Dave Harris was born in Durham in the north of England. His parents gave him a guitar for his 13th birthday and his love of the instrument grew from then. Influenced by the great songwriters of the 70s he developed a style that crosses musical boundaries. His playing developed and the ambition to write his own songs continued to grow . He started to play local pubs singing acoustic covers. In the summer of 2005, he attended the UK Songwriting Festival at Bath Spa University and wrote his first original composition. His debut album August Moon was released in 2011 described as "beautifully crafted songs and superb musicianship". Since then Dave has continued to write and record songs in a mix of genres and styles.
