Born and raised in Northern
New Jersey, this guitar slinger got his initial taste of the rock
star life at age ten when he received his first guitar. A red and
gold six-string modeled in the tradition of the legendary Eddie
Van Halen was but the first of the many guitars Dave has blessed
with his talent over the years.
Dedicating endless hours to the craft, Crum
displayed his mastery of the guitar in countless performances throughout
his junior and senior high school years. He would go on to study
at New Jersey City University. As part of their renowned music program,
Dave dabbled in numerous genres, excelling at every style, from
rock to blues, and classical to jazz (not to mention everything
in-between). He has spent years learning from some of the best out
there, such as J.B. Lessin of Soulfinger Ana Maria Rosado of classical
specialty, and jazz guitarist Paul Meyers. He is currently studying
with jazz/fusion specialist Pete McCann. Completing his studies
in 2000, Crum showed his academic prowess by graduating with a degree
in music education.
These days Crum still spends every waking
moment of the day involved in music. After spending his workdays
teaching instrumental music in Ridgefield, Crum heads home to grab
his axe and play with some of New Jersey and New York's finest musicians.
Between turning the youth of America on to music, and pouring his
heart out through performing, Dave continues to practice his craft,
always looking to further his mastery of the guitar. Never satisfied
and fueled by his passion, he pursues perfection in both tone and
technique to raise his ability to the next level and prove why he
is one of the premiere axe-men in the tri-state area.
