David Gogo is set to release his new acoustic Cd in September 2006. This will be his
Acoustic Cd Release Tour (Solo) for his brand new Cd “Meanwhile Back At The Ranch”.
He has been down in Nashville writing with some of the best songwriters in the business
including; Gary Nicholson, who has written #1 hits for the Dixie Chicks, Garth Brooks,
Delbert McClinton and many other; Tom Hambridge (George Thorogood, Johnny Winter,
Susan Tedeschi) and Colin Linden.

Born in Nanaimo, British Columbia, David received a ukulele at age 4 and his first guitar
at age 5. Encouraged by his parents throughout his childhood, the guitar began to
captivate him. By the age of 16 Gogo was working steadily as a professional musician.
His interest in the blues could be considered unusual for a teenager in the early 1980’s.
Nonetheless, David was drawn to the emotional power and raw depth of such
performers as Howling Wolf and Son House.

Things really fell into place for Gogo when the now legendary guitarist Stevie Ray
Vaughan arrived on the musical scene. Finally, David had discovered someone with
whom he could truly relate! Vaughan summed up everything that Gogo aspired to be.
David soon had the chance to meet the Texas guitar icon, who encouraged Gogo to
pursue and commit to become a serious blues artist. Shortly thereafter he formed a band
called The Persuaders. Quickly Gogo and his band mates began making a name for
themselves across Western Canada and they jumped from an after school project to
opening for such legendary blues acts as Albert Collins and the Icebreakers.

After a European tour supporting the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Gogo signed a solo deal
with EMI/Capitol Music. Although leaving his band was difficult, he realized his destiny
was unfolding before him. In just a few short months Gogo was suddenly performing on
stage with his idols B.B. King, Otis Rush, Blues Traveler and many others at the
prestigious Montreaux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and guesting on Tom Cochrane's
"Mad Mad World" album. He also found time to write material for his upcoming debut.
The self-titled album was released to critical acclaim and garnered David a Juno
nomination for Best New Artist.
