Dave Rave approached this new album as a journey. Dave's original journey began at Grant Avenue studio where he began his career with Daniel Lanois at the helm. The beginning of this journey brought Dave back to Grant Avenue to work with one of its brightest lights, Amy King. The journey continued on to New Jersey where he got reacquainted with Gary Pig Gold and John Huelbig (Paul Simon). It was then on to England and the new groove of the Plastic Heroes followed by a trip to Paris to capture the wild drums of Christophe DesChamps (Celine Dion,Vince Taylor). The journey then winded its way back to Niagara Falls to producer Paul Gigliotti (Wave) and the Maddhatters, who recently played with Bruce Springsteen. Then it was off to the country where Dave was able to conduct musical experiments with The Trews, Mark Foley and producer Dave King at his studio, The Barn. Returning to New York, Dave Rave continued the journey with producer/songwriter Michael Mazzarella and the group Sonic Blue Sound Review, a group of New York pop allstars, and then headed over to Long Island to work with long time collaborator Mark McCarron. To complete the circle Dave reunited with fellow Shaker, Rick Andrew at his son, Jamie Andrew's,
The production of LIVE WITH WHAT YOU KNOW was directed by Lisa Millar, mastered by Paul Intson with Photography and Design by Ralph Alfonso.
Dave's new album was recently released in the US to be followed by Canada, UK, Germany and Holland in the coming months.

SPECIAL GUEST: LAUREN AGNELLI
LAUREN AGNELLI -- BACK IN THE HAMMER AGAIN!
Back in the ‘80’s, the Washington Squares were on tour in Ontario, with Hamilton, Ontario as one of their first stops. At McMaster’s infamous RAThskellar, the raucous folk trio rocked away the night – with Hamilton’s rock royalty present, most notably Dave Rave and friends. In 1990, Dave and Lauren began working together, and all through the ‘90’s, Lauren Agnelli called the Hammer her second home. On Saturday, June 26th, Lauren comes home to the Hammer to join Dave onstage for his new CD release (LIVE WITH WHAT YOU KNOW) party, playing in his band and playing a set of her own songs as well. For 20 years, Dave and Lauren have been songwriting partners, and that tradition continues with most of the music they’ll be making at Fenian Films at the big Dave Rave CD release party. According to Lauren, another Hamilton tradition continues: “There are still more Tim Horton’s coffee shops in the Hammer than any other city I’ve seen – it amazed me back in the ‘80’s, and it still continues to astonish,” she marvels.
