Hailing from the music helm of the southwest, Arkansas Dave will release his self-titled debut album on April 20 with BIG Indie Records. Arkansas Dave's debut album features a variety of influences including blues, rock and indie and features 13 tracks. The self-taught musician recorded the album in only eight days at Muscle Shoals' infamous Fame Studios where legendary musicians such as Will McFarlane, Clayton Ivey and Bob Wray all recorded music.
Arkansas Dave may be releasing his debut record but he's no stranger to the performing scene, having performed on several stages ranging from Austin to overseas in Hamburg, Germany. He'll be hitting the road again in support of his newest effort, starting out in Little Rock, Ark. on Feb. 6. His late winter tour with several spring and early summer tour dates will conclude on June 22 in Switzerland. Top festivals he's billed on include the Folk Alliance International conference in Kansas City, Miss. More dates are to be announced later.
Arkansas Dave previously drummed for the band Guitar Shorty, The Hard Pans and Mickey White, among others. His experience with musical instruments began when he was just five years old and he began playing drums. His guitar-playing began when he turned 12.
