LEAD VOCALS & KEYS
Dave began to sing at the age of four when teaching himself to read from the lyric sheets of his parent’s Billy Joel records. At an early age he learned to read music from taking piano lessons. In his teen years, he played first trumpet in concert band and helped win a national competition in Washington, D.C. After focusing on academics and graduating college, a old high school friend asked if he would like to take a shot at singing lead in a cover band, Copper Jack, playing in Southeastern Massachusetts throughout 2012. After Copper Jack disbanded in 2013, Dave along with former Copper Jack members Adam Letourneau and Michael Raucci, began working on a new project and thus began He Said She Said. Dave says, “This band has so much talent, it’s sick! Not to mention that I’ve met a bunch of new friends and great people!”. He is also the only member of He Said She Said that will openly admit that he enjoys the band Nickelback.
