A folk rhythms and jazz approach, original songs of David Reilly combining instruments of bass, guitar, harp, percussion, and saxophone.
David Reilly was trained as a jazz percussionist playing a kit in his first band Stray Meet. He was led to playing the harmonica based on the rhythm and blues influences of favorite recordings of R&B musicians. Learning the guitar provided the supporting connection to his songs, poetry, and stories. Added to this array of instruments came the bass guitar; a desire to play motivated from years as a percussionist and song writer.
