I AM. . .

I AM a combination of these things and so much more.  Sometimes, my nature is a contradiction of itself.

After all, to a certain degree...our experience here on Earth is defined by our dichotomous nature.  I suppose that's what makes me human.  I guess that's why I'm just like you...

 


 

I AM DAVID VINES

I'm a 27yr old singer/songwriter/lyricist/composer from Richmond, VA.  Almost 7.5 years ago, I relinquished my academic college scholarship, packed all of my belongings, bought a one way ticket, and moved on my own to LA. I had no friends or family, and I only had $2,000 to my name. Needless to say, it's been quite the journey! Year after year, I put in the work on my craft and in 2013, it culminated in the free online release of my debut album, Fly...735.  Today, "Fly...735" is currently available on iTunes, Pandora, Apple Music, TIDAL, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Rhapsody, Google Play, and Amazon.  

I've never been one to like labels.  In my opinion, we label things out of our human need to define and characterize, which is based in our tendency to fear what we don't understand.  In all honesty, I create music to express myself...no matter the genre.   I am a melting pot of both new and old and at the end of the day...it's all just self expression to me.  I'm an independent artist who isn't looking for a record deal.  I'm simply trying to reignite the power in mainstream music, because generally speaking, a lot of it has truly lost it's sense of purpose and direction.  Through my music, I represent myself as well as all of you.  I truly care...

All of my upcoming work is released/distributed by my indie imprint, Eudaimonia Records. Eudaimonia is an ancient Greek philosophy which means "the art of human flourishing." My mission is to spread great mainstream music/art to the public and use it as a conduit to inform the masses and to incite consciousness.  My generation currently holds the keys to the future of our society, and through music/art, I want to have a part in leading us back in the right direction.  If you support this mission and you wish to be a part of this journey, then simply press play, open your mind, and get ready for this ride.  I guarantee, we both will NEVER forget it...

Peace and Love,

David Vines
