About Dave Rankin
Dave's Latest Release!
Songs From Waco
Dave takes us back to his Texas roots on this journey to reconnect with an earlier time and longing for small town Texas values. From the women that molded his character in “Girls From Waco” to the barefoot days of public swimming pools and playing with Green army men in “A Texas Town”, Dave reflects on the people and times that create who we are and where we’re from.
What The Critics Are Saying:
- Dave’s song Girls From Waco slaps. It has the kind of blunt lyrical humor the genre requires garnished by plenty of blues licks that’ll keep you bobbing your head while hitting the road to, through, or away from Texas. Lance Schaubert The Showbear Family Circus
This nostalgic project put some beautiful pictures in my mind. I didn’t grow up in TX, but after listening to this rootsy Texas-style album I kinda felt like I did. Matt Black-Sweet Communion Music/A.C.T. Intl
