David Kerrison was born in Brighton - UK His musical interests were suppressed at school. Only later did
he realize that his preference for discords, over concords, was the major reason his school music teacher graded him bottom of the class. His interest in guitar did not take hold until he first saw Robert Fripp
play guitar with King Crimson. Essentially self taught he spend most of his early days just listening to records and trying to emulate the famous guitarists of the time. He soon realized that he preferred not to try and copy his friends, by simply playing as fast as possible, but rather he tried to find a more melodic approach based on feeling. After hearing Paul Kossoff
he knew that he was not alone. At the age of 19 he joined a band called Buzz and played professionally for 5 years; and even released a record under the Polydor
Label. From the first day of recording at the Marquee Studio
in Wardour Street, London, his desire to have his own studio took hold. In those days equipment was very expensive and had few facilities. This led to experimentation with multiple tape recorders and essentially learning electronics so that he could build his own synthesizers and effect pedals. Despite the pressures of gigging 3 or 4 nights a week he still found time for other interests including philosophy and martial arts. Eventually he became disillusioned with the Musical Industry (nothing has changed) and he stopped playing for many years in order to pursue other interests. During this time he never stopped listening to music. In 2002 he was asked to play live as a guest in his friends band called Bro. The magic returned and before long he co-formed the band called Moonshine. As the only guitarist in the band he found the demands to play rhythm and lead at the same time a challenge. However it was one he really enjoyed. Technology had also moved on and the ability to use computers meant that the creative frustrations experienced of his earlier years could now be satisfied. This resulted in building the Moving Waves Studio
. As he undertook all the research, design and construction work himself the project took almost 12 months to complete. Using his knowledge of computers he could realize a high quality studio that previously would have been prohibitively expensive.
