Details:
The story is fairly common; from earliest memory, the drive to be a musician is undeniable. Music is a calling, not a choice, and throughout childhood there are the endless hours of study and practice, with the goal of one day becoming a professional performer. This however, is not the story of Dave Balson. In fact there is nothing common about Dave, his music, or his career.

Dave was well into his teen years before he discovered music - and in reality, it was a music teacher who discovered Dave. While at school in California, Dave was sitting in the room of a classmate, singing "Friend of the Devil," when the music teacher walked by, heard him singing, liked what he heard, and suggested to Dave that he perform the song for the school. Dave had always been a big music fan, but had never, until that moment, considered performing. After that moment, Dave was hooked, and he has been performing and composing ever since. The response of the audience, the further encouragement from the teacher, and the comfort Dave felt in the music, launched him into a career.

Developing his skills as a guitarist as well as a vocalist, Dave started out doing cover songs for gatherings of friends and on the streets of Chicago where he attracted crowds willing to tolerate the chilling winds to hear him perform. Along the way, Dave realized the power of music to communicate and motivate, and decided it was time to start singing his own words. Spending a year on a farm in New Hampshire, Dave wrote songs of compassion, unity, love, and freedom. . From searing protest songs, to intimate songs of longing and love, with a style that comes not from formal training, but from honest and unfiltered emotion, Dave's compositions have the ability to reach deep into, and stir the soul of the listener. To listen to Dave's songs is to become committed to his causes, his feelings, and his artistry.

In 2005 Dave got back together with the producer of his first album, Jamie Filmore, to create a new album with stronger songs and more masterful producing. Recording in a small bedroom, they emerged a month later with a CD bound to change the world. "Talk Is Sheep" is an album thats will withstand the test of time and will be the soundtrack to revolution with such songs as the scathing political commentary of "The Dance" to the tragic Ballad of "Getting Worse" to the uplifting and heart warming love song that is "Now That I've Seen You"

Continuing to compose and perform songs that empower, move, and connect with his audiences, Dave has appeared at fundraising events for political activists, small clubs, and still on the streets of Chicago. He is currently booked to perform at Appalachian Uprising June 2-4, sharing the stage with musical greats Sam Bush and Yonder Mountain String Band.

In an era where common and undistinguishable music permeates our culture, the uncommon music of Dave Balson is not merely refreshing, it is necessary.
