"Music is a gift from God", muses singer-songwriter
Dave Argentati, "and songwriters have a responsibility to share
the gift. I want my songs, which are birthed from my experiences
and wounds, to express for others what they cannot express themselves."
Dave Argentati grew up during a time when a kid could ride his bike sunup
to sunset and no one worried. When Yusuf Islam was called Cat Stevens. Fun
for him was spending his
evenings perfecting James Taylor licks and pondering Jackson Browne lyrics.
A rich heritage of great songwriters has influenced his own unique style,
making smiles and tears commonplace at his concerts as he shares with passion
and vulnerability his
life through music. Whether he is singing about a broken relationship, new
love found, or a Vietnam Vet he met on the street, listeners experience
the heartfelt emotion these songs evoke. You can still find Dave riding
his bike around town at sunset. But you won't find him working on James
Taylor songs. He's too busy working on his own.
