This is an archive of the band profile for Dave Pilla.

Pilla (n.): 1. Musical solo artist born of England's North, notable for producing an honest, special brew of music. Characterised by a distinctive blend of life lamenting lyrics and captivating melodies.

Drawing comparisons to the likes of Nick Drake, Jose Gonzalez and Iron & Wine, Dave performs understated acoustic music that tugs at the heartstrings. With an ability to deliver low-fi, bleak storytelling and catchy hooks, his songs somehow sink in as deeply with the discerning muso as with ears trained on Radio 1.

"He has a unique writing style, one that he takes in influences and spits them out, albeit in a gentle manner, with intense yet beautiful harmonies that are carefully woven into his music. Long may he project this style in the way he does now and continue in fine form."
