Artist's Description

This photo was taken at the Ottawa Convention Centre during the AFN Xmas Gala on December 8th, 2011.

David Finkle has been called a ‘Renaissance man’ by those who know him best. He is an award-winning multi-instrumental recording artist well-versed in many a musical doctrine. He’s a sound engineer, a producer, a graphic designer and a ‘go-to-man’ for various plays and TV soundtracks. David is also a highly sought after project facilitator for his popular workshops regarding traditional drum making and historical presentations. Being of such a multi-disciplined nature, if you’ve ever left your house chances are you’ve probably seen or heard David acting in one capacity or another. David can often be seen performing the festival circuit with any host of musicians from as many different cultural backgrounds. He can be seen performing either solo, with the award winning group ‘Northern Voices’, with his award winning vocalist daughter ‘Aurora Jade’, with the Metis fiddle-based group ‘FIDDLEGROUND’ as well as the ‘Andy Mason Band’. So, whether as a vendor selling his wares at a Pow-wow or as a performer at any one of numerous festivals…if you’ve seen David you’ll know you’ve seen someone with a wealth of traditional knowledge and history with an engaging yet unimposing sense of spiritual conviction. This is evident in his popularity within Elementary, High, as well as Post Secondary schools in the capacity of ‘Artist Educator’ usually along side wife and traditional singer/drummer, Laura Leonard. This page is but one example of his musical talents, specializing in the genre of ‘World-beat’. Whilst exhibitting strong focus on drum, melody duties often go to Native American Flute. An instrument which according to David is “unlike any in the world…” All compositions written,performed,recorded and produced by David Finkle. www.myspace.com/davidfinkleflute CONTACT DAVID: davidfinkledrums@hotmail.com or call (613) 422-5294.
