Dave Doll has a sixth sense; a musical sense that pairs words and melodies together to form a signature style driven by raw emotion.

Dave’s musical past begins at age three and includes thirteen years in Drum and Bugle corps, four years in District, Regional and State ensembles, a B.A. in music performance, and the front man for three rock bands.

College was a great source of diversity for Dave, playing in rock bands, jazz bands, even a show band fronted by musical legend, Bobby Mercer. College was also the first time Dave began playing his original songs in front of captive audiences. The coffeehouses surrounding the college campus allowed Dave to hone his live show, a show which is characterized by balls-to-the-wall energy, a brash and witty sense of humor and a barrage of original songs.

A native of the Lehigh Valley, Dave is recognized as the leader of the former band Paradigm, a ten-year performer with the Bobby Mercer Road Show, and most recently, as a progressive and aggressive solo rock act. He has opened for bands such as the Gin Blossoms and Third Eye Blind, and has won many accolades including the 2006 Lehigh Valley Acoustic Competition and numerous regional Battle of the Bands contests.

Nine years of professional dedication to The Martin Guitar Company has also led Dave to a greater understanding of the guitar from not only a technical standpoint, but also artistically and aesthetically. To him, the instrument is more than just an accompaniment to his voice; the guitar is its own voice. Dave is so dedicated to the instrument and quality of its sound, that he now builds and plays his own custom guitars, along with his prized Martins.

Dave has been inspired by the melodic song writing of alternative bands such as Toad the Wet Sprocket and R.E.M and by the technical prowess of guitar virtuosos Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and John Petrucci. Through these musical influences, he has created his own fusion of guitar-driven progressive rock that has been described as “using the guitar’s fingerboard in its entirety” and “a style so different from anyone else that one can’t help but take notice.”

Combine intense and unyielding vocals with “take-notice” guitar playing and you have the artist that is Dave Doll.
