Our Story

Dave used to work as a full-time activist and field biologist in South America and New York City. Since resuming his musical career in 2010 He has released 8 albums. He tours with his “Zookeepers” in Europe and the States.

The Zookeepers tour for causes. They are a non-profit, fringe, folk-rock protest band. You can help them pay for mileage, here. 25 dollars gets you a free copy of their award winning album “Book of ZOO“.
