ABOUT DAVE LAURENCE
He's folksy, but rock solid. He's soft with a hard edge. He's eclectic, yet familiar. He's unpretentious, but confident. He buys his stage clothes in thrift shops. He's Dave Laurence, and if you don't know him, you should.
A native of Portland, Maine who now calls Oklahoma City home, Dave combines rock, jazz, country, folk, and blues influences with his thoughtful insights on love and life, sometimes infused with the dry humor that comes from his New England roots. Dave's third studio album, Right Here, was released in September 2017. His previous releases include Analog Soul (2015) and Every Lonesome Road (2012), as well as a single, It's Not About You (2016).
Dave's work as a musician dates back to high school garage bands starting in 1977. He began his solo acoustic career in 1987. In addition to his acoustic guitar skills, Dave is an excellent bassist, and he also plays keyboards, mandolin, harmonica, percussion, and other instruments. He enjoys playing and recording with other musicians when time permits.
Dave has performed at the Woody Guthrie Folk Music Festival, and has also been a support act for legendary Nashville songwriter Glenn Douglas Tubb. His plans for 2018 include yet another release, and travels from Mexico to Maine.
