Dave Laurence

Oklahoma City, OK
Singer/Songwriter, Folk Rock, Americana, Pop, Storytelling
Singer-songwriter Dave Laurence has crafted an energetic blend of rock, pop, jazz, and country, sometimes infused with the dry humor from his New England roots. He refers to this mix as simply “Fun Acoustic Music.” It resonates with audiences without fitting into any specific genre.

Dave started out as a bassist for several bands in his hometown of Portland, Maine from the late 1970s through the mid-1980s. He began performing solo in 1987, with stops in Boston and Providence before migrating south to Oklahoma City in 1995. He then performed throughout Oklahoma and the Midwest, including appearances at the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival.

After a hiatus from 2003-2012, Dave returned to the stage and has not looked back, logging performances from Mexico to Maine. He has released three albums since his return: Every Lonesome Road (2012), Analog Soul (2015), and Right Here (2017). In 2022, Dave retired from his government job to pursue music full time. He is working on his fourth record, Chrome On The Range, due for release later in 2024.

Now primarily an acoustic guitarist, Dave still enjoys playing bass, as well as keyboards, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica, percussion, and other instruments. He likes to perform and record with other musicians when time permits. When cover tunes are called for, Dave favors pop-rock from the 1970s and 1980s, and goes out of his way to find songs that most other acoustic artists aren’t playing.
