“...Taps hopeful, bluesy melodies and reverses lyrical expectations at every turn... exudes a brand of humane charm that sets him apart from every other songwriter you’ll see this year.”

Dave is a wanderer: He spent a summer working the local chuck wagon set beneath Wyoming's Grand Tetons; taught Environmental Education in South Dakota's Black Hills; conducted 3 week treks with under-served youth across southern Idaho; and explored the ruins and culture of Central America. Music finally pulled him back to the New England folk scene where he completed his first CD, "The Burn of Summer." The album enjoyed regular airtime local stations, and brought selection as a finalist for Mountain Stage's emerging artists. Dave's second album, "Gilding the Lilies" (2011) was recorded with the assistance of Lloyd Thayer, as well as lead-playing and production of Jared Fiske of Fiske and Herrera.

Dave also continues a yearly pilgrimage to the Kerrville Folk Festival, in the core of the Texas Hill Country, where he finds inspiration and community among his fellow vagabonds and troubadours. 
Currently, Dave can be found touring various pockets of New England, and is occasionally "sighted" (generally on Thanksgiving weekend ) with the Bigfoot Research Organization, a loosely arranged, crypto-musical quartet. For reasons understood by only the most passionate, the BRO maintained a myspace account for 5 years despite relentless and at times severe scientific contempt. This site has recently been put to pasture by an unknown adversary.
