** NOT YOUR TYPICAL SINGER / SONG-WRITER **
At times compared to Billy Joel, Dave can inspire with vocal range and power. Or he can softly seduce with a Jazz lounge-singer style.
Dave’s music crosses over amongst various styles: jazz, lyrical pop, blues. His original songs are enhanced by powerful lyrical vocals, amusing lyrics and melodic vibrancy. Dave has been composing, producing and performing in the Austin area since 2007. His band is available for events including brunches, parties and private house concerts.
Dave’s first CD ‘The MAD BALLADEER’ was produced in Austin (2011). Musicians playing with Dave on this CD include Ephraim Owens, Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Javier Chaparro, Monte Mann, Nick Connolly, Paul Klemperer. ‘The MAD BALLADEER’ contains 9 originals and 3 cover songs.
Another CD is coming along nicely. ‘JAZZ by JELLISON’ should be out by February 2018. It will contain 3 originals, and will cover 9 jazz classics. Song list includes: ‘WHEN SUNNY GETS BLUE’, ‘BESAME MUCHO’, ‘GOD BLESS THE CHILD’ and ‘MY BLUE HEAVEN’. Dave’s 3rd CD is right behind it- all original songs in Lyrical Pop/Jazz styles, to be released in mid-2018.
