biography

Born & raised among long white clouds in the windy city of Wellington, Singer/Songwriter Dave Blennerhassett now calls Sydney home. His earliest musical memories intermingle his parents singing Gilbert & Sullivan with friends, his brother discovering guitar, and his eldest sister playing a Beatles single of “All my loving”, until the grooves wore off. This unique musical foundation underpins an innate harmonic intelligence, and multi instrumental skills.

A Blennerhassett song delivers a potent package of humour and pathos, moving through accessible melodic hooks, on a bed of carefully crafted rhythms. Dave’s newly released single  “Happiness…”is a blend of blues/rock/pop tunes that explore his journey through the changing countryside of life, love and that precarious quality-happiness. The album Fifty Two Mondays will be available for online purchase & streaming pleasure  in early 2018.

“… a wonderfully emotive voice and beautiful songs…”
Keith Armitage, Songwriters Live

When playing live Dave Blennerhassett plays Guitar, Gene Maynard is on Drums, Paul Kolbe on Bass , Rob Hardy on Guitar, and last but not least- brother Steve Blennerhassett  has been known to grace the stage when he’s in town, on Acoustic guitar and Mandolin.
