Hi, my name is Dave Connor and I am the owner of Target Sounds Music. I am a singer/songwriter/producer/author and teacher. Music is my lifelong passion; I am 150% committed to it. If I could stay awake for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, working on musical activities, I would. I am also a devoted husband, father and grandfather. This is something else I am whole heartedly committed to, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! As you can see there are simply not enough hours in the day for me, so back to the real world.
I plan to have this website at the heart of everything I work on musically. I have played in bands for many years as a shy singer, and guitarist, playing covers and eventually being songwriter. Firstly, playing in a band named ‘The Green Circles’ as rhythm guitarist. An English mod covers band that were playing to packed audiences in and around Cumbria. Then ‘The Occident’ as guitarist, another mod/punk band playing mainly covers and some select originals to packed audiences in and around Cumbria. Not content with playing covers I then formed a band named ‘Delivo’ as singer/songwriter, playing originals in and around Cumbria and all over the north west of England. Playing many festival main stages, and support to many A list artists.
After leaving Delivo I have been writing, producing, and teaching for myself, and other artists. I write continuously and I am very open to collaborations, with other (serious) writers, or artists looking for a writer to design songs around their particular style and sound. I am also the most patient teacher: for guitar, song writing, recording and production.
Lastly I have also developed a deep
interest in novel writing. Over the last few years I have been teaching myself the art of writing, and found myself to be naturally competent. As with anything I do, once I discover the mechanics, I can then teach it to anyone as I fully understand the meaning of struggle, and yes, I honestly believe anyone can learn if they are committed. So if you want to follow my journey as a singer/songwriter/author and you want to learn how to develop these artistic skills for yourself, then you have come to the right place.
