Pop Magazine called New York based pop singer/songwriter David Kui D’Alessio an “artist in a class of his own.” Understanding his background we see why: This Hawaiian-born, Arizona-raised, now-Manhattanite crafts material as absorbing, diverse and appealing as his history. Since his initial release, he has toured extensively including opening shows for Colbie Caillat, Brett Dennen, Missy Higgins and Lifehouse.
Closing the cycle between projects, D’Alessio followed up in 2022 with the critic’s song-of-the-summer, “Nowhere Else I Wanna Be.” The song was called “The absolute essence of summer” and “three and half minutes of sunshine,” and again marked a new page in D’Alessio’s expanding repertoire.
Of his continued exploration into the world of pop, D’Alessio muses “Why should we expect less from artists than to express everything they feel at any given time, and in unique ways? We go through all kinds of experiences, and art ideally should provide a space for us to share a wide palette of the human experience. That to me is the reason to be a musician and
artist. The freedom to feel and express every emotion without reservation.”
Some of D’Alessio’s accolades include song placements with Hallmark, Freeform, and NBC.
