Little Davey & The Rolling 88's
The forest was alive with music last week when David Lockwood performed on his Baby Grand for the Nature Preschool at Heart Centered Mulit-Age!
David Lockwood has played for over thirty-five years in the greater New England area with the Attractions, Raccoon Beach, Little Davey and the Aberrations, and various freelance duos and trios, sharing the stage with Bonnie Raitt, Joe Lovano, and Jeff Pevar among others. As a solo singer/pianist he covers a wide range of material from jazz standards to classic pop tunes and one hit wonders to his own songs. In favorable weather, he travels with his baby grand on a trailer and performs outdoors as Little Davey & The Rolling 88’s.
David has recorded three albums of solo piano music, an album of original instrumental compositions with Raccoon Beach, and in 2009 Lucky Me, an album of twelve original “grown-up” songs which received airplay around the country. Hailed by Randy Newman as “a really good record,” Lucky Me finished the year on the Roots Music Report Top Folk albums of 2011 at # 45. Modern Love, his 2013 album of original songs inspired by essays in the New York Times column of the same name was successfully funded through Kickstarter and has been enthusiastically supported by Dan Jones, the column’s editor: “I find these songs as entertaining and soulful as the essays themselves.”
