IMG_8603Dave is a product of Appalachian America. Growing up in a family of musicians, Dave spent his early years listening to old hillbilly tunes and singing in church. Dave’s dad, a fundamentalist Christian Minister, was a hot fiddle player just before World War II. Those old 78 rpm records and photos of his dad’s band were some of Dave’s earliest memories. At the age of nine, Dave received his first guitar and over the next 5 years, Dave mastered 14 musical instruments.

Dave has always been extremely interested in hillbilly, early country and rockabilly music. His cited influences include Roy Acuff, Bill Monroe, Bill Haley and Carl Perkins. His musical style has been equated to Charlie Feathers and has been called “one of the finest rockabilly guitarists in the U.S.”

Dave also owns roots music monster record label Wild Hare Records and has supported many rockabilly acts through the years including historic artists Vernon Taylor, Billy Adams, Roc LaRue, Ron Berry, Joe Penny and Pat Cupp and more. To date, Dave has been heard on over 40 professional music releases and on over 300 songs!

As for live performances, Dave has appeared at many festivals in the US, Europe and Japan over the past 10 years and will be featured on a Nictune Records CD entitled Bop Brothers with Sweden’s Fireball Steven in the Spring of 2012. To support this new release Dave will be appearing with Fireball Steven in Sweden, Japan and select spots in the US during 2012.
