Brew calms our overloaded attention on insightful interview

Showing us that classical connection and collaborating with artists all over the world, the likeable Dave from Brew had a chat with us all about his extraordinary career which started when he was just 7 years old. With his 6-track EP Frontier from 2022 still fresh in the memory and gliding in with 2023’s Editor of All Things, we learn about that footie passion infused with creative freedom.

Hello there Brew. Where exactly in the world do we find you today and how did you get into music?

Dave: I currently live in London (UK) having grown up in Yorkshire. My parents were both classical musicians and I have always been surrounded by music from a young age. I started playing the piano when I was 7 and my older brother’s love of Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd introduced me to a whole new world of sound and fun.

Please tell us about your music vision and what do you hope to achieve long-term.

Dave: I came to the realisation that I need to make music I like as opposed to trying to fit in elsewhere, this has liberated me creatively and I hope that people can connect in some way to the songs as they are essentially reflections of me (sounds cheesy I know but it’s true!)

My ideal in the future is to collaborate with other artists and musicians and explore the world some more through writing.

When you close your eyes and imagine your ideal place to create, what does it look like and where is it?

Dave: Home, sat at the piano with a fresh cup of tea and my kids happily entertaining themselves upstairs so I can get lost in a new idea.

You have stated that a song a month is the mission. What inspired you to do this and who are you working with/hope to work with?

Dave: I just turned 40 and don’t want any regrets, I also like a challenge! I used to compose for computer games and had regular deadlines so imposing some structure is helpful to me.

I’m working mainly with the incredible singer Deza at present. I have a few more grooved/soulful ideas in the pipeline also so I may look for another singer at some point too.

What’s the best thing about being a musician?

Dave: Complete Creative freedom and always room to improve. I’m a big football fan and it brings people together, music is unique also in that it does the same thing. I’ve yet to meet someone who doesn’t like music.

What’s the most important piece of advice you’ve ever received in your life?

Dave: It’s better to be kind than to be right.

Last, if you could have a superpower for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

Dave: I could sing! I’d love to be a singer-songwriter but it wasn’t meant to be.
