Chicago Singer/Songwriter, Dave Tamkin, currently resides in Boulder, CO. He has created his own unique style of rhythmic-acoustic sounds that's based around a fresh musical vision. His shows vary from intimate solo acoustic performances to a full band experience (dBsound.Co) encapsulating a mixture of personal lyrics and skilled songwriting set against a high-energy percussive backbone.
He's shared the stage with Guster, The Samples, Rusted Root, Donavon Frankenreiter, Butch Walker, Freddy Jones Band, Eric Hutchinson, Willy Porter, The Violent Femmes, and Peter Mulvey to name a few. Tamkin has a style that's hard to resist. His lyrics are unabashedly honest and his passion for playing is undying.
“I’VE HAD IT ON REPEAT FOR A WEEK AND CAN DECLARE IT THE BEST COLLECTION OF LOCAL TUNES I’VE HEARD IN QUITE SOME TIME.”

“TAMKIN HAS DEVELOPED A UNIQUE STYLE THAT HAS CONVERTED AN ACOUSTIC GUITAR INTO AN ECLECTIC COLLECTION OF UNIQUE SOUNDES THAT I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED.”
