Folksinger, Songwriter, Recording Artist, Social Activist.... Dave Hawkins has spent more than 25 years performing his special brand of Americana/Folk music throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe. He has more than 13 recordings to his credit and five solo CDs in the past 20 years. Both this CD and his previous release, Hotel DeVille were under consideration for Grammy Nominations. Dave has piqued the interest of those in the Nashville Music Scene and in Europe. Dave has recorded and performed with some of the finest people in the music world today: Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Sam Bush, Aoife Clancy, Joanie Madden (Cherish the Ladies),Tom Roady, John Whelan and many others. Musically he has been called a 'male Nanci Griffith' and been compared to the likes of Harry Chapin, John Prine and Steve Goodman. These are extremely high compliments that Dave finds 'humbling, indeed!' The freelance U.K. journalist John Whishaw described Dave as '...an Americana artist with his Irish roots showing.' In concert Dave enjoys connecting with his audience though song, stories and anecdotes. Whether performing for 2000-plus fans or in a 25-seat coffeehouse, Dave's easy-going style and laid-back delivery always come through. Dave's newest CD is MANCHESTER MORNINGS (February 2005). Recorded at Mountainside Audio Labs, Nashville, the album is produced by Bil VornDick, who has produced/engineered multiple Grammy-winning albums. With regular touring in the U.S. and Europe, Dave's biggest thrill is fulfilled: 'To be able to meet and share my music with as many people as I can.'
