David Roth strikes many chords, hearts, and minds with his unique songs, off-beat observations, moving stories, sense of the hilarious, and powerful singing and subject matter. As singer, songwriter, recording artist, keynote speaker, workshop leader, and instructor, David has earned top honors at premier songwriting competitions -- Kerrville (TX) and Falcon Ridge (NY) -- and taken his music, experience, and expertise to a wide variety of venues in this and other countries for more than two decades.
“David and his music will touch you to the very depths of your soul.
He'll make you laugh and cry, inspire you to rise and fly...”
- Jack Canfield, co-author Chicken Soup for the Soul
“David has reached our hearts. With voices like his still singing, there's a
certainty that the candle will remain lit, the hope reasserted and the dream still sung...”
- Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul, & Mary)

David will also be giving a special workshop on May 2: “Songs of Love”. He will facilitate an all-levels group co-write of a custom made song for a sick child through the Songs of Love Foundation, a non-profit organization he's written over 60 songs for over the years. These one-of-a-kind creations are provided absolutely free of charge to kids and their families, and along with the family, you'll receive an MP3 of our song within a couple of weeks -- powerful, poignant, and transformational for all involved. Join us in making a difference, whether you've written a song before or not. Workshop is from 10 am - noon, with an optional potluck afterwards; $20, at the door. Contact Ron Bekey at firstname.lastname@example.org or (503) 475-0084 to sign up.
