David Lizmi is a bass player and percussionist based in New York City and New York's Hudson Valley region.  Born in Italy to a Morroccan mother and a Lebanese father, David grew up in Houston, Texas and received his undergraduate degree in Music Business/Management from The Berklee School of Music in Boston.  He is a versatile and accomplished player of the electric and upright bass, bass synth, and Gimbri (a traditional North African gut-string bass), and supplements these talents with his fluency in an eclectic array of non-Western hand percussion instruments.

David has recorded and toured internationally with artists such as George Ezra, MS MR, Sondre Lerche, and Fun., and has performed live on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Saturday Night Live, and The Late Late Show with James Corden.  He is also part of the New York-based Moroccan music collective Innov Gnawa, nominated for a Grammy in 2017 for Best Dance Recording. 

When not traversing the lower end of the frequency spectrum, David serves as Music Content Coordinator for PremiumBeat Music Library and produces chopped-n’-screwed remixes under the moniker Spicy Legato.
