Biography

David Harvey, grew up surrounded by the music of bluegrass pioneers Red Allen, Frank Wakefield, the Osborne Brothers, and his father, mandolin great Dorsey Harvey. David took up the mandolin at age eleven and hit the road at age 14, touring as a member of the Red Allen band. He soon added guitar and fiddle to his repertoire.

In 1985, David was recruited by bluegrass great Larry Sparks. He spent nearly four years as a member of Sparks' band, the Lonesome Ramblers, and can be heard on two recordings "Gonna Be Movin'" and the now classic, "Silver Reflections". September 2003 Larry Sparks brought David back to the studio, recording a project for Rebel Records celebrating Sparks' 40th. year in bluegrass.

In 1989, David and his wife formed the group Wild and Blue. During the band's 12 year run, they were featured on the Grand Ole' Opry, performed at Ryman Auditorium, played countless bluegrass festivals, recorded five projects, achieved some chart success, awarded SPBGMA's Best New Band in 1992 AND wore out three vans.

Baby Emma came along in 2000 and brought an end to this insanity. David joined forces with Larry Cordle and reinvented the Lonesome Standard Time band. He is featured on the Grammy nominated and IBMA awarded "Murder on Music Row" recording. October of 2001, David found himself sick of flying and missing his family so he left Lonesome Standard Time to form a band for life-long friend and songwriter, Harley Allen.

David and Harley are featured together on the Louvin' Brithers tribute on Universal South. David's production credits include "Moody Bluegrass", a tribute to the Moody Blues, featuring 30 bluegrass artists, soon to be released on Sugar Hill Records. Additional recording credits also include projects with Bryan Sutton, Gail Davies, Jim Hurst and Curtis McPeak. David is a long-time fan and is proud to be a part of Claire Lynch's new band.
