Arkansas Dave

Arkansas Dave

   

“Tom Waits has always been a favourite artist of mine; and when it came time to record the album, I wanted a cover song to record. I went through several options before reaching the decision to record ‘Chocolate Jesus’ by suggestion of my wife. This song is such a direct metaphor for what it is like going up in a Christian, conservative church culture and what it means to question the powers to be and finding solace and refuge in your own interests, beliefs and satisfactions. I can truly relate to this song, and I feel this song helps tell my story; some much, I included it on my debut album.”

Arkansas Dave was born and raised in the piney swamps of South Arkansas. Bred on blues and rock n roll, Dave cut his teeth playing in dive bars and the best honky tonks Arkansas and Texas has to offer. A self taught musician, Dave’s songs are interestingly original, blended with the humble sounds of the South. From the blues to gospel to rock n roll, his work comes full circle showcasing his raw talent.
