About the Artist
One of the things I truly enjoy about David's performance is the contrast between his stature and his projection...Combine that with his Bare Naked Ladies-like sound and his considerable talent on the guitar and there's an artist I want to see again and again."
- Theresa Carter, Wonder-ful (Jul 10, 2007) www.thelocaltourist.com
"... Kav's personal portrait of the artist as a very talented young man is the perfect antidote, a truth serum for listeners looking for that one in a million: a young singer-songwriter putting the focus back where it belongs-lyrics, heart and some damn good guitar."
- LCS, Freelance writer/critic
"This CD [Look Into My Eyes] has a tremendous amount of heart and soul in it. Words and music have an undeniable authenticity, which is what makes it such a pleasure to listen to again and again. It is an important piece of work."
- Mark Shallow, CD Baby review for "Look Into My Eyes"
"Where many singer-songwriters come across as pretentious, "Look Into My Eyes" rises above and feels quite genuine. Listening to the CD you are transported to an intimate performance where you're the only one in the audience."
- Durrell Dawson, Authentic
David Kav, a prolific singer/songwriter, has been playing around the Chicagoland and the Midwest since 2005 in various venues making a name for himself - slowly but surely. He has appeared at Uncommon Ground, Sedgwick's Bar and Grill, The Green Dolphin, Seamus McGhee's Bar and Grill, and The Bar Next Door in Madison, WI. to name a few. The list keeps growing on a day-to-day basis as David patiently chips away at the pavement to success to make himself known to everyone who listens to his music - both live and recorded.
David Kav has been singing for as long as he can remember. Watching his aunt play guitar as a kid (who learned from his father...whom David has never met,) he was intrigued by the seemingly intimidating instrument. Well, of course, as fate would have it, David would follow his (what once seemed like an) infatuation for music by listening to his mother's record collection of Journey, Boston, Neil Young, Chicago records which led to talent showcases, two rock bands (Comatose and All Things Considered,) a side project (Kampus Project,) and "a partridge in a pear tree" (aka David's debut CD "Look Into My Eyes" - just released last year in 2007.) His forthcoming CD, "Better You Here Than Alone," is set to be released Sat. Sept. 13, 2008 at Goose Island Brewery - 3535 N. Clark, Chicago, IL. 60613 at 11:30 pm!
