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, John Entwistle of the Who, Chris Squire of Yes, and fusion bass superstar, Stanley Clarke. Before he was 21, Dave was playing for thousands as a successful touring musician.
After years on the road, Dave now devotes his time to creating content for his "Dave Plays Bass" video series along with session work and his own solo projects.
His latest is 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.
