One of "Toronto's undiscovered gems."
- Chart Magazine

Singer/songwriter David Hein writes high-energy acoustic rock strapped to rapid-fire lyrics and a truckload of soulful heartache. Known for his catchy hooks and solid songwriting, Hein's music and infectuous live energy have earned him comparisons to Blue Rodeo, Counting Crows, John Mayer and Dave Matthews. Hein's songs are urban short stories about lost loves, lost travelers and lost time but paired with open, optimistic promises of change.

"The night ended with the David Hein Band, playing sweet acoustic guitar... A fine singer songwriter with a good band, sophisticated arrangements, catching melodies. The David Hein Band earned their place in the finals."
- Emergenza.net

The winner of the International House songwriting contest and a finalist in Chart Magazine's Indiestartup contest and Paragon's singer/songwriter contest, Hein and his band have packed venues in both Canada and the USA. Out of hundreds of Toronto bands, they were audience picked to be Canadian finalists in the Emergenza Festival. Hein's music has been played in packed clubs across Ontario and New York, as well as on CBC radio and webradio.

"An incredibly talented guy."
