David Hull’s new release Soul In Motion shows us his time to step out front has come.
An accomplished songwriter, producer and composer, and a highly sought after bassist and collaborator, David’s career and creativity defy category, but he has no doubt found his niche as a solo artist.
Though perhaps his most high-profile role has been as replacement for Tom Hamilton on the Aerosmith Root of All Evil tour in 2006, and again in 2009, David had truly earned that feature after years of paying his musical dues.
At age 18, the Stratford, CT native got an early start with the Buddy Miles Band, which led to recording and touring with Miles, Joe Cocker, Ted Nugent and Arthur Lee & Love, who trusted his rhythmic instincts, and his contributions to hits like the Miles classic Them Changes.
David set out on his own in the 70s as founding member of the rock band Dirty Angels. His songwriting, playing and producing skills led to three releases for RCA and A&M. In the 80s, another rock trio FarrenHeit benefited by David’s contributions to the band’s popular Warner Bros. recordings, and sell-out domestic and international audiences.
His talent was clear to Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, who tapped David in 1979 for The Joe Perry Project. David contributed a number of songs to the Project including the single Buzz Buzz. David rejoined Perry when The Joe Perry Project reformed in 2009 for another year of touring, and to record the acclaimed release Have Guitar Will Travel.
Through the years David’s career and reputation expanded along with his musical genres. He recorded and toured with Pete Droge, Modern Farmer, Monster Mike Welch, and the legendary James Montgomery Band. Most recently David has served as producer and co-writer on Montgomery’s 2011 release From Detroit to the Delta. He is also featured on the new De La Vegaz release, “Here Come the De La Vegaz” on Raceway Records. Check out their website: www.delavegaz.com
As composer for Film and TV, David’s credits include NCIS for CBS, and scores for the Hallmark Channel documentaries Listening to Islam, The Future of Great Preaching, Wonder of Creation and the pilot film At the Movies with Sister Rose.
Now as soloist, David’s versatility on Soul In Motion is evident– from the soulful single Pay Some Attention featuring The Uptown Horns, to the gritty title track with Joe Perry, and the dark Life So Far with Charlie Farren on background vocals. Losing preconceptions and leaving the comfort zone to branch out in new directions is what Soul in Motion, and what David Hull, is all about.
