David Grissom is an American guitarist who has played and toured with several of America’s leading bands and recording artists.

David is best known for his work with John Mellencamp. While still recording with Joe Ely, Grissom joined the John Mellencamp Band. Following Mellencamp, he played briefly with Will and the Kill, then went on to form the critically acclaimed Storyville with Malford Milligan (vocals), David Holt (guitar), Tommy Shannon (bass) and Chris Layton (drums). David Grissom has since toured with the Allman Brothers and the Dixie Chicks. On May 19, 2007, at a free concert titled “The Road To Austin”, Bobby Whitlock performed his electric version Layla and Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad with dueling guitars courtesy of David Grissom and Eric Johnson. Grissom released his first solo album Loud Music in 2007. He has also recorded sessions, played and toured with a number of other American recording artists, including Buddy Guy, Chris Isaak, Sarah Hickman and Bob Dylan. David recorded his album “Two Thousand Miles” with Owen Temple. In 2009, Grissom released his second solo album “10,000 Feet”, which featured 11 new songs plus an acoustic version of “Good Day For The Blues”, which was originally recorded by Storyville.

Grissom has played PRS guitars for most of his professional career. He played a modified PRS McCarty Trem for over a decade. In 2007, after a 25-year relationship working with Paul on the design and improvement of PRS guitars from a touring/session player’s perspective, his collaboration with Paul Reed Smith resulted in the DGT (David Grissom Trem) signature model. Its innovations include special pickups developed by Grissom, Dunlop 6100-like fretwire, a nitrocellulose finish and two volume knobs to allow the blending of both humbucking pickups. Grissom has noted that this feature was inspired by the sounds Jimmy Page created on the early Led Zeppelin albums.
