Bio

Dave Elitch first garnered attention with his band Daughters of Mara’s debut album “I am Destroyer” in 2007, but his time touring with the American progressive rock band The Mars Volta in 2009-2010 is what really put him on the map. He has since worked with Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, M83, The 1975, Juliette Lewis, Big Black Delta, as well as many others.

He also conducts master-class lectures worldwide and is a regular in the LA session scene, including performing on film scores for major motion pictures, (most recently “Trolls” and “Logan.”) Over the years, Dave has developed a reputation as THE technique/body mechanic specialist who has helped many of the industries top players as well as educators at his private studio in Los Angeles.
