Meet the Author

Hi! My Name is Dave Greene. I'm a singer/songwriter/guitar player.
I've been playing, performing and writing songs for 31 years. I've published myself. I've been in numerous bands and projects over the years. I've been in all original rock bands, a variety of cover bands. But my most fulfilling experience has been writing my own material. I have several credits on CD's and tapes of all the different projects I've been in. I started singing at age 12 and playing at age 15. I took formal lessons for singing and I'm a self taught guitar player. I have countless hours of recording, singing, performing, playing and teaching. I still play and perform on a regular basis. In 2008 I launched BDK Music Group, LLC. Which is home to my publishing house and music school.
