plays music sometimes


“Happy Accidents” is out now on Spotify, Apple Music and most popular music streaming services.

Hello friends,

I’m really proud of this new album, it’s called “Happy Accidents”. I recorded it with Jeff Berkley in San Diego and had the pleasure of working with all sorts of wonderful musicians.

I’m going on tour in 2024 around the United States and Canada, so I’d love to invite you to a show. I don’t love social media, and I don’t want following me to be another reason for people to be on it, so I created an email list where I keep in touch with people, share new music, and let them know about new shows that are happening. You can sign up for it below.

Thank you for your support, I look forward to making more music for you and seeing you on the road.

Love,
Dave

Success! You're on the list.

you probably shouldn’t read my blog















you’re still here?










well, let me tell you a secret
























I spent many, many years
























thinking that being a good musician meant
























being like other “good” musicians
























so I compared myself to my heroes
























and tried to sound like them
























and you know what?

















I actually got pretty decent





















at sounding like other people
























but the problem with that
























as you can probably guess
























is I didn’t know who I was
























so in 2020
























I decided to go on a different journey
























to figure out what I sound like
























now instead of listening for how I’m like others
























I listen for how I’m different
























and that
























has made all the difference.
