His live Kirtans and concerts are joyous, ecstatic, uplifting and exploding with energy.

His recordings expand the traditional Kirtan medium by incorporating a wide range of musical and lyrical elements and by exploring a vast palette of progressive production influences. David is a devotee of Sri Neem Karoli Baba and he writes: "As I sing the sacred names and strum the eternal chords, I say thank you agian and again that my beloved Sri Baba Neem Karoli is smiling in my heart! If there is beauty found in my music and if it serves to inspire and uplift, it is for this reason."
