David Steinhart

David Steinhart is an songwriter with stories to tell. Living inside these songs are tales of persons in desperate situations, chronicles of life in 21st century Los Angeles, and stories of quietly heroic individuals, often told with a nod towards the inexorable passage of time. Acclaimed songwriter, singer and guitarist David Steinhart fashions songs that lyrically live on the hopeful side of melancholy, with an approach to songwriting by turns stark and ethereal, and perfect for an acoustic treatment. The supple accompaniment from his small string orchestra The Furious Seasons, generates a surprising tonal lushness, in the end creating a hypnotic universe in which the listener can lose themselves for a time. Listen to these songs and they will change you. Veteran Los Angeles songwriter David Steinhart has distilled decades of songwriting on over 20 album releases, and with his brother Jeff has toured the U.S. and Europe in the '90s and ‘00s in bands Smart Brown Handbag and Pop Art

"David Steinhart's been a perennial cottage industry goldmine for those who carry torches for soft, finely crafted, windswept pop. David writes and sings warm, literate, sober, preoccupied folk pop, always well-crafted and full of small, conspicuous, workmanlike extras with an aptitude for unpretentious, poppy hooks ..."
