Dave MacLachlan's calling as a musical expeditionary began with endless childhood lessons on violin, percussion and trumpet. These instruments, however, would be quickly jettisoned in favor of the guitar, upon Dave's discovery of the vibrant Blues Music of the Mississippi Delta at the age of twelve.

Stints with a variety of Blues, Folk and Country road acts followed, as did an acclaimed career in the Canadian Broadcasting Industry.

Dave’s aggressive style marries an edgy rock/blues feel with the introspective, poetic musings of a true folkie to dramatic effect.

Currently residing in Brampton, Ontario, Dave continues to write and perform uniquely personal material that reflects his varied musical background and to continue his lifelong examination of North America's rich musical heritage.
