Samantha and Dave woke up one morning, and they were driving. They have, in fact, been driving for years - Samantha wearing the dual hats of troubadour and talkshow host, Dave acting as den mother to underground folk-rockers Speechwriters LLC.
Over the course of their travels, they’ve acquired the usual trophies and scars of the working American songwriter. They’ve played every kind of venue imaginable, sharing stages with artists as diverse as Kylie Minogue, Five For Fighting, Rilo Kiley, and Digital Underground. They’ve been on The Tonight Show, Japanese radio, closed-circuit tv, The WB.
As for their music, the Village Voice called Samantha’s first album “a perfect pop record”, while Dave has won an ASCAP songwriting award every year since 2005. As independent musicians, they have toured more than 30 states, and earned tens of thousands of internet followers solely on the strength of their songs.
Samantha and Dave will be touring the country in spring 2009. This time out, it’s strictly acoustic - no drums allowed.
