David Kulund is a singer-songwriter living in Charlottesville, Virginia. David sang and played guitar in popular bands in New York City and Boston. His rock band, the Soft Explosions, was hyped as “the best band in New York, bar none, based on their live shows” (Allmusic) and were New York winners of Little Steven’s Underground Garage Battle of the Bands. Their EP, Ride Between the Eyes, was released on Canarsie Records, while his Boston band, Honeyglazed, released the Trouble with Girls on Curve of the Earth Records. 

He played major music festivals like SXSW and New York City’s All Points West. David’s bands performed at premier venues like NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom and Webster Hall, sharing bills with artists like Weezer and the Brian Jonestown Massacre.  He has played at the Kennedy Center.

David’s song “Too Late To Say You’re Sorry” performed by his group Treasure Maps was featured in the season 2 premiere episode of the popular Epix TV series “Bridge and Tunnel” directed by Edward Burns.

David also writes and performs children’s music. He was a member of the award-winning Dream Jam Band in New York.

In 2015, David returned to his hometown of Charlottesville to play both adult and children’s music. For adults, he performs solo shows and also teams with some of the hottest players in town to play a rocking blend of harmonized originals and covers at local clubs and vineyards. David also plays in a 60’s girl group tribute band The Gooey Gumdrops with Matty Metcalfe, Michael Clem and Justin Storer. They play the fabulous hits of the Ronettes, Shangri-La’s, Crystals, Supremes and more.

David has played at Chisholm Vineyards, Glass House Winery, Keswick Vineyards, Stinson Vineyards, Grace Estate, Cunningham Creek Winery, Hark Vineyards, Albemarle Ciderworks, Carter Mountain Orchard, Thatch Winery, 12 Ridges Vineyard, Omni Homestead Resort, Starr Hill, Southern Music Hall and other bars and clubs in the Charlottesville area.
