David Boye CD Release Party

davidboye.jpeg

David Boye is a composer, musician, songwriter and educator from Lincoln, Nebraska. He has crisscrossed many musical paths in his 30- plus years as a guitarist, bassist, and composer. He has performed an eclectic variety of music styles in ambient, new age, rock, blues and jazz groups throughout the midwest and nationally. In 2007 he returned to one of his first music loves, solo fingerstyle instrumental acoustic guitar. Inspired by guitar pioneers like Leo Kottke, Michael Hedges, Davy Graham and others he began to write original pieces for solo guitar, employing features like alternate tunings, percussive techniques on the guitar, and multi tracked “looping”. He was accepted as an Artist In Residence at North Cascades National Park in 2008 which was the start of a personal passion of exploring and creating sounds that evoke the infinite wonders of the wilderness of the National Parks and the west. He has also served as an Artist In Residence at Rocky Mountain National Park and Homestead National Monument. The results of these residencies are evocative and uplifting pieces that will elicit the calm splendor of the beautiful vistas and wide open spaces of the great American outdoors. This show will be the official release of his CD Contemplation: Rocky Mountain National Park. The music represents music composed during his residency at Rocky Mountain National Park. He will also discuss his recent performance tour of National Parks and Monuments throughout the west.
