Dave Eisel spent his childhood in a quintessential small town just west of Toledo, Ohio where families scraped by either farming or working for the man in the local auto industry. He started performing as a toddler on piano at covered dish suppers for family and friends. During his tortured teenage years, Dave cut his teeth performing at local Northwest Ohio and Sothern Michigan venues filled with star-struck teenie boppers.
After graduating from high school his lust for a rock star career drove him to Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, CA where he refined his skills. The times were fun, but late-80’s glam rock tortured his soul, so in the early 90’s Dave searched for a more roots-oriented home base to perform and record from and ultimately moved to the talent-filled San Francisco Bay Area.
Dave spent the 90’s defining his style and taking opportunities to perform with many renowned artists. At the dawn of the century, he became a family man and followed his day job to Sacramento, California where he now performs regularly when it doesn’t interfere with parent-teacher conferences and weekends in Vegas with his hot wife.
Dave is a master songwriter, guitarist and keyboard player. His adolescent yearnings to “become a rock star” have only lightly tarnished with age and his lifelong passion remains true: The desire to write and perform for the people who love his music.
