David Van Pelt on stage with Divine Ascension

David Van Pelt is a virtuoso keyboardist from Melbourne Australia best known for his work with both the international touring melodic metal band 'Divine Ascension' and prog rockers 'Acolyte'. David uses the Korg Kronos to create hauntingly ethereal soundscapes which provide the perfect foundation for the searing analog leads and effects provided by his ARP Odyssey and the RK-100S synthesizers.

Musically, David draws inspiration from bands such as Deep Purple, Rainbow, Pink Floyd, Europe and Stratovarius as can be heard in his 70s inspired sound set and neoclassical soloing style. 
His keyboard heroes include Jens Johansson (who he recently had the honour of sharing the stage with while touring Europe), Rick Wakeman, Jon Lord, Mic Michaeli and Keith Emerson.
