Buccaneer Boogie


Hi, my name is Dave.


I live in Los Angeles. I've also lived in Chicago and suburban Washington, DC. I like snacking on raw almonds and rice cakes dipped in hummus. I enjoy baseball, extra hot coffee, riding the bus, free food samples, libraries, and cleaning out my ears with Q-tips. I'm married with a couple kids. We have a great time making up songs together. With music, I try to come up with stuff that's musically adventurous and incorporates elements from my favorite genres, which range from club and radio pop to experimental ambient drone. I love songs that celebrate the trivial, weird, and quirky aspects of life. I also aim to have my music reflect the values of simple living, reusing things, being friendly and helpful, and celebrating diversity.
