At the age of ten, Dave could be found on the floor of his bedroom, strumming an acoustic guitar to his brothers' hand-me-down Beatles albums. He drummed in the school band, and by high school, he\'d discovered jazz and adopted the upright bass. Soon after high school, Dave left Virginia to tour with the successful southern rock bands Doc Holliday and Rajun. After years on the road, home called, and returning to Southwest Virginia, he lent his musical talents to leading local bands and recording studios as a first-call bassist. On \'Desire\', his debut album, Dave paints sonic landscapes, reflecting the turbulent times in which he wrote the songs. Fueled by the death of his oldest brother and end of an eleven-year relationship, they weave among genres, from alt rock to power pop, revealing a surprising range of emotions, influences, and musical talents. Dave wrote, performed, produced and recorded all the instruments and vocals, on his latest CD \'Fallen Angel\' with the exeption of guest appearances on a two tracks by the extremely talented Isaiah Osborne (keys) and Jody Ensor (guitar). While the tone of this project took on a heavier, rock vibe; there\'s still an eclectic mix of genres including instrumentals (The Mantra, Lucky Sevens), as well as the jazzy \'Out Of My Mind\'.
