Dave’s musical path has been quite a journey, after attending Berklee College of music, Dave was immersed in the NYC music scene as a first call guitarist and multi instrumentalist. Dave, “ My Father made sure that I could play a lot of different instruments and styles so I could make a living. Unlike many blues musicians, I was raised to be a musical “hit man”. I got to do sessions with many famous musicians and producers like Tommy James & Ahmed Ertegen (to name a few) and even was on staff of one of the top five jingle companies in NY LOOK MUSIC”. But Dave was more than just a craftsman, his passion for music could not be satisfied with just being a writer for hire. Dave, “ I made the decision in 2006 that I was going to make a stand in my life. That I was going to do what was really important to me. Honestly…. I was too scared in my younger days! LOL! So I set out on m new career path, being Dave Fields the artist. Another thing was I had backed up and produced so many other artists and one day it dawned on me, why am I doing this for everyone else? Why can’t I do it FOR ME!"
Dave has performed with the likes of Hubert Sumlin, U2 and opened for Blues Traveler and won Best Self Produced CD 2006 at the IBC for producing BACK IN BLUESVILLE.
