Pickin” Singles sports a roots rock sound where the instrumentation focused on Acoustic guitars, stand up bass, mandolin, accordion, piano, harmonica - instruments you might find on a front porch gathering of musicians. The collection features 3 previously released numbers "I'm Wonderin", "Rock N Roll Fever" & the latest single/video "I Found Love". I FOUND LOVE - VIDEO LINK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeDvhcyAheQ The 3 new recordings are "I Don't Know What To Do (About You)" featuring Mark Iannce from The Jill Jack Band on accordion, the Frankie Miller nugget "Be Good To Yourself" (the only song here performed by Dave’s stage band The Look) and a visit down memory lane with the re-recording of "Can't Think Right" from The Look's debut that features The Orbitsons' Larry LeBeck on Pedal Steel. Rounding out the band are Jimmie Bones Trombly (Kid Rock, Howling Diablos) on all keyboards & harmonica, Bob Monteleone (The Look, Belle Islanders, Black Market) on guitars, Mitch Purdy (Black Market, Belle Islanders) on "Box" and mandolin and introducing Kenny Pesick on Stand Up Bass & Myles Rutledge on drums. This is some of the best and most intimate music DAVE has every made and we hope you love it as much as we do!
