Dave is an Alberta-based performing singer/songwriter when he is not teaching in his specialised education class.

A Canadian citizen since '86, Dave's family moved to Alberta from Thatcher's England, when many collieries, steel works, and potash mines were shut.

Dave Martin currently lives, works, writes and plays in Fort McMurray, Alberta.
Dave is pro-active when it comes to his development and self-improvement as a musician and as a citizen of this planet.
Dave enjoys: performing live; listening to people's stories; writing songs; helping youth and local charities meet their goals; promoting and hosting open stages; participating in 'Songwriters in the Round'; showing off his horrible English teeth and is a fan of "do-it-your-self' anything.

Dave hosted and organised the music for the Wood Buffalo Country Fair in 2009, and will return to host and organise WBCF in August 2010.

Dave's favourite Sesame Street Character is 'the Count'.
