Notable Career Milestones: David began promoting his music online in 1995 - an "internet age" before iTunes (or even Google) existed. In 1997, David penned the first edition of his book "How to Promote Your Music Successfully on the Internet" which went on to become the authoritative work (and college textbook) of its time on the topic of online music marketing. David's first International press came in August 2002, as the opening interview for BusinessWeek magazine's "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star," an article about independent artists forging their own path without a major record label. In 2003, David founded Whisperings: Solo Piano Radio, the very first Internet radio broadcast to feature solo piano music exclusively. In July 2006, The Wall Street Journal included David on their "New Media Power List" of producers "being catapulted into a position of enormous influence." In 2007, David's album Adoration: Solo Piano Hymns became his first #1 charting album. In 2012, David was added to the "Official Kawai Piano Artist" roster and in 2018, upgraded to Shigeru Kawai Piano Artist. In 2018, David was interviewed by Rolling Stone Magazine for an article about the "Lucrative World of Solo Piano Music." In 2019, David's arrangement of Greensleeves was recorded and released by world renowned Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang. In 2021, Hal Leonard, the world's largest music publisher, released "The David Nevue Piano Sheet Music Collection," a career-spanning songbook of David's most popular works.

The Why

"I am a seeker - seeking after my God, striving to serve Him, to understand His ways and His Word. my music is a soundtrack for that journey." - David Nevue



On Becoming "Successful"

"For every 20 things I tried, one worked. Maybe. Be willing to try and fail, over and over. That's the only way to discover the ONE THING that will advance you to the NEXT opportunity... to try and fail. Repeat, never stop. Find joy in the process and be thankful always." - David Nevue, Sept. 2019



What I am constantly reminding myself...

"I am at my best at the piano when I stop thinking.
When I stop thinking, my heart finds joy in the playing.
When my heart finds joy in the playing, my spirit sings...
When my spirit sings, God's grace finds me."
- David Nevue, March 5th, 2022
