A Note From Dave … | April 12, 2014

Hello everyone,

I’m going to be back and forth to Ontario a bit this month as well as doing a few shows here and there around the East Coast.

The last couple of weeks have been full of surprises. Last week I found out that “These Hands” was the First Place Winner in the Great American Song Contest. Right after receiving this great news I was off to Charlottetown for the East Coast Music Awards and performed with my good friend David Francey singing “A Game Goin’ On”. During the Gala Show I was blown away to hear my name called out twice as the winner of two ECMAs, one for Songwriter of the Year and the second for Solo Recording of the Year. What a great weekend of music and hanging with friends including this guy in the photo with me, Old Man Luedecke, who also won two ECMAs to add to his collection. We also loved the potatoes and got into them right after the show. Congrats to everyone who not only won something but who contributed to our wonderful East Coast Music Scene in someway whether as an artist, industry person, presenter, spouse, volunteer or last but not least, a fan.

Thanks to all,

Dave
