He has been either director, musical director, arranger or various combinations thereof for nearly 400 theatrical or concert productions across the western U.S. His work as a television composer has earned him 2 Emmy nominations (1 win) for Best Original Music. As a singer/songwriter he has released 8 CD collections of his work, his most recent being the accurately titled "DAVID DUVALL SINGS BROADWAY LOVE SONGS IN A MOSTLY BOSSA NOVA STYLE SUITABLE FOR A SUNSET SNOG ON THE BEACH OR WHEREVER". As a solo artist or with his trio he has performed extensively in California, Oregon, Idaho, Washington and Hawaii - including several appearances at Kenyon Hall — some as the featured artist and often as the pianist/musical director behind Corrick & Hastings, Laurie Clothier, Divalycious and other popular acts. Recently David was among the performers in the Seattle Cabaret Festival (2020 & 2022) and he made his Puerto Vallarta debut at Incanto Vallarta this past April.

"Duvall's singing is excellent and has impressive jazz qualities while still paying respect to the melody and lyrics. [His] warm and friendly voice, his understanding of lyrics, his lightly swinging phrasing and his unique arrangements all uplift the rewarding music, consistently making well-known standards sound fresh and new."
— Scott Yanow, L.A.-based Jazzz Critic and Historian
