ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dave Christensen is the groove that travels from Africa to Abbey Road, from Mexico to Memphis. The groove that dances in Jamaican dance halls, jazz clubs, blues bars and Bourbon St.


Dave Christensen is the musical equivalent of Tom Waits and Theloniuos Monk’s bastard child. Embodying the personalities of an accomplished songwriter, a prolific improviser and a mad-cap arranger, Dave’s music is deep and rich in texture, yet accessible to the listener without being overbearing or self-indulgent. His voice puts the “gritty” in “integrity”while his lyrics navigate the space between the physical and emotional universes and investigate what pulls us apart and what holds us together.. He arranges the traditional instruments, such as organ, horns, guitar, strings, accordion, woodwinds and percussion (among others), to create unique sounds that juxtapose different musical neighborhoods. Dave’s shows not only entertain, but take the audience on a journey through the world of rhythm and style. From New Orleans 2nd-line and African beats to Rock and Funk fueled Rhythm and Blues, Dave has open ears that can assimilate many genres into a cohesive sound, making him a musical visionary akin to Prince or Beck.
Dave has studied music since age 6 and started song-writing at age 12. In college he studied improvisational music and poetry, developing an understanding between the music of the spoken word and the communicative power of music. Dave spent the next ten years living in Galena, a small town in Illinois, developing his style through playing live shows and as a studio musician, playing on over 100 tracks. Over the past 2 years, Dave wrote, arranged, produced and recorded his debut album, “The Bosom and The Pool”, using over 35 musicians to create varied textures and rhythms.
Having recently relocated to Burbank, CA, Dave is working on new songs, promoting his album and becoming established in the L.A. music scene.

This is the best CD I've bought in a while!
I love this CD. I don't buy a lot of music, but I'm glad I purchased this disc. The music is fun and toe-tapping, so make sure you get your copy...

A creative work by a talented musician. Pick up a copy today!
When listening to Dave Christensen's "The Bosom and The Pool" CD, the first word that comes to mind is "CREATIVE." Dave's style on this CD is unique, mixing elements of many genres of music and many instruments. The rhythms are complex and multi-layered, yet very effective at bringing a strong groove to the music. The rhythmic groove is layered with keyboard and horn countermelodies, which blend well with Dave's raspy and rhythmic vocal style. There are some very neat keyboard licks on a number of the tracks such as "Come On" and "Real Stuff." This CD is a very creative work of a talented musician. Pick up a copy today.
