Album Notes
Kirsten & Dave

Kirsten & Dave– Folk, Country, Acoustic Blues & Pop
Kirsten & Dave’s diverse backgrounds are the key to their success at performing a variety of musical styles. Whether they are playing acoustic pop, country, acoustic blues or folk/bluegrass, their love for music is obvious. Playing a variety of instruments, Kirsten & Dave swap off melodies and harmonies as they play a mix of covers and original tunes. They have 3 decades of performing experience between them and they have been playing together for six years.

Kirsten Manville – Guitar, Flute & Vocals
Kirsten Manville grew up near Boston and studied piano and flute from the age of eight. She performed in school band, chorus, and drama. Kirsten attended Bowdoin College while continuing to study flute and voice. She also sang in the Bowdoin Chamber Choir. During her senior year she took up guitar and began composing and performing in a folk trio. She graduated with a BA in music in 1995. That fall she moved to Nashville where she worked for the Nashville Symphony and sang in the Nashville Symphony Chorus. As if that wasn’t enough music for her, on her days off she went and performed at local Nashville coffeehouses. She’s kind of a show-off like that. Back in Massachusetts, Kirsten continues to hone her considerable songwriting skills.

David Simmons – Guitar & Vocals
David Simmons arrived by an equally circuitous route. He played trumpet and sang in the chorus in grade school. At puberty he had trouble getting used to his new voice, so he began taking guitar lessons. Eventually he learned how to sing again. In 1991, Dave got involved in the local community cultural scene and began producing, as well as performing in, local cultural events. He also found time to play rhythm guitar in a 7-piece blues, ska, and swing jazz band. Eventually he began to prefer the sound of the acoustic guitar, but once in a while he still likes to drag out the old Telecaster. Dave tries to get out and play every chance he gets, whether it’s solo or in a combo. He needs to keep busy in order to stay out of trouble.

Dreams That Just Won’t Let Go

Some dreams just won’t let go. If you travel along your road and ignore them they might become discouraged, and maybe you’ll think that they are gone. Then you turn a corner into a hopeful place and there they are waiting for you.

When we decided that we needed some new demo recordings, we asked ourselves the obvious question: why not record a full length cd? (Or was it those pesky dreams saying that?)

So we now have a cd. Of course, there’s more to it than that. We couldn’t have done it without lots of hard work by Brian Maes of Briola Records and all the friends who worked with us on this project. Thank you, all you beautiful dreamers.
