The Music of Dave Deporis
Home bg brighter 2500.jpg
Front page logo, Dave Deporis in large lettering with December 23rd, 1976 to August 9th, 2017 written smaller below -- Overlayed on a large gray and dark green photo taken by Dave of dense fog engulfing the treeline at Muir Woods National Monument, a redwood forest he loved and visited frequently while living in Oakland, California.
Dave Deporis posing for a photo while hiking, he wears his favorite plaid shirt open with a t-shirt beneath, a backpack over his shoulders and behind the left, the top of his guitar in a soft shell case is visibly strapped to his back. Behind him a large hill of wiry brush in brown and tan which he is descending. His wildly curling hair juxtaposed against a brighter blue twilight sky with a tiny waxing crescent moon already visible in the top right.
A quote — ‘There’s music that comes from the unknown. Music with a strangeness that is at first both annoying and arresting, music with a depth which proves that it issues from the mind of someone who has known pain and hope and unthinkable sorrow — someone, in other words, who knows a bit about life, and not from the outside, but from the core. Dave is that musician.’ - Peter Himmelman

Small lightning bolts faintly bursting from either side in darker silver and gold and each slightly tinted a different. Above a contact form and mailinglist sign up overlaid on another photo by Dave Deporis of Muir Woods National Park in dense fog - this time deep within the Redwood Forest. Only the trunks of smaller trees are visible in dark browns with some light green moss within a dense medium gray fog .Remainders of old branches and new growth just out from the trunks giving an extra feeling of wildness.
