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.
