Meet Dave Giles, a 33 year old singer-songwriter from London.
In January 2018, after an eight month fundraising campaign, Dave jetted off to Nashville to start work on his most ambitious project to date.
Having raised £23000, him and his producer, Dean Dichoso, put together a band of incredible musicians and found the perfect studio, located on the corner of Tennessee and 48th Street, Welcome To 1979, to make Dave’s second full length album. The ten songs they recorded live went straight to tape – just how all your favourite old records were made.
Mixing British-Folk and the Americana genre, the completed album entitled 'Tennessee and 48th' will be released on 2 November 2018.
Before then, Dave will take his new songs on the road, starting with a performance in Camden at Frank Turner’s Hand-Picked Artists for his Lost Evenings Festival in May, with a full schedule of album launch events planned for later in the year.
Dave has toured the UK extensively for the last eight years, building up a loyal and hardcore audience. He has shared stages with Jade Bird, Will Varley, Beans On Toast, Sean McGowen, Bry, Ben Marwood, Danny Gruff, The Candle Thieves, Chris TT, Nick Parker and many more. His music has toured Europe, Ireland and Australia. In October 2012 he released his debut album 'Love, Life, Loss and Tea' which was produced by Nigel Pulsford (Bush). Dave has also self-produced and released eight EPs since October 2010.
