With his unique and diverse blend of acoustic folk, rock, gospel and jazz, David Zink can summon a passionate energy reminiscent of Bruce Cockburn, U2, Peter Gabriel, and David Byrne, but in a style all his own. His songs are probing and intelligent, his voice wide ranged and powerful. Accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, mandolin and harmonica, he proves himself to be a captivating performer. David Zink has performed throughout the United States, as well as in Netherlands, Belgium, France and Denmark, and has been a featured performer at the Sierra Songwriters Festival, ASCAP's Quiet on the Set, the National Academy of Songwriters' Acoustic Underground at The Troubadour in Hollywood, California, and Best of the Acoustic Underground showcases at the High Sierra Music Festival and Midem 1996 in Cannes, France. David's work also extends to the stage and screen. Over the past 10 years he has performed in major roles in several new productions with L.A.'s Open Gate Theatre, including Noman's Return, Jacob, Agamemnon, The Oresteia, Manzanito's Revenge, Archetype's and Other Delights, Saul and David. His most recent screen role was in the film If I Had a Hammer (directed by Josh Becker) as the tortured folkie Bobbie Lee, a 5-minute part with monologue and song.
