Dave has been writing music since childhood, but only in the last decade or so have his abilities started to shine. He began making home recordings in high school, using two 'boom boxes' to create multi track results. Since then he has experimented with many recording mediums and has acquired performance skills on many instruments. He has played drums, guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, and keyboards in bands over the years, and has always been a singer. For Dave, writing songs has been an important part of accessing and understanding emotions, not unlike the way some people use a journal. Consequently, he has an impressive catalog of music, most of which is very personal and idiosyncratic. Presenting some of this music in commercial form has always been a dream, and Maverick is the first offering of a lot of good music to come.
