Who is this? and what am I listening to?

Dave Hanley grew up among the open orchards of the Central Valley in California, becoming a self-taught musician at an early age and creating a place for himself in the local music scene. His first solo album, Gifthorse, was released in 2005, and in 2009 he won the Modesto Area Music Awards for Best Americana music.

"This is music rooted in bluegrass, forged in a danky swamp by back-beat heart broken angels and harvested from the black, lush soil of the Central Valley"
