Dave Sterling wrote his first two songs at age five, and has been writing piano music and performing ever since. Growing up in Texas, Dave was classically trained on the piano, but also developed an appreciation for the varied sounds of jazz, rock, and country. The result of these influences can be heard in Dave's music - beautiful melodies supported with a high-energy style of playing. His music has been featured in concerts, dance performances, and promotional materials for several organizations. Dave has performed with world-class musicians, and as traveled throughout Europe, performing in several countries. Dave writes and performs all of his own music, which is inspired by the many people and places that have been part of his life. From strangers on the back roads of Europe, to family and friends near and far, a multitude of influences have contributed to his compositions. Dave's first studio recording, Tomorrow, received outstanding reviews from many in the music community; "Outstanding", and "Awesome CD" were typical comments. Dave recently completed his next CD, Along the Curve. Like his prior recordings, Along the Curve features all-original material, including some of Dave's most beautiful melodies, such as "The Offering" and "Stephanie's Lullaby". Dave is also working with noted Dallas arranger, composer, and conductor Steve Bayless, having several of his compositions transcribed for orchestra. All of these songs are available for performance with piano and symphonic groups of any size. Dave occasionally performs to enthusiastic crowds in numerous venues around Dallas, Texas, where he lives with his wife and two dogs.
