In 1983 he produced his first cassette album Almost One, added Mandolin to his accomplishments, appeared on Radio Cleveland and wrote about love and hate and much more. His influences were wide but loved and played songs by Jim Croche, Simon and Garfunkle, Lindisfarne, Everly Bros, Beatles,James Taylor and later traditional folk songs. Dave's guitar became increasingly accomplished and he began recording tracks for a second album before leaving Middlesbrough in the mid 80's.Dave now lives in Spain and has been playing drums in a band. These are some his songs from his Middlesbrough period in the 80's uploaded by me - Trev Teasdel - for Dave and his friends and anyone who might enjoy this fine blend of songs tried and tested on audiences in the Tees Valley back in the 80's and elsewhere.
