roll, country, folk…it’s a genre defier…”

JULY 9, 2014 — Today, Guitar World Magazine is exclusively premiering David’s “sweetly optimistic, fun-loving song”, Slice of Heaven.
This solo acoustic performance is a bit more “laid back” than the “much peppier, twangier version” on the album (available on iTunes HERE), yet equally appealing of course. GW’s Laura Whitmore writes, “I particularly love the chorus, ‘We don’t give a damn how we look when we dance…’ Right on!”
