Hailing from the Midlands, Dave cut his teeth touring the UK with a successful local rock band before relocating to study music at the University of York. Whilst completing this degree Dave discovered jazz and quickly became deeply interested in contemporary British jazz. He has studied with a wide range of highly regarded musicians and tutors including Martin France, Ian Thomas, Jeff Williams and Dave Hassell, and since graduating he has performed with jazz luminaires such as Iain Ballamy and Julian Argüelles.
