Dave Ransom

This Austin, TX, singer/songwriter can show you how to smack the living crap out of the acoustic guitar in a good, good way. But he’s actually a really sensitive guy and is not afraid to show it on his debut album, “Safe From the Day.” With influences such as Martin Sexton, Jason Mraz, Marc Broussard, John Mayer, Ani DiFranco, Victor Wooten and Don Ross, this album isn’t just a singer/songwriter’s blog, it’s a demonstration of what the acoustic guitar can do.

Here’s what the press is saying about Dave:

“Dave Ransom may just be one of the best guitarists in the world. Those of you who have seem him play know I’m not just engaging in hyperbole. “Handsome” Ransom, as his female (and some male) fans call him, is known for his ability to slap and tickle an amazing array of sounds out of his guitar…and he sings his ass off…” – The Corkscrew Wine Bar mailer, Houston, TX.

“He’s the reason rock and roll works: an earnest young man with a three-day-old beard, carefully cultivated windswept hair and closed eyes, standing on a makeshift stage with a well-loved guitar in his hands, singing meaningfully into a mike.” – The Houston Press (source)
