A California based performer with nine albums under his belt, Dave Nachmanoff is known for sophisticated songwriting, clean guitar playing, rich and textured instrumentation, top-notch singing, and most importantly, an energetic show. He's been described as having "an acoustic style that's somewhere between the easygoing charm of Arlo Guthrie and the raw energy of Bruce Springsteen”. A Davis resident, Dave has performed frequently in the Sacramento area, including Harlow's, and has appeared on Capital Public Radio.
"Step Up" is Dave's latest release. It was produced by Ronan Chris Murphy (King Crimson, Steve Morse), and features musicians Bob Malone (John Fogerty), Ian Sheridan (Jason Mraz) and Victor Bisetti (Los Lobos), and vocalists Al Stewart, Rosemary Butler (Jackson Browne and James Taylor), John Wicks of powerpop band The Records, and Liz Bligan. He’s got nine albums in all, including his first, Candy Shower, released in 1997. He's sold over 15,000 recordings, which can be found at Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby and many other outlets.
Nationwide independent music consortium Just Plain Folks honored Dave with the 2001 Songwriter of the Year award. Recently, he has been recognized in three songwriting contests - the USA Songwriting Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards, and the Great American Song Contest. Sing Out! Magazine has praised his “… heartfelt, inspired songwriting … with a delivery both biting and assured.”
