ABOUT DAVE

Davide De Vita (born December 19th, 1990), now known professionally as Dave De Vita, is a Swiss Italian singer, songwriter, and producer.  

His music is an interesting blend that combines the percussive and "dreamy" side of Pop Rock, with a more modern, poetic, groovy, and melodic style, typical of Pop Music and Funk.  

Combining a strong presence with an unmistakable voice the goal is set for international exposure. His debut-single "This You Deserve" has just been released on all digital platforms. 

In 2019 Dave realized it was time to write a new chapter in his life so he decided to take a more personal path - after more than a year of enriching experiences with a Producer from Los Angeles.  

He got back to his original artist name "Dave De Vita" and continued on a more independent route, and he is now producing and recording his first EP. 

Dave's background is based on Music studies; he obtained a Master's Degree in Music (Singing, Performance, and Composition) at the Music College “HEMU” (Haute Ecole de Musique) in Lausanne, Switzerland.  

Despite his young age, Dave already has more than 14 years of experience in the music business with his intense activity as lead singer for several projects as a bandleader and collaborator. It all started with his first band Tipsy Road, in which he was co-founder, lead singer, and co-composer. Between 2008 and 2015 the group released 3 albums and toured Switzerland and Europe.

Dave had a chance to perform for many important events and location (as lead singer, backup singer, and guitar player) also at the Montreux Jazz Festival (seven appearances in five years), the Bierhübeli in Bern, the LAC in Lugano, Théâtre de Vidy in Lausanne, and many more.

The song in question was written during these last months of lockdown, and was produced entirely thanks to the formula of "telework". A song and a message, in all respects the result of these last months in which the whole world has been forced to stop and reflect on their life choices, on their values.

The single was born following the stop of Dave's activities. In fact, before the arrival of this pandemic, Dave was in the recording studio where he was completing the recordings of the songs for his debut EP. These recordings, however - given the interruption of all activities resulting from the health emergency - had to suffer an abrupt interruption. This You Deserve therefore wants to be a "response", but also and above all a preview (albeit in a more intimate and acoustic guise) of what Dave's album will be. The intimate and harmonious sounds of this single almost seem to be the soundtrack to this historical period, and stem from a need for Dave to give a message of hope, despite the many moments of difficulty. The message that accompanies this single acoustic, therefore, wants to bring a positive testimony. The song tells of the difficulties we sometimes have in communicating what we feel to the people who are closest to us, and who are dearest to us. Thoughts that may seem simple at times, but at the same time seem extremely difficult to share. These thoughts - which we sometimes think do not need to be shared - nevertheless represent emotions that if expressed can make a difference. This You Deserve was produced entirely thanks to the telework formula and was recorded remotely and in the “home” recording studios of the various musicians with whom Dave collaborated. The single was composed by Dave De Vita and was produced and arranged by him, in collaboration with Jonas Macullo (who also played the piano). On the guitars, we find Dave De Vita himself together with Daniel Macullo and Joris Amann. The mandolin parts were also recorded by Joris Amann.
