"Dave Gunning is the next big thing in the True North of Song, an artist as compelling, as assured and attentive to every nuance of the writing and performing process as Lightfoot, Cockburn and Stan Rogers before him." — Toronto Star
Dave Gunning has been acclaimed as one of Canada's best up-and-coming singer-songwriters. A charismatic performer, Dave is known for infusing his shows with his own brand of humourous tales and touching commentary on the everyday, bringing a new vibrance, energy and life to his heartfelt songs. Blending sensitive folk and innovative arrangements to his original and traditional songs, Gunning is rapidly building a solid audience fan base wherever he performs. Recently, picking up two 2008 East Coast Music Awards for Male Artist of the Year and Folk Recording of the Year for his sixth recording, "House For Sale", Gunning has solidified his place as a respected songwriter and performer.
