Dave Chose, formerly member of the now-dissolved folk-punk trio Faudrait faire la vaisselle, has been working as a solo artist since 2016, with the help of members from Galaxie and PONI. The Montrealer (via Lac-St-Jean) and competitor in the 21st Francouvertes released his critically acclaimed debut album via Bonsound in 2018. The songs combine his folk-based music with sprawling, grimey guitar fuzz and his own crass, vibrant lyrics.
Dave Chose breathes life into his music with a verbose vocabulary from everywhere between his hometown of L’Ascension-De-Notre-Seigneur and the Montreal neighbourhood Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. His lyrics tell stories about common events, giving them an urban sensibility and making them extraordinary. The singer-songwriter vouches for the magnificently mundane, celebrating both the taste of iced tea from the corner store and the pleasure of rolling his own cigarettes.
This spring, Dave Chose returns with a double single featuring Poffes and De l'inconvénient d'être né, two very personal and distinctive songs demonstrating the variety of musical influences that left their mark the musicians’ repertoire.
