About Dave

Award winning songwriter Dave Diprose performs blues, bluegrass, and roots from both the traditions and his own highly regarded catalog. Dave's inciteful stories of real experiences and humorous domestic situations appeals to audiences. With his humorous and heartfelt presentation, Dave is a powerful performer with gritty vocals and superb guitar arrangements. Accompanied by master sideman Darryl Thompson (guitar, Dobro, vocals), the duo present a compelling blend of interesting songs, engaging rhythms, sounds and stories. 

Dave’s songwriting is what sets him apart. He has a unique ability to write music into the context of older times and yet sound genuine, fresh and contemporary. Dave has been a finalist in numerous songwriting competitions and is widely regarded within the industry. His song “Hillbilly Radio” was awarded 2019 Bluegrass Song of the Year by the Tamworth Songwriters Salute.
