A full time self-employed musician since July 2007, Dave graduated from being a guitarist who sang backing vocals to a stage centre singer/songwriter in October 2010, when he released his debut EP with a sellout show at the Camden Barfly.
Since then, he has been on countless UK tours, a handful of Irish tours and even a tour in Australia. He has released eight self produced EP’s and one full length album "Love, Life, Loss and Tea" (produced by Nigel Pulsford of Bush fame) on his own record label Cheeky Chimp Records. He has sold out venues all over the UK and played hundreds of house shows in living rooms, conservatories, gardens, kitchens and even in a shed.
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.
