Originally from Iowa but now making his home in Oregon, Dave Plaehn is rapidly on the move with his newest release “Radio Sister”; his highly acclaimed 2013 release “Amos Got Soul” has placed him on the hot watch list of independent artists.
Compared to the creative Lyle Lovett, the smooth, cool Daryl Hall and the famous Todd Rundgren; Dave is defintely a man on a mission.
Placed in the genre of blues, adult contemporary, and reggae. Heavily influenced by artists such as Paul Butterfield, Bonnie Raitt, Tracy Nelson, Joni Mitchell and Stevie Wonder; Dave Plaehn is a one of a kind. In a sea of legendary harmonica players like Mickey Raphael, John Popper of the Blues Traveler Band, and the infamous Charlie Musselwhite, Dave Plaehn is earning his place without a doubt.
Released in December of 2014 “Radio Sister” has received excellent reviews. You can stream this new single at; http://daveplaehn.bandcamp.com/
In 1997 Dave received endorsement from Hohner, Inc as a harmonica player and within that same year he was asked to sit in with the OSU Corvallis Symphony. He is outstanding.
