What is your involvement in music?
I am a singer/songwriter.
How best do you see your involvement here developing?
just an associate member
Dave Desmelik has established himself as an accomplished and rising singer/songwriter whose music might best be described as Americana or Alt/Country. Drawing upon influences from country to bluegrass to blues to rock n’ roll, Desmelik writes and performs a unique blend of songs.

Growing up in Alpharetta, Georgia, music affected Dave early. He started playing bass guitar in his high school jazz band, as well as cello in his high school orchestra, while also learning the guitar. Playing guitar, writing music, and singing songs became a part of Dave’s life, but it wasn’t until he moved to Flagstaff, Arizona that his songwriting would really take hold. During his time in Arizona, Dave played and wrote songs with such acts as The John Treitor Band, Big Jim and the Twins, and Onus B. Johnson. Onus B Johnson has released two CDs, “Johnson Family Jewels” (1998) and “Box of Moonlight” (2000) on which Dave’s songwriting is a key ingredient. Dave has released six independent CDs, “Move On” (1998), “Have Another” (2001), “Afterthoughts” (2003), “When Your Eyes Are Closed” (2005), “Unheard Of” (2007) and “Onlooker” (2009).

Dave returned to his southeastern roots in 2003, and is currently living in western North Carolina, where he has been performing regionally as a solo artist and with his band. At the present time, Dave Desmelik continues to write songs and play music that is consistent and identifiable to his growing fan base.

"Desmelik's brand of Americana is the kind that makes you neither cry in your beer nor suck it down at a grim pace. His is the kind that makes you stop drinking for just a moment to acknowledge it with an emotional nod, a shiver of recognition that touches your own experience."
-Joe Sample (Focus Newspaper)
