Dave Carmichael is a Canadian singer/songwriter who grew up and is currently based in Montreal, Quebec.
Dave's musical journey started in the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, a place very close to his heart. While completing a Theatre Studies degree at Acadia University, Dave soaked up the kitchen party atmosphere and started to develop as a guitarist and songwriter. He gained a reputation as a very entertaining performer and heartfelt lyricist. Upon graduation, Dave worked for several years with a touring theatre troupe as an actor, musician, and puppeteer, which brought him across Canada and the USA. As his involvement became more musical, Dave moved to Halifax to pursue his own music.
Dave Carmichael has since released 3 critically acclaimed albums and received award nominations from the East Coast Music Association, Music Nova Scotia, and the Canadian Folk Music Awards. His songs have been featured in film and television, heard nationally on radio and television, and he has played across Canada, USA, and in parts of Europe. Dave has an obvious respect for traditional roots music and traces of country, blues, folk, bluegrass, and jazz can be heard in his songs. His down to earth, soulful approach to music resonates and continues to reach a growing number of people around the world.
Still very active in theatre, Dave developed a tribute to Gene MacLellan and presented it at Festival Antigonish in August 2006 with members of Gene's original band, where he was musical director the previous season for the presentation of Joni Mitchell:River which drew rave reviews. He also recently starred in a tribute to Buddy Holly at the Stephenville Theatre Festival, as well as in a revival of CBC's "Singalong Jubilee" at Eastern Front Theatre.
