David Nyman is the youngest member of the Crimson Leaf team. A native of Sweden, he developed a very early interest in music, picking up the keyboard by the tender age of 8. It was the acquisition of an electric guitar in his early teens, however, that truly ignited his passion for making music. At first David concentrated on developing his skills as a metal guitarist, but as the years passed by, he grew increasingly interested in other genres and in other instruments. In late 2013 he took a his first creative leap into the world of creating soundtracks for computer games and quickly made a number of terrific contacts in the indie gaming field. Highly driven, he says that his goal is to get his music into as many games as he can. “It’s a journey I’m truly enjoying. I’m meeting interesting people, having a blast composing, and learning a lot.”In addition to his work on Crimson Leaf, David recently created the music for Just Beneath The Skin 3D, an RPG / adventure game.
