Bio:

David Dyer has been entertaining Southeasterners with his songwriting, singing, playing and story-telling for over 20 years. While his natural playing style is bluegrass-dusted rockabilly-blues (described by a local music critic as "Hank Sr. meets Chris Isak"), he is a versatile singer-songwriter who works in a variety of musical genres.

Dyer recently received international recognition by placing four songs in the top 1.5% overall in three different categories in the prestigious 2004 Billboard International Song Contest.

Dyer, 43, spent his formative years in the South Carolina Lowcountry and began writing and playing in his early teens. Over the years he has played with a variety of bluegrass, country & rock bands and currently performs both as a solo artist and with his Raleigh, NC based group, David Dyer & the Crooked Smile Band. He and Cheryl, his wife of sixteen years, enjoy two girls, Cammie, 10, and Ella, 4.

Major influences include Hank Sr., Elvis, Bill Monroe, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jerry Garcia, John Lennon and various groups from the British invasion.

Luke Pender

Great CD, My kind of music. Bluesy Rock.
Enjoyed the CD very much. Look forward to seeing Dave and the Group live. Also plan to purchase more of their music. Loved the vocals, harmonica, and guitar. Keyboard was tight also.

Down home swamp-dog country blues
This debut record reminds me of the Tractors and captures the band's earlier more stripped down, raw & bluesy sound. Great keyboard performance on Throw Down by Steve Potak of The Connells, and killer harmonica on Don't Hit Me. Also really like the straight ahead driving rock groove on Hard Chargin' Man. Definitely worth a listen...
