About David Hannon:
Open-Mic Night at Rock Coffee has been a notorious start for countless local musicians. Tacoma native and Gonzaga University graduate, David Hannon, is no exception, as this is where he was discovered.
Hannon’s musical background contains a little of everything, whether it be the guitar, piano, or the drums. But that’s not all - Dave also plays a little kazoo as a self-proclaimed prodigy. Hannon blames his love for performing on the music bug that runs through his family.
“I feel that music is about community and about love,” says Hannon, “and I want to share that with as many people as I can.”
Though Hannon has only been performing for a few months, he is already working on a full-length album with local musician/producer Logan Heftel and is anxious to make music a full-time career. This is a big decision for Hannon considering it would mean the postponement of starting a job in teaching, which was his focus at Gonzaga.
When Hannon is not performing or working on his album, he is busy working two jobs, Ultimate Bagel and The Old Spaghetti Factory, or training for marathons. He is an avid runner and placed 16th in the Seattle Marathon back in November.
