INTERVIEW: David T. Dunn

How would you classify your music?

​Mostly Rock n Roll with blues and country influences…with a little Punk mixed in for attitude…

Who are some of your top 5 musical influences?

​Neil Young…Beatles…British Invasion…Velvet Underground…Kris Kristofferson…Slim Harpo.

What do you want fans to take from your music? ​

That it’s real… written and played from the heart.

How’s the music scene in your locale?

​Getting better… More small venues opening up… Still not enough original.

What is the best concert you have been to? What do you like most about playing live?

​I’ve seen a lot of great shows….My two favorites were Jimmy Reed (he died a week later) and Link Wray.

I play mostly original and I almost never tell the crowd that….So most people think my stuff was copy and are surprised when they find out it’s not

Is there a song on your latest CD release here that stands out as your personal favorite, and why?

​I’d have to say “Every Seconds a Diamond” although “Catch That Train” was released as the single. It’s about the life ​I’ve spent with my wife Ginny.

How have you evolved as an artist over the last year?

​I’ve learned to trust the songs I write and not second guess myself so much. Also I have better control of my voice and try to work within my vocal range.

If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, have a drink with any band or artist (dead or alive) who would it be?

​Neil Young… I love his music and I feel he’s a completely unique talent both as a songwriter and player.

What’s next for you?

​Keep writing and recording songs… Their my art whether I have commercial success or not… It’s just something I have to do… And doing as many live shows as I can.
