Dave Haupert EP
In 2003, with a newly reignited passion for Christ after attending a Promise Keeper's event, Dave began using his musical and creative gifts to express his faith, and encourage others along with theirs. It was then when he was able to put together what previously seemed like an odd combination of hobbies, gifts, and interests- from the creative and artistic side of writing, graphic and video arts, and musical composition and performance, to the more analytical side of computers and software programming, and the business sense afforded by running his own software company over the last 8 years. Suddenly as he began working on writing, recording, and then releasing CD singles on the web, he realized these gifts could be used together for delivering a complete musical package. Now two years later, his first CD is available for purchase- a 6 song EP featuring songs about faith and family and the challenges that life brings to both. The style is contemporary and classic at the same time, derived from his wide diversity of tastes in Comtemporary Christian Pop and Rock to smooth jazz flavorings, from intimate standards to swelling orchestral ballads. Dave's desires for the release are humble but hopeful, 'If I can lead just one person back to the arms of the one who gave them life, all the effort of the past few years will be a resounding success!'. Dave Haupert has been selected as a regional semi-finalist in the 2004 Exalting Him talent contest as well as a national semifinalist in the CCMNI 2005 Talent search for his original music and performance abilities.
