Growing up as the youngest of five children in the Iowa town of Cedar Rapids, Dave Zobl's childhood could easily read like an episode of Wonder Years. But his songs tell of a man who has experienced struggles as well. Dave Zobl's writing is inspired by those experiences. His debut CD, Best Day Yet, conjures up images of the young Iowa boy dreaming of going to the moon from his backyard, and of the man who realizes his aging father is not invincible. With the release of his second CD, Chapters, Zobl's evolution as a songwriter is evident. His songs display a depth and sense of humor that can leave you laughing, contemplating and humming along all at the same time. Singer /songwriter Celeste Krenz comments, 'Dave's lyric's and music move you to appreciate everyday life...almost like looking back on what has not yet come. His writing is intelligent and adds a totally fresh perspective to the music scene.' Producer Bob Tyler, who also produced Zobl's debut CD, brought together some of Denver's heaviest players for the new release, Chapters, but the songs are not overshadowed. Strong arrangements and tasteful back up only make the Dave's writing shine brighter. With former Subdudes, John Magnie on piano, accordion, harmonica and trumpet, Steve Amedee on percussion, E-Town's Chris Engleman on bass, Jeremy Lawton on B-3, bluegrass staple Jerry Mills on mandolin, Bob Rebholtz on saxophone, Tom Baker on trumpet, Hannah Alkire on cello, Brian McRae on percussion, Tim Cook on background vocals and Tyler weaving his melodic lead guitar and background vocals throughout, Chapters is like a good book that you won't want to put down.
