Biographical Notes

David George Blackmore was born in a small town in Newfoundland and grew up with music all around him. On his father's side were guitar players and singers, and on his mother's side were organ players, accordion players, and more singers. So he was off to a good start. David started banging on the piano at the age of four but gave that up at the age of six for a love of strings. He started teaching guitar in his hometown of Port Aux Basques, continuing to teach there for 21 years. While growing up, he played lead, rhythm and bass guitars in three country bands. Artists like Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and Hank Williams, Sr sculpted David's singing, playing and songwriting. As a guitar instructor, he learned the need for patience when creating music. He has always helped other people develop their style of music but had never done anything with his own music. David feels the art of old time country music is slipping away from us. He says the days of the old outlaws are a big part of our country music history and he wanted, with respect to the old country artists, to bring old-time country back in a new way. So he decided to release his first recording as a country album. In more ways than one his dad was the reason for David's first album. He taught him to play guitar and encouraged him to play every day. David, therefore, dedicated his first CD to a very kind hearted man… his father.
