Vocal Coach comments from Bob Stoloff
David is an extraordinary singer who demonstrates a potpourri of musicianship skills and innate talent. He is a gifted performer who sings effortlessly with technical power, cogent expression and stylistic conviction. In addition to his superb overall performance, David falls into the category “most likely to succeed” and I don’t say this lightly.
Why I chose David Toole as a Finalist
For these reasons I am choosing David to move ahead as a semifinalist in Voice Council’s Singing Competition.
David Toole's bio
Hello my name is David Toole, I’m a vocalist/songwriter/guitarist/actor from the United States, specifically Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I currently write and perform original music with my band Identity X (www.idxmusic.com
I got my start singing (screaming) along to the albums of early 90’s metal/rock artists (Guns N Roses, Skid Row, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Journey). I continued to grow as a vocalist by performing in bands throughout high school and college and taking an interest in the rock and post hardcore bands of the mid 2000’s (Coheed and Cambria, Atreyu, Alexisonfire, and Funeral for a Friend). Somewhere along the way I eventually figured out what worked and what didn’t!
Being self taught only gets you so far however, so I’ve recently become a student of Estill Voice Training under the direction of Dr. Kim Steinhauer where I continue to grow as a vocalist and learn more about the incredible instrument we all possess!
