David Harvey grew up in a musical family, mentored by his father mandolin great, Dorsey Harvey. His interest in mandolin construction, repair and restoration began as a direct result of his father's obsession with the intonation challenges on his 1953 Gibson F-5. Years later Harvey spent a great deal of time with master luthier John Ramsey in Colorado Springs, CO. While in Colorado David also built mountain dulcimers. He honed his skills in all facets of instrument construction and production repairs. After his time in Colorado , David took on an official apprenticeship with a violin builder and eventually opened and managed About Music located in Indianapolis , Indiana . His work there earned him warranty repair and restoration status with all major stringed instrument manufacturers.
After a move to Nashville in 1995 where he took a position at National Guitar Repair, his extraordinary reputation continued to earn accolades throughout the industry. His expertise in repair and setup made him highly esteemed among Nashville 's "A-List" musicians. His clientele includesor has included Chris Thile, Bobby Osborne, Ricky Skaggs, Sam Bush, Buck White, Alan Bibey, Roland White, Hershel Sizemore, Ronnie McCoury, Stuart Duncan, Aubrey Haynie, Mark O'Connor, Alison Krauss, Glen Duncan and many more.
Harvey is also the creator and manufacturer of David's Jubilee Polish, an instrument polish. He has produced the highly acclaimed and IBMA nominated "Moody Bluegrass - A Nashville Tribute to the Moody Blues" for Rounder Records. David's musical career has taken him to the stage and studio with such names as Red Allen, Larry Sparks, Wild Blue, Larry Cordle, Harley Allen and the fabulous Claire Lynch.
