Guitar & Vocals
Dave has always had music interest from early age thanks to singing Welsh parents. He came to guitar relatively late, about 16! Typical teenager as pop music became all consuming! Always did impressions of school friends and telly personalities, including singers. Started gigging around 18 with a dear friend who'd inspired him when he'd seen him play drums and guitars at his folks house, Sunday afternoons!
A seed was sewn. He bought a cheap Strat copy and started to learn popular tunes of the day! Joe Jackson, XTC, Bill Nelson, Police featured predominantly! Composed tunes for a friend who wrote songs in late eighties and gigged pubs in midlands area. Bass playing then took over for a number of years as he thought different discipline would be good idea! It was! Thoroughly enjoyed it! Joined a few bands on bass for a while. He came back to acoustic guitars in early nineties and started doing solo shows. He loves singing and playing all sorts of tunes.
Dave joined Eagles tribute band Desperado in 2007.It was a good experience and gained chance to emulate the 3 voices from the Eagles. In the mean time he’s just been gigging hard with mix a of jazz, soul, swing, rock, pop etc. and developed what he’s termed as 'nose bass'.
