Dave Peyton is a singer/ songwriter/ musician hailing from Daingean Co Offaly.
Dave became a household name when he brought some much-needed rock to RTÉ's You’re a Star with his band Dave’s Radio, and has more recently released a solo album called Couch Lovers. Dave recorded his album in the summer of 2009 in Dockside Studio, Maurice, Louisiana, host to acts such as BB-King, Scarlett Johansson, Dr John, Bobby Charles, The Givers, Lost Bayou Ramblers, Mark Knopler, and many more.
For the past few years Dave has been gigging extensively and trying out his new material on crowds around Ireland and across the water. He has been very fortunate with gigs, having shared stages in small venues and big festivals with Ireland’s finest The Frames, The Blizzards, Mundy, The Pogues, The Hothouse Flowers, Declan O’Rourke, Ronnie Drew, The Walls, and many international acts such as Avril Lavigne, Star Sailor, The Editors, Sister Sledge, and The Mystery Jets.
Dave’s music has been described as driven and dynamic with killer riffs, all topped off by his charismatic melodic vocals. Dave’s voice is without doubt his strongest attribute. Be it delicate, heart-wrenching melodies or soaring, anthemic choruses, Dave has a voice that can capture the spirit and lift the soul. His talent is one that is truly unique and individual, this shines through in his music. Comparisons don’t come easy and he has a sound that is truly unique.
Thomas Black (EMI Records ) described Dave Peyton as one of the best singer songwriters he’d seen in years and took him to the UK where he worked with legendary producer Steve Osbourne (New Order, Placebo, Suede, U2, Radiohead, KT Tunstall ).
