Singer Songwriter

In Switzerland

Dave Curl is an acoustic Swiss singer-songwriter with English-Australian roots, born and raised in Switzerland. He has been passionate about creating and performing his own music for over twenty years, and his music has been streamed more than 1.5 million times on Spotify.

Dave's soulful and authentic folk-pop-rock sound has been featured on over 1900 Spotify playlists, and his music has touched the hearts of many.

His sound draws from elements of folk pop but with its own unique alternative kick adding something ineffable which gives it an edge over others in the genre.

This ironic rock track captures the modern epidemic of disconnection, as people immerse themselves in smartphones rather than meaningful conversation. Inspired by a train journey through the Italian part of Switzerland, Curl was struck by the eerie silence of fellow passengers glued to their screens. Expecting lively chatter, he instead found an irritating scene of silence. This moment sparked the idea of "Don't Talk Anymore". The song serves as an ironic reminder of the importance of meaningful communication in an increasingly virtual world.
