About Me
I am a performing songwriter, a musical journeyman who loves to play live. Playing live to me is all about connecting - with the music and with each other. Rather than me say anymore, here is a quote from Alison Macdonald of Stonecroft Folk Series, whose house concert I performed at recently in southern Ontario, Canada:

"We were lucky to have David here as part of our last season and I wanted to let you know how awesome he is. His songwriting is beautiful and in concert he is able to tell stories which draw the audience into the web he is spinning. He is articulate about many topics which means his songs attract a wide ranging audience. We were also so glad to have dinner with him before the show. He was a warm and interesting guest who was a pleasure to have in our home and we plan to have him back soon. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to host a show. His professionalism and knowledge of sound systems means he would be a great mix with a newbie house concert host as well as us old pros."

David Leask - The Bio

"Leask brings to his music a compellingly honest baring of the soul" Toronto Star

"Leask writes great songs... I've added him to an amazing group of talent that includes John Prine, Joe Henry and John Hiatt." Brandon Sun

Originally from Edinburgh, Scotland, David Leask has been writing, performing and recording his original music for over 25 years. Since moving to Canada in 1992, he has produced three critically-acclaimed CD's, one Juno nomination and a bag full of songwriting awards. David is the recipient of the Mississauga Established Performing Artist of the Year Award, an honour previously bestowed upon Oscar Peterson and Rik Emmett by Canada’s 6th largest city. A musical journeyman, he has performed over 2000 shows in the last 17 years, from intimate house concerts to large outdoor festivals. David has embraced the rootsy Canadian influences of his new home and blended them with the Celtic and melodic-pop sensibilities of his homeland. His music moves his listeners both emotionally and physically with his infectious groove-based songs of substance - real life stories intelligently crafted in sonic landscapes that stay with you long after the last note is played. His songwriting talent has been recognized in numerous international songwriting awards including a two-time winner of the International Songwriting Contest and a three-time winner of the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals “Songs From The Heart” competition.

A talented multi-instrumentalist with a sharp Scottish wit, David’s live show is always musically rich, high energy and heart-felt, whether he’s playing solo or backed by top notch side players. He has shared the stage with such artists as the Waterboys, Valdy, Natalie MacMaster and the Barra MacNeil's at venues across the country where he continues to captivate audiences with the intensity his performance and the disarming honesty of his songs.

Swedish leftwing swing band Cats and Dinosaurs looking for gigs in northen Germany october/november!

Hello!I am booking concerts for Swedish leftwing swing band Cats and Dinosaurs Germany tour, and it would be great to add some house concerts to the tour! I have been doing a lot of house concerts with other bands and I love it, so I hope to get a chance to try it also with this band. We are a bigger band than most house concert shows, but I think it would work well.
