Sometimes introspective; always driven by a wider social conscience and a sense of human fragility. Touching on topics that tear at the heart of the human condition (loneliness, love and loss, homelessness/poverty, social exclusion).
Music offered as a little healing for troubled times - a solace for the soul. Despite a classical conservatoire background, always a firm believer that there's only two kinds of music: the good kind and the 'other' kind! Somewhere out there, where contemporary folk has its little excursion with fusion and on to neo-classical crossover, perhaps, you'll find a style definition for Dave's output. Still, trying to pin down a musical style in words is a bit like painting rainbows in black and white (of which, Judee Sill's reference to Pythagoras, Bach and Ray Charles as her main musical influences - and 'Country-Cult-Baroque' as her style definition! - deserves more than a little admiration). Proof enough that it's always best to let the music speak for itself! Artist Website: www.nightsongsmusic.net
