He's been called "North Carolina's #1 Blue-eyed Blues singer"... & is a winner of the prestigious Low Country Blues Bash (February 1996). His 3rd CD brought him recognition from the music editor of ChristianityToday.com as "One of The Top Indie Artists of 2002"... & his 4th effort, "Thank The Lord", crossed over onto the Southern Gospel charts (Singing News Top 80 -October 2005). He recently teamed up with harmonica master, Larry Giles. Piano Dave & Harmonica Larry are currently rehearsing material for a new CD.
On the blues circuit in the mid-90's, Dave closed his shows with a song about the power of prayer... & when he was sticken by a severe stroke while preparing for a European tour, he experienced prayer's awesome power. Now, 16 years after being told his music career may be over, Dave Foraker shows no indication of even slowing down.
He shares his blues-based music, his stories & his personal testimony anywhere God opens the doors of opportunity... from nursing homes, asisted-care facilities, rehab hospitals & prisons... to Christian coffeehouses & churches... & Foraker has also been performing at The Biltmore Estate, "America's Largest Home", for the last 15 years.
In 2013, God willing... Dave will celebrate 50 years of "poundin' piano, tellin' stories, singin' the blues... & testifyin' 'bout Jesus!"
