Hailing from Camrose, Alberta, Canada, David Andrew Wiebe is a multi-talented guitarist, vocalist and songwriter.

He grew up in Takarazuka, Hyogo, Japan, where he went to public school from kindergarten to grade eight, and became fluent in the Japanese language.

When Wiebe was 13, his father crashed his motorcycle into the side of a transport truck. He was in a coma for about 10 days, but ultimately passed away. It was then that the Wiebe family made the decision to move back to Canada.

At 17, Wiebe began learning guitar at a ferocious rate, and his guitar teacher, Jason Johnson, says he surpassed him within two lessons!

In 2006, Wiebe released his first solo album, Shipwrecked… My Sentiments. During production, his cousin Mitchell took his own life. It was already a tumultuous time for Wiebe, who was feeling disillusioned with multiple band projects all ending in shambles.

After a long hiatus, he returned with a series of singles, including Fragments, City Lights, Don’t Wait Too Long, Hope, Waves and Your Eyes Give It Away from 2016 to 2017.

In June 2019, he officially released his long-anticipated EP, No Escape.

David Andrew Wiebe

David Andrew Wiebe is quite simply one of the best guitar players I’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing the stage with. Witnessing his improvisational skill first hand has been a particularly unparalleled joy for me, over the past decade. In the studio, forget ‘stumping’ him – I don’t think he’s ever felt slightly uncertain about what he wants to play on a track. But he’s also willing to try anything until it sounds right to you. My only worry about Dave is that, now that I’ve told you about him, it’s possible that he may become a bit too busy.
