Since moving to Dover, Dave joined the progressive rock band Testing The Water, whose debut CD received regular air play and even record of the week on one New Zealand radio station! He has recorded with Madrohne, blending traditional and modern music and has released a total of 4 jazz CD's in collaboration with Saxman Dave Corsby.
He joined two other Dover musicians to form the innovative Zen Bicycle Band who have released two albums 'Zen Bicycle' in 2008 and 'Essence' in 2011. Dave's other recent recordings include the debut album from Canadian singer Michel Chartier
Always one for new gadgets, Dave owned one of the first MalletKats to be imported into the UK. His interest in blending traditional and electronic music fits into the ethos of the Zen Bicycle Band, creating the pulse and ambient foundation that is one of the trademarks of the music.
