Artist of the Month
Our Artist of the Month in June is an old friend, Dave Hanson. We first met Dave when he was with the Dunwells and touring Caffe Nero. After touring with Mumford and Sons and Sheryl Crow as well as performing on the Tonight Show, Dave Hanson decided to leave The Dunwells to pursue his dream of making his own music. Spending the last 5 years touring across America provided Dave with inspiration to write and create his new album which has a laid back, rootsy vibe inspired by his love of JJ Cale, Dire Straits and The Black Keys.

Working with producer Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam, David Bowie), Hanson has succeeded in making an album of material that sounds warm and familiar but with a modern production value. Hanson’s easy going persona translates into his music which has a sophisticated and effortless feel.
After completing a successful Pledgemusic campaign, the album will be released on June 3rd 2016 via INgrooves / Six String Social Records.
Dave will be touring extensively in June to promote the album, including an “Artist of the month” promotion and tour with Caffe Nero, plus festival dates including the Cornbury Festival.
