When doing interviews, there is one question that Dave struggles to answer: “What do you sound like?” - It’s not that he has created a new genre, it’s just that he likes to do lots of different things. He can be folk, blues, rock, pop, country and even a bit jazzy at times. He’s recently coined the phrase “genre fluid” or “pan-genre” and jokes that his songs like to be referred to as “them” or “they” instead of “he” or "she”. Lyrically, he tries to tell stories, and often they are very personal. He really does wear his heart on his sleeve.
Basically, Dave isn't one of those stylish, good-looking singers.
He just does his music and hopes that people listen and he treats those who do like they’re real humans rather than just statistics that he can use to impress people.
