David Essig

Duncan Showroom, 131 Station Street, Duncan BC

often asked “what kind of music do you play?” The best answer I’ve been able to come up with is “authentic.” I make songs that combine the narrative style of my literary heroes, Alden Nowlan, Raymond Carver and Richard Ford, with the intense, blues-flavoured slide guitar playing that’s often associated with Ry Cooder. I’m basically a finger-picker, working a lot in open tunings, and building songs out of blues and country traditions.

With influences of R&B, Rock, and Jazz, SHALE’s one-of-a-kind sound is deep without darkness, bold without boasting and organic without crunchy granola. With collective backgrounds in classical music, dance, choral performance, and sound engineering, the members of SHALE are a creative force in the studio, but truly come alive on the stage. SHALE’s debut studio album is scheduled for release fall 2019. In the interim you’ll find SHALE on the stage at venues across Vancouver Island and beyond, gripping the crowd with an earnest and captivating show. "
