At the age of twelve, Dave could be found on the floor of his bedroom, learning to play guitar to his brothers’ hand-me-down Beatles albums. He drummed in the school band, and by high school, he'd discovered jazz and fallen in love with the electric and upright bass guitar. Fusion and progressive rock reigned supreme in his album collection as his formative influences included Geddy Lee of Rush, Chris Squire of Yes, and innovative jazz bass superstar, Stanley Clarke.
After years on the road, Dave returned to his hometown, sharing his talents in regional rock acts, as well as local recording studios as a first-call musician, recording on hundreds of recordings with longtime rhythm section partner, the late Todd Cooper.
His latest projects are a concept album that chronicles a mission to Mars to save a beloved astronaut and bass reviews and lessons on his official artist YouTube channel.
