About

Hello, friend!

I’m David. I love to host. It brings me joy to create a welcoming space for you. I do this best by telling stories through music. Whether during a church worship service as we sing the story of the life and love of Jesus Christ, or while you’re driving in your car and listening as I sing about my story, I hope you can more passionately live out your own.

- David

“By blending personal and approachable lyrics with sticky melodies and strong acoustic guitar picking and rhythms, David Belt quickly places himself in close quarters with listeners. It’s in this energetic space where he crafts a memorable event between himself and his audience.

Sourced by his community of friends and family, David’s self-produced debut solo album, “Close Beside”, was released in 2019 and tells the story of God’s nearness in life, marriage, hardship and loss.

In addition to being an emerging singer-songwriter, David is also a passionate worship leader. His enthusiasm about the formational power of music in the corporate worship of the church comes from a joyful and life-long involvement in ministry. With a background of 12 years of family missionary work in the Middle East, over a decade of vocational music ministry in different parts of the US and a graduate degree in Worship Studies, David has gratefully served in various denominational, generational and cultural worship settings. 

David currently serves as the Songwriter Director for Art House North. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife Lauren and their two children, Eleanor and Samuel.
