"SMILE” is the debut record from Los Angeles native and Seagull player, David Rosales. This uniquely honest effort blends Folk, Country and Gospel with a distinct and deep Southwest tone. With the help of his trusty 11 year old Seagull Artist Mosaic guitar, David was able to capture a romantically reflective narrative of love, loss and life after.  "The sound has really opened up over time and the tones have gotten warmer. On this record it really worked with what I was creating; it recorded well with one live mic set-up. I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Seagull."
