Dave McCormick is first and foremost, an exceptionally talented singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. A native West Virginian raised in Lincoln County, he began playing drums in the Duval High School Band at the age of 10. By age 12, he was playing guitar and writing songs. Since then, he has mastered guitar, dobro, mandolin, and lapsteel, and has written over 500 songs in a wide variety of styles. A noted vocalist, his voice ranges from a rich warm baritone to a loud bluesy squall. An extremely versatile musician and entertainer, he is well versed in the genres of country, rock, blues, jazz, r & b, and folk. He is equally at home on stage as an acoustic solo act, or playing screaming electric guitar with his red-hot smokin’ band. An award-winning songwriter, he won the 2006 Mountain Stage New Song Contest and was awarded Best Song for “Where Are You Moses”.
In 2008, Dave signed a publishing deal with Sure-Fire Music in Nashville, Tennessee. He has opened for, and shared the stage with many nationally known recording artists. While living in Nashville, Dave had the distinct honor and pleasure of opening for the legendary Merle Haggard on the hallowed ground of the historic Ryman Theater, home of the Grand Ole’ Opry. To date, Dave has recorded three CDs, “Music Man”, “Mountains On The Moon”, “Ghost Inside My Guitar”, and “The Guitar And Me And Y’all”. Soulful, eclectic, and well-crafted are terms often used to describe this consummate artist and his work. As a veteran performer, Dave is always seeking to expand his horizons and his fan base!
