Dave was recently selected as a finalist in the “Best Up and Coming Original Tasmanian Act” Category of the 2006 Amplified awards (an annual festival recognising excellence in Tasmanian original music) and in addition, his song “Vindication” was selected for the Amplified festival showcase CD. He has recently supported Queensland act Holloway Street on their Tasmanian tour and at the Tamworth and Gympie festivals. He will see the year out with shows around Sydney and Tasmania and at the Taste of Tasmania Summer Festival in December.

Dave writes melodic acoustic guitar based music melding deep lyrical messages with structured form. His songs characteristically provide observations on life experiences, with an undercurrent of social commentary.

Through an innovate use of custom-made triggers, Dave has mastered a solo performance delivering striking vocals, warm guitars, harmonica and percussive instruments simultaneously. The resulting show is not only pleasing to the ear but also wonderfully different and visually stimulating. Dave’s act is a solid performance, derived from over a dozen years’ experience delivering music live throughout Tasmania and Australia.

Dave's many and varied style influences include Cat Stevens, The Beatles, Radiohead, U2, Crowded House, Simon & Garfunkel, Elton John - and the big Neils - Neil Diamond and Neil Young.
