With a background in musical theatre and performance, Dave brings lots of energy to the Royal Foundlings live shows. It is not uncommon to see Dave leap from the stage into the audience to tear into a guitar solo or just for the fun of it!
From a young age, Dave was involved in the secular music scene, playing in a number of bands around Glasgow. At the age of 15, Dave started leading worship in his local church as well as promoting shows for bands around Glasgow. However, after getting married at 18 Dave decided to put his aspirations of a career in music on hold, choosing to focus on his family, leading worship at his local church and becoming a Youth Pastor.
However, God had other plans…
In January 2009, Dave decided to form a band worthy of representing God across the country and by May, the first line up of Royal Foundlings was in place! Band members may have changed over the years, but the original vision still holds true.
As well as the Music Ministry Dave is also the chaplain to Airdieonians where he provides pastoral support where needed to the players and staff of the football club.
