ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Press for Dave’s song Jon Stewart is God:

Rolling Stone: “Hilariously genius”

Symphony Space: “Epitomizes the alternative voice of rock”

New York Daily News: “Engaging and mesmerizing music with
alternatively poignant, direct and funny lyrics”

Dave is a New York City based singer/songwriter. His work is characterized by island-tinged rock rhythms underpinning consistently mesmerizing pop/rock songs. He is joined in the studio and onstage by a roving group of musicians that go by the name the “Mojo Conga Jam”. Regular members of the “MCJ” include David Patterson on guitar (alumnus of Atlanta Singer/songwriter Shaun Mullins and the Indigo Girls), David Gomez on percussion (internationally acclaimed Latin Jazz percussionist and Hiram Bullock/Omar Hakim collaborator), and various other luminaries of the NYC music scene.

Dave incorporates varied rhythms into his writing, including reggae, rock and salsa, to name a few. The end results are sometimes playful, sometimes soulful, sometimes down-right rockin’, but always evocative tunes that the NYC crowd has begun to call “rhythmic rock”. Dave grew up in Puerto Rico and incorporates Spanish into many of his songs along with the random Hebrew rap (courtesy of Israeli percussion/vocal star Sharon Hawk) and snippets of Yoruba chanting (thanks to David Gomez and his endless depth of his knowledge of Afro-Caribbean grooves).

His songs have appeared on television shows, feature films and international DVD releases and have been played on the radio all around the world. He has also worked with such stars at Richie Havens and has pitched songs to internationally acclaimed artists including Norah Jones and Carlos Santana.

Stunning
A very pleasing recording indeed. Superb rhythms so dynamicly loud and others done with.....a quiet mind. Some rock, some carribean flavored, others latin flavored, a couple of cool live acoustic performances and even some gospel/spiritual tones that will bathe yu delightfully. Great singing , good playing, and cool arranging. What more could you want?

All around excellence
This is an allround great album. The rock songs rock, the ballads sway and the lyrics work. I'm not sure what else to say, but I really like it!

No, not the town in France! This album! Great grooves. Quiet Mind is amazing in a low key way and I'm pretty sure I know the girl in "when she's in love with me"...LOL!

I wish more music like this was being put out these days...

They rock!
I saw them at the Prospect Park show and they absolutely rocked! I bought the album right away and was equally blown away. Not many bands can match their live shows in the studio - or vice versa lol! - but Dave and the MCJ have.

I heard Quiet Mind live and fell in love with the song. The album version has more "world-y" beats but is just as good. Everyone out there - tell your friends and family about Dave before he gets too big and you end up spending $500 a ticket at the Garden - lol!
