There are stories that wash over you like a tide, and then there are stories that grab you by the heart. Dave Gunning has made a point of finding the latter and wrapping them up in song since he broke upon the East Coast music scene in Canada back in 1997. Writing from a sonic menu that includes flavors of Irish, Scottish, folk and country musical styles, Dave transcends genre with songs that fill your senses and touch your soul. Dave’s 10th album No More Pennies is inarguably his finest collection of songs to date. Dave and his song, These Hands were awarded Song of the Year at the 2013 East Coast Music Awards and picked up nominations for Folk Recording and Fans Choice Entertainer of the Year.
