Dave's True Story began when songwriter and guitarist David Cantor and singer Kelly Flint were introduced to each other through a network of New York songwriters and musicians. Kelly suggested that Dave teach her one of his songs, and after singing it as if it were her own, Dave's True Story was born.
In January of 1994, Dave's True Story released their eponymous first album on their own BePop label. It immediately became a best seller at a local music chain and the band sold 10,000 copies at their gigs from Manhattan to Monterey. In June of 1994 they won the prestigious Kerrville New Music award previously won by Lyle Lovett, Suzanne Vega and Michelle Shocked.
The duo have appeared on numerous radio shows and toured the Northeastern U.S., California and Holland, garnering an audience that stretches around the world. Their Chesky releases include Sex Without Bodies and Unauthorized.
