Album Notes
Born David Patrick Andrew Sutherland Aug 1st 1970 Hammersmith, London. .It was in early 1993 that Dave
Sutherland discovered the music scene in and around South London. By the end of ’94 Dave was recording demos and gigging as far afield as Kentish Town. An early break was to perform at The Mean Fiddler in London which
subsequently led to a booking at the Phoenix festival the following summer. With the likes of Bob Dylan and Van Morrison on the bill Dave was in good company (if only on the Acoustic Tent) A nice twist was that the heavensopened prior to the set and Mr Sutherland played to a crowd of 300! The drive, gig, sleep, drive routine continued throughout the U.K.

1996 found Dave’s songwriting and fingerstyle guitar cross paths with Bert Jansch. An apprenticeship of sorts, Dave
toured and opened the shows in some major theatres around the U.K. During this time Bert recorded and produced "Navigator" Dave’s first album. Undoubtedly the Jansch stamp has rubbed off in some form or other in Dave’s work. He began opening shows for Glenn Tillbrook and Squeeze, playing in front of larger crowds.

Things changed gears with the chance meeting of U.S. pedal steeler Bill Fleming. Two rehearsals before three London shows and the CD "London Bootleg" was put together from the recordings. An invitation to go to America was instantly accepted,
and that summer Dave touched down in Atlanta, Georgia and began touring the US on and off for the next few years.

"Comfortable Junction" was finished by Jan ’99. Recorded in Greenwich at Escapade Studios. He was signed by Egg Records in the US and bunches of touring followed. “American Refrigerator” was produced by Dave Dix in 2002. These songs reflect on his time spent in America and the influences his “Brit-Grass” style takes from there. Did you know an American Refrigerator is 33% bigger than a British one?

Buy this CD immediately!
This album is fantastic. I bought it a week ago and everyone I have played it for wants to buy it. The songs themselves have really classic, simple melodies, and are extremely well constructed. The bluegrass instrumentals are excellent. This is honestly some of the best songwriting I have heard. If you're already intereted enough to read this, just go ahead and buy it.
