    Dave produced a song I wrote with American Idol contestant kason Lester called Still So Tennessee (Available on SoundCloud)

    Thanks to his interpretation, the song won the NSAI Nashville Chapter Challenge contest. Thanks Dave!

    I have been fortunate to have worked with Dave many times over the years. He is reliable, friendly and out of this world talented. He can do anything musically you ask of him and it’s done professionally and delivered on time every time. I couldn’t recommend him more!
