Dave is a veteran of these projects (this is his fourth contribution), and as usual he was the first to volunteer and the first to contribute a track.
Dave is a fellow Brit and tours with his band, regularly playing festivals. His guitar, pianos and vocals rightly mark him as one of the best musical acts in the West Country.
A review of his first record from the Classic Rock Society draws comparisons which should strike a chord with you:
This debut album for the Dave Rich Band shows them to be a very talented bunch of musicians, not afraid to lead with acoustic guitar or piano, and who draw on a variety of influences from the blues of Clapton, the scope of Floyd and the jamming of Bruce Hornsby.
There’s more than a little Sting influence too, which is what most comes to mind whilst listening: a kind of souped up Sting.The tracks are very well written, almost crafted, and there lies the strength of the unit. Build on that and with a favourable wind, who knows what could happen. One to watch out for I think.
Dave is a regular contributor to Bruuuce.com and well known amongst the Hornsby community.
You can grab his raucous version of Black Rats of London from the downloads page.
