Those that have witnessed a Dave Wells performance are privy to the beguiling power of this most rare of musicians. Few songwriters conjure the emotive force of this songwriter, whose command of both voice and guitar captivates to the point of transcendency.
On his new eight-track release, due mid 2023, Wells captures the arresting simplicity of his voice and guitar. In the midst of a global pandemic, the Hunter-based songwriter collaborated with world-renowned producer and engineer Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Rage Against the Machine, Powderfinger), the mutual aim to depart from the robust full-band bells-and-whistles delivery of Wells’ acclaimed debut solo record and strip the songs down to their elemental components.
Wells will embark on his first post-pandemic headline tour, taking this mostly unheard set of songs on the road for a series of solo and full-band shows. With a now broader and more stunning songbook, Wells is sure to deliver mesmerising and life-affirming concerts for those lucky enough to attend.
