THE OFFICIAL SITE
After a busy 2018 which saw an East Coast tour and a cruise to Mexico, Dave plans to stay closer to home this year. He's working on two new albums. A collection of road songs called Wanderlust is due this fall. First, though, he plans to issue an album of newly-recorded versions of favorite songs from the out-of-print 2012 release Every Lonesome Road. Among the featured songs are I Never Drink Before Ten, George, and As The Crow Flies. Dave promises a couple of new songs as well. "I hadn't planned on this," he says, "but people kept asking for the old songs on the East Coast tour last fall. I decided it was time to dust them off and polish them up a bit."
Dave hasn't decided what to call this project, but he hopes for an early summer release.
Dave will be scaling back his live appearances in 2019, but is always open to perform. Contact us to book a show!
