“The greatest tracks you’ve never heard of…”

- Billboard

- Variety

"...Simultaneously lush, voluptuous and uncompromising...he’s the alternative blues version of Robert Palmer: organic yet sophisticated...Imagine Jack White merging his talents with those of Robert Palmer and you’ll have an idea of just how good Dave Cavalier’s Howl is."

- Randy Radic, The Huffington Post

“Cavalier’s vocal delivery transmits a sense of urgency that begs the listener to really pay attention.”

- Hunter T. & Ryan Cassata, Rock the Pigeon

“ [Damage Is Done] has more emotion in it than some entire albums I’ve listened to in the past.”

- Greg Jones, Ear To The Ground Music

- Conversations LIVE with Cyrus Webb

“ ‘Talk is Cheap’ contains an evergreen storyline, adoring vocals, and a lush instrumentation embedded with complimentary sounds.”


"...combining a musical beauty and individual sense of arrangement with powerful and emotive lyricism...that is truly undeniable in every sense of the word."

- Ben Ali, Keep Walking Music

“This song is my new “bad habit” because no matter what, I can’t stop listening to it.”

"Filled with luscious contradictions...You can't help but love him and his music, they are one in the same."

-Hal Winer, Grammy Nominated Mixing Engineer


"Deemed “LA Blues”... Cavalier has created a niche in a landscape of disposable music & entertainment that is decidedly individual. His playing style has been compared to modern day bluesman, Gary Clark Jr, and even guitar icon, Jimi Hendrix, creating an emotionally raw and visceral live atmosphere for audiences with an undercurrent that is seductive & stylish."

"I can’t figure out what this song reminds me of, but I can tell you it’s a hot scene in a place you want to be. There’s an energy here that is equal parts Elvis and someone far more recent (maybe Justin Timberlake?). Stylistically it blends the 60s and 70s I suppose, but it has a freshness that’s sure to get people up out of their seats to that dancefloor."

- EarToTheGround Music

"Dave Cavalier's unique style of "LA Blues" combines the raucous authenticity of modern bluesman such as Gary Clark Jr. with the contemporary, alternative arena rock sound of artists such as Kings of Leon, all with the stylish, sophisticated imaging of a John Varvatos ad. The ceiling for this project is high so climb aboard for the ride."

- Steve Tramposch, A&R and Management Exec

"Dave Cavalier Trio is an unapologetic blend of blues-based modern alternative rock bringing the soul of Chicago and the grit of Hollywood together in poetic mastery."

- OC Weekly

"Dave Cavalier's music captivates the listener, with driving and powerful guitar riffs...but in all this fun and exhilarating chaos, his smart and melodic choruses thrust each song to another level."

- Jonny Radtke, Guitarist/Producer: Filter, Krewella, & Kill Hannah

- Pipeman Interview on location at Bourbon & Beyond

 "...Alt-blues singer-songwriter, Dave Cavalier, has masterfully created music throughout his acclaimed career..."

- Karen Benardello, Shockya

- Laura Lou, Centerstage Magazine


"A modern day bluesman and one hell of a live performer, pairing a raw energetic talent with an easy going personality that is stylish & fearless."
