"Summer With Juliet is truly wonderful, full of that all-too-rare quality of vision meeting craft and giftedness head on…. The world will always need…music written with depth of soul, character and heart. David Goldman's voice is beautiful, his lyrics surprising, his range impressive, and the record stays with you…" Rob Mathes, songwriter, performer, arranger. (Elvis Costello, Sting, Bonnie Raitt, etc.)
Combine heartfelt singing and songwriting with worldly influences from Blues, Folk, Country, Celtic, Latin and WorldBeat roots, and you have David Goldman’s “Summer With Juliet.” Of Jewish, Sicilian and Albanian background, David Goldman grew up in a house rich with classical, opera, popular, blues and international folk music. David’s musical influences and tastes run from Stevie Wonder, Howlin’ Wolf, and Tim Buckley to Ravi Shankar and Italian tenor Carlo Buti. On his mixed background, David says,”There was a lot of ethnic hand signals in my house; it was a little like living with a team of third base coaches.”
As a student in Friends World College (now Global College of LIU), David studied music, language and photography for three and a half years in India (Sitar and Vocal), Japan (Lute, Koto, and Vocal) and Korea and Mexico.
David has performed at Tarrytown Music Hall, (opening for Kenny Loggins), the Paramount Center for the Arts in Peekskill--opening for the Rippingtons, Birdland (duetting with jazz singer Hilary Kole), Rockwood Music Hall, Pleasantville Music Festival, Tribeca Performing Arts Center, New Song Festival, the Bitter End, Rutgers University, Acoustic Live Showcase at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and University of Maryland and numerous other venues in the Northeast. Several of his songs have received placement in television and film. He is currently working on his new CD to be released in the New Year.
