David Alan Thornton

Music & Wordsmith

As a writer, David Alan Thornton has been called "too open-minded for the Midwest and too open-hearted for New York." As a performer, his "soulful vocal stylings compliment confessional lyrics that border on literary greatness."

DAT moved to NYC in 2010 to be part of the BMI Lehman Engel Music Theatre Workshop.  He has since written and produced the "David Alan Thornton Versus" cabaret series, composed two songs for Bill Coyne's "Muse Match" project, and presented his original musical "Little Bitters". In 2013, he recorded his first full-length album "Spokedog", following it with his sophomore project "Lady Monday" in 2015. He has been selected as Playhouse Creatures Theatre Company's 2016-2017 Playwright Fellow, developing "Lady Monday" as a full-length rock opera. 

He performs in NYC with his band and solo.
