Biography

Raised in Pine Bluff, Arkansas (home to blues legends Big Bill Broonzy and Cedell Davis), Dave Sadler began playing guitar at the age of twelve. Coming from a musical household, which includes a distant relation to Johnny Cash, a grandfather who was an amateur minstrel singer, and a mother who was a piano teacher - it is no small surprise that Dave continued the musical journey. Raised on the edge of the Delta, blues inspired music surrounded Dave. Where a typical kid might have been found listening to the latest top 40 rock hit, Dave, a self-taught musician who plays by ear, would often be found locked away in his room listening to the likes of B.B. King and Elmore James, trying to emulate their playing styles.

Also heavily influenced by modern players such as Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Stevie Ray Vaughn and others, Dave’s playing style is a blend of blues, rock, jazz and funk utilizing both electric and acoustic guitars.

Fourth Street Ruckus (2012):

If you like your blues hard-driving, then you will enjoy guitarist Dave Sadler’s new single release, “Fourth Street Ruckus”, a frenetic paced, big blues sound with blistering harmonica and guitar work accompanied by the precision horn work of Dan Cipriano. Roly Platt, one of Canada’s premiere diatonic harmonica players teams with Dave on this title track for the new EP, “Fourth Street Ruckus”, scheduled for release in 2012. Platt, a Toronto native, has become a sought-after live and studio musician due to his versatility and skill.
