DAVE REYNOLDS could most easily be described as the ‘quiet achiever’ of
Australian Country Music.
multi-talented guitarist, songwriter and entertainer, Dave has carved a niche
over the years with his unique delivery that defies musical labels and
boundaries in style and content. His swag of awards is testament to his
versatility … ‘Country Singles of the Year’, ‘Best Country Albums’, 'Best Album of the Year' (all categories) and a few ‘Middle of the Road’
awards to round out the list.
most artists head for the bright lights and city clubs, much of the typical
Reynolds’ week is spent often travelling hundreds of kilometres to entertain
in smaller centres and towns. There’s more than a touch of empathy with the
bush and its folk from a man who spends his time away from music on his cattle
property near Caboolture in South-east Queensland.
style sits comfortably with the current crop of contemporary artists, but for a
man who can push out modern country music with the best of them, there’s many
an occasion he has sat on the verandah of a country pub musically reminiscing on
our great pioneers of the past, such as Shorty Ranger, Slim Dusty and Smoky Dawson (for
now that deep love and respect for Australia, its people and places, has
emphatically surfaced with the release, through Sundown Publishing, of his
“SONGS OF AUSTRALIA”. On this ambitious project, Dave has thrown a leg-rope
around 46 great Aussie songs ranging from classics to some great new originals,
thrown them to the ground and tagged them onto four great albums … “EASY
GOIN’ AUSSIE”, “BUSH BALLADS OF AUSTRALIA”, “THE REAL MATILDA” and
“AUSTRALIAN ANIMAL TRACKS”. There’s fun, nostalgia, stories of the bush
and in the case of “21 Guns” and “Such Is Life”, powerful songs
that will become fixtures in our musical heritage.
latest album, "WHAT LOVE CAN DO FOR YOU" is now available.
some respects, DAVE REYNOLDS is a Country Music enigma, but that’s what sets
him apart from many of his peers and certainly has won him a legion of fans
throughout the world. His undeniable talent which is obvious from his many releases
(10 so far) will ensure that the name DAVE REYNOLDS is firmly stamped on
Australian Country Music for many years to come.
His expertise with song requests is a crowd pleaser.
