You’ve got to admire a musical artist who gives (to borrow from Lincoln’s most eloquent speech) as if it’s his “last full measure of devotion.”

New Englander-turned-Nashvillian David Petrelli is just such an artist who offers up everything to his listening audience. This soulful pop tenor taps into heartache and lets it flow, delivering lyrics that reveal flaws and scars without hesitation. His sweet effortless tenor voice woven against sweeping piano pop rock call to mind the likes of Billy Joel, Journey and even cult rock hero, Butch Walker.


His recent accolades include being featured as a background vocalist on the award winning "Never Be The Same" album by CCMA Female Artist of the Year, Victoria Banks, as well as being cast as the touring keyboard/piano player for Connie Britton's character, Rayna James, on ABC's hit series, "Nashville".


But David's true home is on stage with his piano, sharing his songs with an audience. Originally from Wethersfield, CT, he first performed professionally as part of the Cape Cod-based a cappella group, Hyannis Sound. A graduate of Boston College, David began molding young musical minds as an elementary school music teacher before enrolling at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. There, he studied Songwriting and Vocal Performance and was chosen as a featured artist performed in the university's exclusive "Singer's Showcase" concert.


A move to Nashville, TN placed him in the Songwriting capital of the Universe, and he hasn't looked back since. In 2011, David released his debut EP entitled, "The Petrelli Project” which has already garnered incredible reviews from hit songwriters and industry pros alike. Whether it's on record or on stage, David Petrelli cheats his audience out of nothing with songs and performances that are emotional, engaging and uniquely his own.
