Comments

Dave starting playing guitar at the age of 9 after hearing the Cream song 'Sunshine of your love'. From there he listen to Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Who and other great rock bands from the 70's. Into the 80's and 90's bands such as ACDC, Iron Maiden, ZZ Top, Metallica, Anthrax, Korn, Pantera, Megadeth and Sepultura. Also in that period Dave listen to RHCP, Bob Marley, Sublime, Blue note Records (Jazz), John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Snoop Doggy Dog, Cypress Hill, Ice Cube and Ice T. If it was hard edge, it was good. In 2003, he purchased a Zoom PS02 digital recorder and some guitars and started recording original songs. Within a period of 6 months, he had recorded over 18 songs. In 2005, he headed over to Sydney, Australia from New Zealand to seek further experience as a song writer. Found a job as a guitar tech and started recording instrumental rock songs. By 2008, he had amassed over 80 recordings of different genres such as hip hop, drum and bass, speed metal, etc.
