"Album Review"

Dave Coffin and Mike Mathieu: The Dave and Mike EP “Subtle smiles reached subtley across my lips with the feel-good, introspective, roots-rock melodies. Think Edwin McCain meets Ellis Paul.” 5/5 stars. - Skope Magazine

Fumbling In The Dark


Feeling a bit camera shy


Rural Maine native and Boston based singer/songwriter, Dave Coffin, is all heart and soul. See him live, and you'll understand.

But after you do, it may come as a surprise that he started his music career as the lead singer for a hardcore group. "I definitely didn't know how to sing back then, and as I taught myself how to breathe and how to control my tone, the abrasive nature of that music started to appeal less to me." These days, Dave's music is mellow, but if you listen hard enough you can still hear those harder roots in the emotional quality of the meaning behind his songs, and the heartfelt performance.

For the past two years, Dave has been brewing a pot of 11 songs, using the most organic ingredients he can find. The finished product is his debut album entitled "Fumbling in the Dark" scheduled for release on March 27th, 2007. "I produced the whole thing myself, so it's sure to be homegrown." The roster includes New York based lead guitarist Matt Rooney, bassist Rich Salvatore, and drummers Jonas Westbrook and Butch Gage. The whole album was recorded mostly in his and his band-mates apartment in Boston, Massachusetts.

The album covers a range of topics, never quite settling on a theme. "These songs were written over span of two years, but there has always been somewhat of a coherency to the songs I write."

The album starts off strong and ends strong, much like his live shows. Often playing solo, he has the capability to captivate an audience and even silence a loud bar. He'll be hitting the road in support of "Fumbling in the Dark" with a full band in April.
"Fumbling in the Dark" will be available on March 27th, 2007 from Dave's website (www.davecoffinonline.com), iTunes, and local stores in Boston, Massachusetts.
