Call him "the poet for the common man's search for Christianity." Dave Pettigrew proves worthy of the title through his collection of thought-provoking music for life.
His multiple releases, The Walk, Every Minute Miracles, Somebody I'm Supposed To Be, Solo Volumes 1 & 2, Anchors & the Christmas ep, show that he is a consistent and lyrically wide-reaching breath of fresh air in Christian music as he pursues his ongoing ministry mission through song to bring the "rubber meets the road" realities of everyday life into focus with God.
The Rhode Island born singer/songwriter was selected among the Top 20 new emerging artists in contemporary Christian music, has opened for the likes of Michael W. Smith, Mercyme, Addison Road, Thousand Foot Krutch, Lincoln Brewster and Mark Schultz amongst others, is a World Vision Artist Associate & also a worship leader at his home church in New Jersey.
Dave Pettigrew's unique form of relevant inspirational music with contemporary pop music leanings and catchy hooks is set to the beat of life. Finding his source of inspiration in a world struggling for answers-his specialty is challenging intellect and turning hearts with his thoughtful, thought provoking lyrics to realize the final simplicity of the fact that, as the writer himself frames it best, "God is in the business of doing every minute miracles from the moment we open our eyes each day. My job is just to open my own eyes and my listener's eyes to that reality."
A graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, with majors in music business and arranging, Dave's quest for the creative took him to New York where he ultimately ended up with more opportunities as a singer than his original plans as a sax player. Now based in New Jersey, he actively tours with his band throughout the northeastern United States.
As proven by his releases, Dave has found a powerful creative alliance with fellow Berklee grad, Frank Di Minno, his producer and co-writer on much of the music.
Dave is also a World Vision Artist Associate. Using his music as a vehicle to speak on behalf of the poorest of the poor, each of his shows gives his audience the ability to sponsor a child and save a life.
