Dave Philley Biography

Dave started playing guitar and singing as a teenager.  He performed popular folk, folk-rock and country songs. Later on in life, Dave went through an emotionally upsetting period. His singing and guitar playing became his way to salvation. No matter how bad things got, he found he could usually always make himself feel better, simply by singing a few songs.  However, he was almost broke and started busking to make a few dollars. Like most beginning musicians, he was nervous of playing in front of people.  Busking helped him to overcome his uneasiness as he learnt how to play in front of an audience. Dave started performing at small venues. He found he really enjoyed performing, especially when he received sincere compliments from people in the audience.

Dave sings and accompanies himself on guitar and harmonica.  He writes and performs his own songs, as well as popular cover tunes, including Canadian Folk songs, Folk Rock, Classic Rock, Country, Bluegrass, Blues and more genres . His musical inspirations come from many artists, including songs by Paul Simon, Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eagles, Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, Neil Young and many more.  For more information on Dave Philley, please view his Facebook page,, where you can view past performances at various venues.
