As long as there are dedicated blues troubadours such as Dave Diprose carrying on this century old music tradition, it will continue to not only survive, but flourish. ”

— Al Hensley (Rhythms Magazine)

One of the most authentic blues artists in the country. A fantastic blend of tradition with an Australian edge.”

— Lloyd Spiegel (Premier Endorsee Cole Clark Guitars).


With 30 years honing his skills as a songwriter, slide guitarist, bluegrass flatpick guitarist and story-teller, Dave Diprose has etched his place into the Melbourne acoustic scene.  His music is steeped in tradition and rich with Australian heritage. 

His Blues is played with the power, passion and pizzazz you’d expect to hear on the plantations and juke joints of old Mississippi. His voice is earthy and raw and his mastery of the metal-bodied slide guitar unparalleled. 

Performing with Hillbilly Radio, he blends the sounds of Country-swing, Bluegrass and Old-timey with original tales, featuring humorous and heartfelt songs, old-fashioned storytelling, and music that sets the feet a-tappin'.
