David Caspar shares moving new single 'Lukas'. Listen here
David Caspar self-released his debut album in the beginning of 2022. «Among the Breakers» received a lot of attention of both professionals and other artists in and around Switzerland.

Starting to record his own music while living in southern Spain and releasing his debut album four years later from the Netherlands, David would shortly thereafter return to Switzerland to play shows with his band and attend University.
