Dave was born on New Year's morning in 1986.  At age seven he was encouraged by his mother to learn a musical instrument and chose the clarinet, but to this day he has no idea why as he probably hadn't even heard one by that point!

Having branched out into various other things (saxophone, flute, guitar, drums, etc.), Dave's formal education continued and he passed the highest graded Jazz Clarinet exam with 'Honours' in March 2004.  In 2008, Dave graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in music from Christ Church University in Canterbury.  He learnt a great deal from his tutors and fellow students, and won awards for his skills in performance, improvisation and composition.

These days, Dave performs as a sax soloist and DJ, both independently and with a variety of outfits across the South East and beyond.  With an ambition to continue to learn and improve, Dave has studied with world renowned saxophonists Paul Booth (Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Jamiroquai, The Eagles, BBC Big Band) and Bob Reynolds (Usher, John Mayer, Snarky Puppy, The Voice).

Dave lives in Chartham village just outside Canterbury, Kent, UK with his wife and two young children.
