An accomplished veteran of the Pittsburgh, Midwest and East Coast music scenes since 1965, Dave Molter counts The Beatles as his primary influence.
“Foolish Heart,” Dave’s debut EP, has produced four No. 1 singles since its release in September 2019. “Oh Woman, Don’t You Cry,” a track not on the EP, debuted at #1 on Radio VGR in the UK and quickly grabbed the top spot on two more indie radio charts. “Oh Woman” placed in the Top 10 “Best of 2019” on three indie radio stations year-end lists. Dave also came in 25th among more than 400 artists nominated for “Artist of the Year” on Radio TFSC, Germany. Dave is a finalist in two categories of the 2020 International Singer Songwriter (ISSA) Awards: USA Male Rising star and USA Male Single of the Year (“Oh Woman, Don’t You Cry”). His debut single, “Mid-Century Man,” has been in the Top 10 listener requests on ZTR.FM radio in Fort Worth, Texas, since Memorial Day, 2019.
The songs on “Foolish Heart” are an eclectic mix of styles reflecting the varied influences Dave listened to while growing up in the Sixties as well as the influences of world music, reggae, prog rock, psychedelia, Phil Spector, Brian Wilson, Peter Gabriel and many others.
Recorded at Diversity Studio in Pittsburgh, PA, “Foolish Heart” was co-produced and engineered by multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Buddy Hall. The title song features outstanding guitar work by Steve Dudas, who played with Ringo Starr and the Roundheads for more than a decade and continues to record and write with the former Beatle.
