Bio
Hi, I'm Dave, a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist / music director / worship leader in the NYC Metro area. I love, love, love to record. I've played on about 30 CD’s playing drums, upright and electric bass, violin, vocals, guitar, and dulcimer. I spend a lot of time recording in local studios, at church, and in my own studio here in Warwick. I've also had the opportunity to work on some radio and tv ads and jingles, including producing and writing the theme for "Heartfelt", a regular show on QVC. Over the past 19 years, I've had the honor to share the stage or studio with Rufus Reid, Benny Golson, Michael and Randy Brecker, Jon Werking, Harry Miller, Richie Havens, Pete Seger, Spiraling, Nick Jonas, Greg Federico, BD Lenz, HelenaMaria, Josh Dion, the Trenton Symphony, Bill Hybels, Rick Warren, and others. For the past 2 years, my full time work has been serving as the worship pastor at Powerhouse Christian Church in Wyckoff, NJ, where I have the honor to lead and support some truly gifted people. Before college at I.U. in Bloomington Indiana, a cruise ship job playing bass in Hawaii, and my jazz immersion at William Paterson University, I spent my growin' up years in the towns of Lawrenceville and Princeton, NJ.
