 Quotes regarding solo acoustic music

“Checked out your stuff last night…F**kin’ gorgeous man! I really like your vocal style”

-         Jon Smith

“Dave is really quiet and modest guy who says little but when he gets on stage says a lot. With 10 or more original tunes, he is a voice to be heard and should be better known, and with time he will be.

Seriously mate, I didn’t realise how talented you were. “The Weather Isn’t Bad” was fantastic and so was “In Your Hands”
