The Short of It
David Seume released his debut album, It Is What It Is, in December 2008. Seume (pronounced “sue me”) wrote and arranged its 11 tracks, recording them in his bare-bones bedroom studio. The release show received media recognition as one of the year’s highlights in Kansas City music, and the album quickly garnered praise from the press — earning him a Best Singer-Songwriter nomination in 2009 from The Pitch.
Since making a splash on the local scene, Seume’s journeyed many miles in his ’82 VW van, playing venues in Austin, LA, and living rooms across the country. Currently, he’s looking for a little piece of land to live the good life – playing in the dirt, working with his hands and making music.
