David was the Wisconsin Singer Songwriter Series (WSSS) 2016 song contest winner with his song "Singing with the Radio". He is described as a singer with a “beautiful, soul-stirring voice,” “A professional whose artistry is so wonderfully displayed through lyrics, style and musical emotionalism”. His original compositions have been called “joyful, sensitive, moving, healing and comforting.” His performances regarded as “both inspirational and motivational”. His music comes off as extremely genuine with a deep purpose to every song.
Opening - Curt Joa
Curt Joa From Kohler, Wisconsin is looking forward to his first Coffee House appearance. Curt says, “For me, songwriting is a long process of trial and error, letting old thoughts out and new ones in, playing my guitar and singing to myself (and sounding ridiculous). I like it when I can make a real connection with the audience by coming up with some small, descriptive detail.”

2015 Shepherd Express "Best of Milwaukee's" finalist, Derek Sallmann, brings a youthful mix of folk and pop to a range of classics from the 60's up through today. His arrangements bring fresh charm to each piece while remaining faithful to the heart of each song. In addition, Derek also writes his own originals. His album, "All Seasons," comes across as honest, simple and catchy.
Opening - Mulldoon
Muldoon is an eclectic four-piece playing original music with elements of folk, punk, blues, country, and rock n' roll. Imagine an acoustic guitar being wildly finger-picked over a bouncing bass groove, backed by a custom built "jazz-style" drum kit, and led by a soulful female singer. The music is a twist on 1960's rock n' roll, but limited to an acoustic guitar to keep the music mellow, twangy, and rich. Think Violent Femmes meets Nirvana Unplugged with Bob Dylan and Nancy Sinatra sharing the microphone. Think the Kinks with Janis Joplin singing lead. Think Fionna Apple backed by the Pixies using acoustic guitars. We call it "folk punk".
