Singer/Songwriter Dave Stephens was born, and grew up in Vancouver, Canada. Showing early signs of musical aptitude, Stephens was encouraged at a young age to play piano. In his teens he picked up guitar, as in his own words, “Stairway To Heaven never sounded that great on my piano.”
Upon graduating High School, Dave enrolled at CDIS, a and recording school in Vancouver. It was here that he cut his teeth on the art of Music Arranging and Production.
The years that followed saw the budding musician release his debut album - here we go...(2004). The album was received well by independent radio, and his video for single - Livin' In A Dream, which featured a lesbian robot love triangle, became a YouTube favorite.
In 2006, Dave relocated to Long Beach, California, where he released his sophomore release - Stories For Copper. The album, which Dave felt was his greatest achievement, saw the musician again playing most of the instruments, and to his delight, arranging and recording live string parts for many of the album’s twelve tracks. Stories For Copper was very well received in the US, and was welcomed by a foray of rave reviews and radio rotation worldwide.
In November 2010 after 2 years of writing and recording, Dave released his 3rd album - Time Will Tell following a very successful Kickstarter fundraising campaign. The album, which could loosely considered a concept album, features all the lavish arrangements and big hooks for which Stephens has become known.
