Biography

Singer, writer, and producer all in one, David Homyk’s music can be described as a blend of Maroon 5 and James Blunt, often mixed with a Timbaland style production. David is known to put on high energy live performances, juggling piano, guitar, and various instruments on stage. His repertoire of catchy songs and first class showmanship dazzle audiences who find themselves dancing and singing along, transfixed by his touching, reflective music which ranges from fun and exciting to downright heart wrenching. A producer by trade, David has made recordings for many well known artists including Beyoncé and her sister Solange.

Canadian born, Virginia bred, David lived with a heart full of music from an early age. At only eight years old he began composing songs at the piano, inspired by Scott Joplin and early Ragtime jazz musicians. As he grew, so too did the songs that consumed him. Relief came only when he put pen to paper to write the music that would eventually shape his creative sound and distinct style. David spent his early school years obsessively arranging and rearranging his compositions during classes. Spacing out in class and composing full songs on the back of math homework was a daily affair. After school he began picking up other instruments; guitar, bass guitar, and saxophone and recording himself sing and play all of them.

Despite his academic indifference, the power of David’s writing got him into the University of Virginia. Here, he refined his sound as a record producer. He began incorporating his signature drum tracks and style into Beyoncé songs. The remixes were a hit and the sound caught on. Before he knew it, David was sitting in front of Beyoncé’s father, music industry mogul Matthew Knowles, CEO of Music World Entertainment. After hearing David’s original material and songwriting the company took full interest in him as a writer as well as a record producer. David graduated and relocated to New York City where he has been writing songs and producing tracks for a wide range of artists. He tours and performs, having shared stages with artists ranging from American Idol’s Constantine Maroulis to the hip-hop legend & hall of fame inductee Doug E. Fresh. David’s debut album, True Story, can be purchased on Amazon.com and on iTunes in the US, Canada, UK/European Union, Australia/N.Z. and Japan.

Apart from music, David appears regularly on the daytime soap opera, “All My Children,” and has made several appearances on both “The Tyra Banks Show” and on “Sex and the City.” He has also modeled in a wide range of campaigns for clothing companies such as Club Monaco and Burlington Coat Factory, and has appeared in many commercial print advertisements. He was the first ever commercial model for the familiar fruit juice drink, Capri Sun, and appears in commercial spots for Anheuser-Busch as the official mixologist for the popular beverage, Bud Light Lime.
