Tadley guitarist who has played with the likes of Eric Clapton and Peter Green releases charity album
A TADLEY guitarist, who has played with some of the musical greats, is today releasing a new album worldwide – and part of the profits will go to a local charity.
Dave Reece, above, of Crookham Close, is releasing rock album ‘As we stood before tomorrow’ through label Acorn Music.
Dave, who is a guitarist, songwriter and private guitar teacher, has had success with his previous album ‘Clown for the day’, from which tracks received international airplay and were used for a BBC documentary.
He has previously performed with Eric Clapton and Peter Green, founder of Fleetwood Mac – the band which Dave’s cousin Christine McVie used to sing with.
He said his latest album, which is available to download online, is influenced by songwriters including Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.
He added: “From the age of four, I knew that all I wanted to do was play the guitar, and at 17 I became a professional musician and songwriter.”
A total of 25 per cent of profits from sales of the album will be donated to Wessex Cancer Trust, a charity which provides local cancer care support services for patients and families living with cancer across Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, and beyond.The charity offers both practical and emotional support.
Kim Lawford, deputy to the chief executive at Wessex Cancer Trust, said: “We are delighted that Dave has recorded a new album, and thank him for his support to help raise much-needed funds to help cancer patients in the local area.”
