David Henning is an experienced and highly versatile musician who grew up in New York. As a student at Berklee College of Music in Boston, David met guitarist / vocalist Ian Thornley, guitarist Brian Doherty and drummer Forrest Williams. After forming a rock band Big Wreck and several years of gigging in Boston and Cambridge, the band signed to a major label and released its debut album In Loving Memory Of... in 1997. The single "The Oaf" was a major Top Ten hit for the band that year. After the band's breakup in 2002, David moved to Los Angeles where he reconnected with a lot of his music industry friends and continued as a session musician and touring bassist. One of those strong bonds was his fellow bassist and friend Dug Pinnick of King's X, who asked him to record on his album "Strum Sum Up". While touring as a rock bassist most of his life, David often goes back to his roots in Jazz / Soul / R&B on both upright & electric bass and remains a very active L.A. session musician.
