I packed up my entire life and moved to Nashville...
I got lucky. As fast as I landed here in 2008, I scored a coveted seat on the all-star ADN songwriting team with Sara Majors, Kat Korak, John Conley, Corey Lee Barker, Larry Wayne Clark, Don Goodman, Jeff Pearson and Karen Staley. Writing on this team has sharpened my skills and put me elbow to elbow with some of Nashville's finest musicians, producers, writers and artists.
My days are spent co-writing with both established artists and the next generation of up and coming musical artists. My evenings are spent at Dave's Cave (my private studio) which has become quite popular. Film & TV music is usually my focus when I'm writing and recording my own projects in the cave. But every so often I'll open Dave's Cave for a 3 day weekend block with a unknown singer/songwriter. The goal is to co-write, track and finish 3, mostly acoustic songs by Sunday. Stay, sleep, eat, write, track, I'll even chauffeur you to and from the airport.
Music made at Dave's Cave is always organic and real. The musicians at the Cave are top quality, "A" call Nashville session musicians. The vibe is home, all the way, get it done right, simple and excellent.
