Henry David Thoreau said — “How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.” Dave’s music is a reflection of his life — complicated, diverse and rich. His new album “Stay Beautiful” is a collection of memories from a life well lived, and built on the foundation of someone who has played well over 1,000 shows in his lifetime.
