Dave Ray Cecil


As a young child, Dave Ray Cecil began putting notes together on the piano. It wasn't long before he penned his first lyrics, and then while secretly playing his brother’s guitar, he wrote his first song. Dave has rarely slowed in his creative output, and has become a truly prolific artist with 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 did, hope you enjoyed it."
