WINNER UPDATE: David Llewellyn to Host a Songwriting Retreat

Hailing from the coal mining valleys of South Wales, David Llewellyn grew up with an active imagination and zeal for music. By the age of seventeen, this fervor led him to a life outside of his humble beginnings, and encouraged him to depart from Wales for an exciting musical career. David came to Nashville, Tennessee in 1991, and was signed to a Music Row publisher in 1996. With its roots in Davids upbringing, and its technique developed through his new American experiences, David's songwriting soon caught the attention of many musical peers. Eventually, David began playing notable festivals such as the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, and was the recipient of its coveted "New Folk" award. Davids self-titled LP was released in 2004 to critical acclaim and radio attention, and his 2007 release "Limited Edition" quickly sold all of its printed copies. In 2008, David won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest's Lennon Award for his folk song "Take Us Down."

New tracks and improved production are in the works for "Limited Edition" and a full release is expected in the fall. In addition, David is working on a new full length CD. Furthermore, Recently, David recorded a radio show with BBC in Wales. In October, David will host a songwriting retreat in St. Croix in the Virgin Islands.
