Dave was born in the Midlands of England.
He got his first guitar when he was ten years old. From the age of fifteen, he performed with local bands in pubs and clubs.
After graduating from the Wolverhampton College of Arts, he was singer / guitarist in the professional pop rock band 'Revolver', and formed after a few years the symphonic rock band Salamander and recorded the successful concept album 'The Ten Commandments'. This has become a collector's item.
The close harmony work of the Eagles and Crosby, Stills and Nash inspired him to form the trio 'Taragon', and toured for three years around folk clubs and festivals in England.
Subsequently, he decided to go solo, and moved to Cornwall, on the Atlantic coast of south west England, where he focused on songwriting and studio work. He also did several European tours and studio sessions with the Celtic folk band 'Saraband', the American singer songwriter Colin Scott, the comic jazz band 'The pigsty hill light orchestra " and the country rock band' Free Spirit '.
In 1981, Dave met his wife Miriam in the Netherlands. He decided to stay there and started playing and singing in the renowned Dutch formation,'The Royal Show Band'.
Over the next six years he must have accompanied almost every Dutch artist regularly with appearances on radio and TV. He also played guitar with 'The Guys and Dolls' on their concerts in Bangkok.
Dave now works primarily as a singer-songwriter / entertainer.
When not touring, Dave can be found in his home recording studio.
Besides music, he makes airbrush paintings, and enjoys a game of darts.
