Melbourne’s Dave Diprose has spent over 30 years honing his skills as a songwriter and storyteller. His music brings a richness and depth that draws from older styles such as bluegrass, pre-war blues and the great Texas songwriters. Dave is a formidable guitarist whose sparkling arrangements add interest and context to the material to provide a complete performance.
Dave’s heartfelt presentation, humour and old-fashioned storytelling have etched his place into the acoustic music scene. Says Billy Pinnell (Australian Music Guru) “Dave’s storytelling adds to the appeal of his songs”. A family history steeped in rural settings brings a strong empathy with those on the land and delivers insightful stories of genuine Australian experiences. His song “Hillbilly Radio” was winner of the 2019 Bluegrass Song of the Year (Tamworth Songwriters Salute).
A performer with decades of experience to boast, Dave is a true professional who has performed with and supported a host of international acts and has appeared at numerous festivals across the country. He is a powerful performer and storyteller and one of the outstanding acoustic music artists in the country.
