Artist Biography by

Dave Titley was born in England, in the Midlands, and was seriously interested in music before he reached his teens. He turned professional in his mid-teens, and made his first recording at the start of the 1970s as the lead singer and guitarist in a progressive rock quartet called Salamander, who left behind one album, entitled The Ten Commandments, released on the Youngblood label. He later gravitated toward more of a lyrical, folk-rock-influenced sound, inspired by the work of Crosby, Stills & Nash and the Eagles. Titley subsequently became a songwriter and studio musician, based in Cornwall. He also played with the Celtic folk outfit Saraband, and collaborated with American singer/songwriter Colin Scott, as well as indulging in a taste for jazz and country music. Titley relocated to the Netherlands in the early '80s, where he was extremely busy as a session guitarist, and very visible on television accompanying most of the top folk and pop artists of the period. He remains active as a singer/songwriter and entertainer in the 21st century.
