David "Raven" Stowell is Toyboat's keyboardist and has been involved with music since high school, where he had access to an ARP 2600 synthesizer and modest tape equipment. At the same time, he played in several local bands, eventually joining a pop music ensemble at his college as bassist/keyboardist. With this group, he recorded several projects at a local studio, including a 45. After college, he continued playing in Chicago area bands, but also took up an interest in production and engineering. Eventually, he was able to build a computer-based recording system, in which he produced several CDs.

In 2009, he produced Toyboat's debut CD, which was released at the Ohio Valley Filk Festival that year. In addition to producing the CD, he also played organ on two tracks, "Sunset Boulevard" and "Uplift", and Mellotron on "Roman Wall Blues". In 2010, he was invited to participate in the band's "Tomboat" show at Windycon, which led to him being asked to join the band on a full time basis.
