Sidewalk Dave / Bio

There is something "oddly american" about Sidewalk Dave’s new 90’s drenched release Hard On Romance. In 2007, the band forged a rebellious brotherhood together in New Haven, CT. The often nomadic David Van Witt has relocated the band to Brooklyn in conjunction with their latest release, Hard On Romance. They have shared the stage with rockers with roots Deer Tick, The Low Anthem, O’Death, and Woods. Producer Bill Readey at Fuzzy Rainbow Production captures the symbiotic magic of their live set - from the confessional off- kilter waltz of ‘Cayenne’ to the dreamy, dark psychedelia of ‘Honey Bee’ and the good ole four-to-the-floor rock ‘n roll on ‘Soft Portal’, all of it drips wet with sunrise regrets.

Their last full-length, Gold Liquid Mischief was credited to 3 Best of 2010 lists and bold national press like this; “Consider them The Beatles, on whiskey," No Depression (Mar 28, 2010). After that “Can’t Be Your Friend” was hailed as "...easily one of the best releases of 2011" CT.com (Dec 14, 2011).
