Bio

Dave Laros’ music is rooted in country/blues and emulates the versatility, and tone, of the following artists:
Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. While their influences are apparent, Laros' melodic hooks combined with his, sometimes, unsettling poetic imagery distinguishes him as a singer-song writer with his own indelible voice.

Dave spent the mid-90's in Nashville, accompanying local musicians in the studio and on national tours. In 2000 Mr. Laros made the move to NYC and formed The Dave Laros Band. They were a 4 piece band performing original music all written and arranged by Laros. The band had regular slots in several venues throughout NYC including The Continental, The C Note and The Luna Lounge. In 2002, Dave teamed up with a producer/friend/drummer and recorded 6 tracks that emphasize Laros's pop-sensibility as a writer and also feature his Billy Joel influenced piano chops. In 2004, Dave was fortunate enough to record with the emerging producer Seth Rothchild from the band Gingersol. He had a unique understanding of the sound Dave was after, and used his intuition to capture its essence. This resulted in a 4 track E P with a scarlet, melodic tone, which, according to many listeners, mirrors aspects of Elliott Smith and John Lennon. In late 2005, Dave relocated to Los Angeles. He now either performs solo around or outside the city accompanying his own vocals on piano, harmonica and guitar or with his band and is constantly writing new material fusing his country blues music roots in with his eclectic tastes of rock and roll.
