Biography

David Grissom from Louisville, Kentucky and currently of Austin, Texas, is a guitarist known for his early work with Joe Ely, for whom he was the main guitarist between 1985-1991. While still recording with Ely, Grissom went on to join the John Mellencamp Band. Following Mellencamp, he went on to form the critically acclaimed band Storyville with Malford Milligan (vocals), David Holt (guitar), and Double Trouble together with Tommy Shannon (bass) and Chris Layton (drums). He wrote most of the Storyville songs as well, e. g. Good Day for the Blues. Keep in mind that the music in the LastFM player on the Storyville page is from a British acoustic pop band with the same name though.

David Grissom has since toured with The Allman Brothers Band and the Dixie Chicks. On May 19, 2007, at a free concert titled “The Road To Austin”, Bobby Whitlock performed his electric version of Layla and Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad with dueling guitars courtesy of David Grissom and Eric Johnson.

Grissom released his first solo album Loud Music in 2007. He has also recorded sessions, played and toured with a number of other American recording artists, including Buddy Guy, Chris Isaak, Sarah Hickman and Bob Dylan. David Grissom recently recorded with Owen Temple on his latest album Two Thousand Miles, produced by Lloyd Maines. In January 2009 he released his second CD 10,000 Feet. He has also written an educational “Guide To Blues/Rock Guitar Soloing” with an extra CD containing examples of his style, published by Cherry Lane Music.
