Before Dave Ray Cecil performed at The Lincoln Center in New York City or Nashville’s famed Bluebird Cafe, he was a young child simply putting notes together on the piano. Lyrics soon came easily to him, and while secretly playing his older brother’s guitar, he wrote his first song. Dave has rarely slowed in his creative output, and his musical craftsmanship has been recognized by a variety of songwriting competitions. A truly prolific artist, he has no room in his performances for covers. In fact, Dave's timeless melodies and cutting poetic truths often leave many wondering aloud, "Who wrote that song?" His humble answer is always, "I wrote that song actually; glad you enjoyed it!”.
