Dave Hogan is a songwriter and musician from Bridgeport, Connecticut. A veteran of three critically-acclaimed music groups, Red One, The Great Upsetters and The Rafter Bats, he began his solo music career in 2006.
Beyond his established talents as a songwriter, he is a guitarist and vocalist. His musical style ranges from acoustic Americana and bluegrass to electric-guitar driven alt. country, to improvisational jam band arrangements.
After the dissolution of The Rafter Bats, Dave formed the rock group Graylight Campfire, who released albums in October 2008 and February 2010. In late 2009, Dave was invited to participate in a tribute album for Golden Microphone Records, titled Not Before My Time: The Amy O'Neill Songbook (IndepenDisc). Dave collaborated with Jason P. Krug and Carmen Champagne (of the indie rock duo The Grimm Generation) on their tour and new album, which was released in Spring 2011.
During 2010, invitations were made to friends; musicians Dave has worked with over the years, to collaborate on some of his songs. Fun Box, the new album featuring 10 original songs composed and performed by Dave Hogan and his "co-conspirators," was released in the Spring of 2011.
Dave's been playing a seemingly endless string of gigs, and has been a repeat guest of The Gathering of the Vibes, Wormtown, Scottypaluza, Berkfest and Keene Music festivals.
