Dave Hogan is a songwriter and musician from Bridgeport, Connecticut. A veteran of three critically-acclaimed
music groups, Red One, The Great Upsetters and The Rafter Bats, he began his solo music career in 2006. Beyond
his established talents as a songwriter, he is a guitarist and vocalist. His musical style ranges from acoustic Americana
and bluegrass to electric-guitar driven alt. country, to improvisational jam band arrangements.
After the dissolution of The Rafter Bats in 2008, Dave formed the rock group Graylight Campfire, who released albums
in October 2008 and February 2010. In late 2009, Dave was invited to participate in a tribute album for Golden
Microphone Records, titled Not Before My Time: The Amy O'Neill Songbook (IndepenDisc). Dave collaborated with
Jason P. Krug and Carmen Champagne (of the indie rock duo The Grimm Generation) on their tour and new album,
which is slated for release in Spring 2011.
During 2010, invitations were made to friends; musicians Dave has worked with over the years, to collaborate on some
of his songs. Fun Box, the new album featuring 10 original songs composed and performed by Dave Hogan and his
"co-conspirators," has now been released.
"When Dave Hogan comes, he brings the
ghosts of the honky tonks and the spirits
of Parsons and Marriot, tales of road-
weary love and better days ahead. "
