Dave Whitty


Dave Whitty is a singer/songwriter from St. John’s, NL. Dave has released 3 solo albums since 2012 and is rolling out his 4th currently.

If you listen to Dave’s music, it won’t take long to hear the pride he has for his home province, capturing Newfoundland’s joie de vivre and beauty. Dave writes and sings about real-life experiences; his folky storytelling style tells tales woven through playful lyrics and infectious melodies about his relationships and his unique perspective. One minute, Dave is cracking the audience up with tales of misadventures with friends, and the next he’s conjuring profound feelings of nostalgia or pain with stories of love, friendship, and the things that make Newfoundland special.

With over 15 years of experience playing live shows, he has molded a one-of-a-kind vibe. His songwriting combines a distinctly East Coast sound with modern themes that resonate with audiences. Dave’s guitar style is another part of his music that makes him unique. Self-taught, he uses a mixture of strumming, flat-picking, and fingerpicking, which, after just a couple of notes, is immediately recognizable as Dave’s.
