His CD has received top reviews. Phil Keaggy said, “Your talent is God-given — this is obvious. Congratulations on a finely produced work of art!” Along with performing, David is also a guitar instructor at Spring Arbor University.

Ian Ethan Case

Boston-based acoustic double-neck guitarist and Candyrat recording artist Ian Ethan Case has been performing in listening rooms across the country for the past eight years and is increasingly gaining recognition both for his unique instrumental compositions and for the highly original playing methods which are required to perform them. One of only about five musicians worldwide to tackle the double-neck guitar in earnest, he fluidly combines a variety of self-invented playing techniques necessitated by his multi-layered compositions, which, taken together, have begun to establish the instrument’s musical validity perhaps more so than the work of any other artist. While audiences consistently remark on the fascinating visual aspects of watching Ian play “as he rambunctiously weaves between fretboards, slapping and tapping the sounds of the guitar to life seemingly effortlessly in a style that you’ve likely never seen before” (Port Orchard Independent), his unusual methods are simply byproducts of the rich, heartfelt, and powerfully uplifting music that he composes.
