Dave Painchaud on SoundBetter

I want to know what you're trying to communicate and deliver that the way your first heard it in your head. I play and I write - I've played jazz in the village, my legit writing has been played at the Guggenheim and my own recordings have been played on France's FIP. Let's serve the music - your music!

If you need trumpet or flugelhorn in a commercial setting, I'm here to help. Although I started off as a straight ahead jazz player, that evolved and I've since been in numerous horn sections and played a wide variety of music - blues, funk, pop, fusion, avantgarde music... As a trumpet player, being eclectic and flexible is a matter of survival. I have a project studio at home and contribute to projects on a routine basis. Although I often am asked to be a soloist, I relish opportunities to add simple background lines to tracks that will get a lift from the sound of an almost archaic instrument at this point. The main thing, for me as a sideman in these situations, is to make sure you get what you need and I want and to so so in a way that is timely and stress free for you.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

  1. Review by aderhim

    I had the pleasure of collaborating again with Dave, and his contribution was remarkable. His playing added depth and richness to the composition and his professionalism made the collaboration a breeze. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a talented trumpet player for their musical projects.

    Amazing talent, very collaborative and always up for revisions and for adapting to the style of the project. Highly recommended!


Terms Of Service

Although I'll do as many revisions as it takes to get the job right, I usually need fewer than 5. Turn around time is usually a week but could be less depending upon what's required.
