MP3 Dave Hall - Who Do You Love?
This Thing ROCKS... Electric & acoustic guitar-based rock-n-roll and a melodic piano ballad. Inspiring lyrics. Think Eagles/Tom Petty/Phil Keaggy and a touch of Zepellin; Stan Lynch from Petty & Heartbreakers plays all drums.

"Indie" recording artist Dave Hall is a native New Yorker who now lives in North Central Florida with his wife and three kids. He has been writing songs for over 20 years and has recorded several singles that have had modest radio success in FL. As a singer/songwriter, Hall primarily plays small acoustic venues such as coffee houses and small concerts. "Who Do You Love?" is his first fully produced CD.
Recorded and mastered at REC ROOM Recording Studio in Gainesville, FL, "Who Do You Love?" was produced and engineered by former Petra bassist, Ronny Cates, winner of 9 Dove awards and 3 Grammys and a member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. The production is skillfully and thoughtfully crafted. Co-producer, singer/songwriter Dan Dickhaus, together with Cates pool elements from Hall''s rock and folk influences to create sounds that best bring his lyrical intent to the surface. Cates also plays six-string and bass guitars.
Drums are performed with percision and finesse by Rock-n-Roll Hall of Famer Stan Lynch, founding drummer for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Lynch also toured with Bob Dylan as a drummer for two years. His credits also include playing for and/or producing such artists as Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Big Sky, The Byrds, Sister Hazel, Aretha Franklin, John Mellencamp, and others.
Additional musicians who appear on the CD are: Tracy Collins, well known in the North Central Florida area for his keyboard prowess and creativity; Jim Evans, a gifted live and studio guitarist who too is sought after for his skill, variety, and creativity; and Jeff Sims, an all-around musician and local music store owner who plays with diverse guitar styles. Mastered by Derron Nuhfer of SARLACC Mastering in Gainesville, FL, Derron was a member of the band Less than Jake. Also, Hall''s wife Annette and daughters Faith and Jessica sing on two songs, and his seven-year-old son David Wesley plays a "mean" harmonica on the song "Grip of Grace"
Lyrically, Hall draws his life''s experiences and personal reflections to convey themes of, urgency, challenge, frustration, hope, and cheerfulness. His musical roots go back to the great rock-n-roll that came out of the late 1960s, ''70s and early ''80s like: The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Petra, Phil Keaggy, Kansas, etc. "Who Do You Love?" is a cohesive seven song album that offers a good 30 minutes of kickin'' rock tracks with a couple of lighter cuts. THIS CD WILL MOVE YOU!!!
