And there's certainly an abundance of life experience to pull from. HAERLE's father Martin emigrated from Germany to pursue a dream of working in the country music industry and co-founded the independent label CMH Records, setting up shop in the garage and side room of the family home in Los Angeles. David's maternal grandparents co-owned the first full time country music radio station in Nashville, WENO. The King of Country Music, Roy Acuff, took DAVID onstage at the Grand Ole' Opry before a full house when he was 9 years of age.
After picking up the guitar at age 13, DAVID played in a couple rock and alternative new wave bands during the 80's, before becoming a music agent at International Creative Management. Then his father Martin passed away suddenly and at just 24 years-old, DAVID took over the family business and has served as president of CMH Records, now CMH Label Group, ever since. Making music took a back seat to running the label, but HAERLE never stopped playing guitar and in recent years, he has returned to his passion of performing and releasing original music. His debut album Garden of Edendale was released in Summer 2018. His sophomore album, Death Valley, will be out Spring 2020 and "Go Do That With Sharon" is the first taste of this new project.
