 A unique mix of musical styles including reggae, blues, country and funk.

Originally from Canberra, Dave moved to Warrnambool 16 years ago to try to become a professional musician (why Warrnambool? We have no idea, but he did know it wasn't going to happen in Canberra). Anyway, after many years practice, a university degree, two kids and many soul destroying jobs, things are coming together. Currently, Dave teaches music in Warrnambool and plays pubs, clubs and weddings to a multitude of drunks with varying degrees of veracity. At the end of 2009, Dave released his first album of original material. 'Easy Street' touches on styles of R'n'B, blues and swing that have inspired him. Dave's second album, 'Hurry Slowly', was launched in November 2012 and explores more musical styles including reggae, blues, country, and a whole heap of 'fonk' including 12 original songs all written by Dave himself. 


Dave has finished writing and is currently in the process of rehearsing his latest album with the infamous rhythm section of Tim Conlan (Bass) and Jon Emry (Perscussion). Dave hopes to begin recording  'Best Foot Forward' at the legendary Yelp Studios in Warrnambool by mid- year and is looking forward to its release by Spring 2016...(March 2016).
