Obviously, making music is a wonderful thing. But, as I am sure you are aware, it also can be quite costly to record, produce and make a new recording. We make every effort to be good stewards of what we do. Out recording/production budget is very small compared to what other artists spend. Please consider supporting us.

Bio

David Chenault was born and raised in Cannelton, a tiny little river town in southern Indiana. He was raised in the Pentecostal tradition. At an early age, he was exposed to spiritual musical influences in the church.

As a young boy, David was very influenced by this traditional gospel music. Coming from a musical family, he naturally gravitated to this early influence in his life. When he was very young, his father would play traditional American music on an old RCA Victrola record player.

David's earliest musical influences therefore became people like Johnny Cash, Mahalia Jackson, Johnny Horton, Jean Shepherd, Hank Williams and numerous Gospel artists.

But when he got to a certain age, it was the traditional, soulful sounds of Pentecostal church music that really captured and held his creative attention.

David attributes those early influences to why he sounds and writes like he does today. He describes his music as "Delta Gospel" based on his early southern Pentecostal and gospel musical influences.

Currently David is working on his second Christian music album. He is at this time, in the studio writing and producing new material.

The album project is expected to be completed soon...

Thanks for reading.

    Hello David, I’m not sure if you remember me well. I was probably 10 years old or younger the last time you saw me, but you obviously know my entire family well. I just wanted to let you know how much I love that your music is on Spotify! I loved listening to you in church as a youngster and your CDs played often in our home when I was a kid. I’m now 21 years old and work as a funeral director in Muncie, IN, my co-worker loves Christian music so I played my Christian playlist for her which includes all of your songs and she loved ‘The New Jerusalem’. I just wanted to tell you a little bit about my memories & that even now your music means a lot to me. I hope you’re doing well💗

    Hi Danny, Thanks so much for your kind words. I am humbled and honored that you feel that way. Thank you so very much. It is also great to meet you too. I too am a recovering alcoholic. I still struggle with letting alcohol go to be honest with you. I have written, played, arranged, sang and produced music since I was 15 years old. I never really pursued fame or fortune, probably because I was too involved in partying unfortunately - and drinking and those things. It is so great to hear from you. Even if we never do get to collaborate together, I really enjoyed reading your letter and we can continue to communicate with one another. Also, something that you might find interesting,I am currently uploading not only new music and material that I have written,but I am reproducing completely some songs I wrote (and own all rights to), that I shared production rights with those songs with a co-producer whom I no longer work with. I am going to completely reproduce those songs - those songs will all have their sounds and arrangements soon changed.So please come back to my page and my site and listen from time to time, I will let you know which songs are brand new arrangements and new productions. Thanks so much for writing and let's stay in touch, and if you have any interest perhaps we could friend each other on Facebook. God bless you. Thank you for writing and let's definitely stay in touch. Blessings, David.
