But who is she?

Talon David presents Heart's Mirage

Talon David was raised by musical parents in Nashville, TN, who introduced her to a vast array of musical styles, including Journey, the Eagles, the Beatles, Cindi Lauper, Barbra Streisand, and the original Broadway cast album of Wicked. Talon loved them all, preferring song over speech any day, but wasn’t to fully use these influences until finally, at 15 years of age, she wrote her first song. When she was 17, she got a call that she had won the GRAMMY Foundation’s Teens Make Music Contest with her song “Deep Snow” and got to attend the GRAMMY Awards in LA that year. Suddenly, her music could be for other people—there were strangers out there that would listen to what she had to sing.


Since then, she has gained a Bachelor of Music from Belmont University, been privileged to perform and record numerous projects with friends and colleagues, most notably her performance as Mary Magdalene on Neal Morse’s prog opera Jesus Christ: the Exorcist, released her debut self-produced/engineered album Miscellaneous in the aftermath of the pandemic, and made the move across the pond to London. 


As division seems to reign supreme, Talon believes music is uniquely capable of uniting people—just as it has in the past—through their shared pain and general hope for a better tomorrow. In her own words, “I want to serve my listeners by giving them a shoulder to cry on, but also letting them know that there are far better things beyond this situation. I want to help modern people grasp the eternal mindset, give them a bit of that transcendent essence in my music, realizing that no matter the extent of pain, there is always hope.”


Talon looks optimistically toward the March 2024 release of her second self-produced album Pure Imagination, an exploration into what it means to dream in adulthood.
