Bio

Dave writes the band's material. He played guitar in bands as a teenager but abandoned the guitar and music for a few years before taking up sax. This has been his main instrument for a number of years - including playing in Five Guys Named Schmo in Sydney, Toast and Halapeno in Byron Bay. A couple of years ago he decided to go back to where he started as a kid and write and play blues. "I was jamming with some people and picked up a guitar for a laugh and realized that the blues music that got me playing in the first place was still deeply part of me - people like Peter Green, the Kings (BB, Freddie and Albert), Mick Taylor. I decided that I had to start writing and playing songs of my own that are inspired by those guys."

A prerequisite for any of Dave's songs is to have a strong rhythm. This is usually the starting point for any song idea.

Dave studied and worked in film and TV for a while - in particular writing scripts. This is where he learned to write and tell stories - a strong aspect of his songs. He is a devotee of American writer Raymond Carver and his ability to create drama in an understated way.
