Melodic Rock Guitarist David Mark Pearce releases new single – ‘Tell Me Why’

David Mark Pearce announces the release of his new single ‘Tell Me Why’. A native of Penzance (Cornwall, UK), David Mark Pearce began playing the guitar in earnest at the age of 15 after first learning to play the drums. His first experience as part of a band came at 18, followed by several more until he left to attend the London College of Music and Media. Upon completion, he received a diploma in Music Technology, and began his career as a much sought after engineer and producer.

Since his debut with the Oliver Wakeman Band at the Oakwood Center in December, 2002, his association with the band has taken many interesting twists and turns, including co-headlining (as part of the OWB) with Erik Norlander and Lana Lane, support work with Arjen Luccassen’s band “Stream of Passion”, and also appearing at the prestigious Fordhamfest. Other highlights include an appearance with Oliver at one of the UK Classic Rock Society’s acoustic evenings, where he showed his talent on classical guitar. A big highlight was the 2008 performance and filming of the Coming to Town – Live in Katowice DVD and cd (Metal Mind Productions) at the Wyspianski Theater in Katowice, Poland. He was also named 2008’s eighth “Best Guitarist” by Classic Rock Society Magazine in the UK for his work with the band.

He also works as a live sound engineer. More recently, he has been co-producer, sound engineer and provided guitar support to keyboardist Lisa LaRue on her latest album “Lisa LaRue Project 2K9 World Class.”

From Paul Baker – Soundscapes, ARfm, U.K. :

“The lead in to the song is quite distinctive and gentle, leading straight into the full on”classic rock” style of the song. John Payne’s distinctive vocals sit very nicely over the mid-paced song. There are subtle moments that move this song onwards and upwards to a higher plane than the normal “classic rock’ song.

It isn’t over complicated, David sticking to his strengths, with controlled but powerful guitar, solid vocals and a vocal hook/chorus line that will have you singing along straight away…”

‘Tell Me Why’ is a melodic rock must-hear!
