Dave Deporis | Interview

Alan Williamson

Deporis's music is a treasure, buried away from deserving ears, from unknowing ears, but it merits, if not desires, an audience. A voice which does not overpower, nor take the breath away, but commands attention with it's presence. The man, like his music, is vaguely mysterious and although I posed him a series of questions I have not solved the mystery, just made it more tantalizing.

A Story Of A Musician You've Never Heard Of

Peter Himmelmann

"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.”
