David Glen Eisley (born September 5, 1952) is an American rock singer, songwriter, and actor.
Eisley was born in Los Angeles, California, and is the son of actor Anthony Eisley and Judith Tubbs Eisley; both parents are deceased. While in high school, he played drums for the band Mammoth, an Iron Butterfly cover band. He is most well known for being the lead singer for the AOR bands Sorcery (1980-1983), Giuffria (1983–1988) and Dirty White Boy (1988–1991). His biggest success came with the band Giuffria, when their hit single "Call to the Heart" reached #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1985. David has also appeared in the television shows Beverly Hills, 90210 and 7th Heaven, the movie Action Jackson and has acted in various commercials. His rock ballad "Sweet Victory" gained widespread exposure in 2001 when it was featured in the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Band Geeks". On November 2015, The Ohio University Marching 110 band performed the song when it won the 2015 Student Arrangement Competition.
Before settling into music, Eisley spent much of his early days playing baseball. He eventually reached Double-A for the San Francisco Giants, commuting back and forth between games and club gigs.
