Dave Decker is a friend of mine. Well, it’s 2012 and we’re facebook friends. We’ve talked online a few times, but we’ve never met before. The thing is, after listening to his first solo record I feel like I know him really well. If there is one thing that can be said, it’s that he wears his heart on his sleeve and this record is quite an emotional rollercoaster. The tunes are solid (as are his friends Bill and Todd, who play with him), and I find them stuck in my head quite often. I’m pretty sure there will come a time when we wind up grilling meat and drinking beer together.
