About Dave

Guitarist
Worthing

Professional guitarist of 20+ years. Recorded several albums and sessions also tours in Europe, North America and Asia. Available for work.

Started writing on piano and guitar in my teens. My first band was signed to an EMI subsidiary. After tours and records (yep, vinyl) I found myself being hired for session work and tours. I have spent around 15 years writing music for TV, Radio and Film and have had around 50 published tracks. As the guitarist and singer in the trio Namaqua, I have written and co-written several albums, EPs and MVs. Since mid-2015 I have been playing George Harrison on the Beatles tribute circuit and doing deps and sessions for functions. Influenced by Clapton, Beatles, Hendrix, Brad Paisley, Mark Knopfler and many others.

One evening in December, chaos erupted in the quiet village of Stock. The Harvard Inn opened its doors for the first, but not the last time, to The Beatles. With a little help from their friends, the place ended up rocking! We were transported through decades of wonderful hits. There was singing, dancing and swaying of hands. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

I was reminded today that we were going to hire a DJ. Haha, I'm so glad we hired your band. Nothing but good things to say about you, nothing but sore feet the next morning. Loved your version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps. Truly amazing!
