About Dave Muse
Dave Muse has been a fixture in pop / rock music for nearly fifty years, with his early ventures rooted in the formative music scene of the late-60’s. His talents have helped shape the sound of more than twenty-five albums (3 Gold, 2 Platinum), eight Top-40 hit singles, as well as countless other projects. His iconic flute intro on the 1976 Firefall hit single “You Are The Woman” has been heard on broadcast radio more than 5,000,000 times. Dave is a founding and current member of Firefall, spent nearly twelve years as a member of southern rock icon The Marshall Tucker Band and toured briefly with Chet McCracken, formerly of the Doobie Bros. Hit makers Bertie Higgins and Pamela Rose have also called on Dave’s talent in the studio. In 2014, Dave was inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame as a member of Firefall.
Dave’s solo work is also an important part of his career, providing an opportunity to share his own music. He released his first solo album Tonal Alchemy in 1981, earning a spot in music history as one of the earliest examples of the “New Age” genre, fusing jazz and funk with a bit of experimental music. One reviewer called it “...a sound that reaches into your soul and alters your perception of what music can be.” While Dave’s other commitments have sometimes taken priority over his solo endeavors, he has still managed to release three more recordings, Fantasies of Love (1983), Firefall Revisited (2016) and Forgotten Journey (2018), with more planned in the near future.
Dave’s current performance schedule combines his Firefall duties with solo performances, clinics and private shows.
When Dave isn't on the road thrilling audiences around the world, he enjoys time at home in Clearwater, Florida with his lovely wife Patricia and an unknown number of foster animals.
