David Modica's haunting music on acoustic and electric guitar touches the listener's heart with the anticipation and ultimate fulfillment of the journey home. His delicate melodies, continually reinventing themselves, and the rich colors he gently coaxes from his instrument reflect his experience both as a musician and as an individual who has spent most of his life seeking inner understanding.  

David's style is all his own, developed over many years as a performer and composer. His work involves various techniques, including fingerstyle, flat-picking, jazz chording, spontaneous improvisation, classical, rock, blues, and folk. David pulls these various elements together in a unique mix that creates a timeless space in sound.  

David's music has been used in films by independent film director Ray Nomoto Robison, including Sixes and the One-Eyed King, which won the Audience Choice Award at festivals in Miami, Louisville, and more as well as the Best Feature Award at the Rogue Independent Film Festival in Oregon. David has also composed many commercial jingles in use in Europe, Asia, and North America.  

From 2007 to 2024, with twelve albums released to date and songs reaching the top 20 on iTunes New Age & Instrumental charts, David's musical style is perpetually evolving from acoustic guitar to electric guitar, native flute, keyboards, percussion, and more as David's compositions continue to push the limits of style, sound, and originality. His albums are lyrical, and complex and invite the listener to join in the exploration of all the beauty to be found within and without one's own being. David resides in Grants Pass, Oregon, and you can find David performing in many of southern Oregon's fine wineries from March through December every year.

While David mainly performs locally in his home area of southern Oregon, he recently finished his first book: "Signs Along The Path To Awakening" and is available now on Amazon. Being a student of spiritual studies for 40 years he has found himself writing what he would call "pointings." Discoveries that have centered him on his life's path that point to the direction of living from the source and consciousness of Love.
