David Espinel started his drumming experience at the age of 6 years old playing in his elementary school marching band. During his early teen years he was involved in the high school band, high school ensemble and in the later years he joined the jazz band program touring Canada. During the high school years David played along Morgan Childs, a funk and jazz enthusiast, who has now become a well-established recording and touring drummer based out of Toronto.
David got his professional start at age 17 playing in various clubs and festivals. He has performed and toured with many bands across Canada and parts of the United States including a gig at the world-famous Whisky A Go-Go in Hollywood in the summer of 2014 where he opened for LA Guns.
David has taught drum lessons at Rhythmic Studios, Music Makers and Long & McQuade in Calgary for just over 9 years. David also studied drum theory for a short time at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California.
David composed music and wrote lyrics for his first song titled ‘El Juego’ (The Game) while living in Quito, Ecuador in the summer of 1998. The song was aired in some radio stations in Quito and along with his band during that time called Fuera De Sitio, he performed his song at many venues and some festivals in Quito. In recent years David has composed new material that is available to the public under the artist name ‘David Espinel’, on Band Camp, YouTube, Reverbnation and Sound Cloud.
David is currently working with Mexican singer Lorena Galindo and multi-instrumentalist Eduardo Infante also from Mexico in a new Latin Pop band named Medusa Pop.
