Utica, MI (PressExposure) November 24, 2009 -- Dave âHolidayâ Sylvester recently released âThe Thanksgiving Songâ. He created this catchy song to be an anthem for the holidays. âThis piece was specifically to honor Thanksgiving. I wanted to write music, sing, and dance, but was responsible for playing drums in a bandâ, said Dave.
Since he was 5 years old, Dave âHolidayâ Sylvester has been involved in music. After his older brother Gerald joined the school marching band, he began teaching Dave drum patterns on their family washing machine. This maneuver eventually led to their mother to buying them an actual drum set. From there, Dave learned how to play the keyboards, bass, and sing lead and backup vocals in addition to the drums.
Drawing influence from such bands as Earth, Wind, and Fire, Barry White, Kool & the Gang, The Jackson 5, and the Commodores, Dave learned to create harmonies and add texture to his songwriting and playing capabilities. He then delved into the world of recording and learned how to compliment his own style of songwriting and layer the vocals to his songs using a 4 track. However, his passion for recording started previously with just two tape recorders. He would record one track on one tape recorder, and then simultaneously play it back while recording a second track on another tape recorder.
His new single âThe Thanksgiving Songâ was created specifically for the holiday using Daveâs unique approach to music as well as his homemade recording style. Today he uses a computer program called Cubase for recording in own more advanced studio. âThe Thanksgiving Songâ is a piece of Soul and Pop with R&B music that Dave hopes will become an anthem for an important holiday seldom associated with it's own music.
âThe Thanksgiving Songâ is currently available for purchase on Itunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, Napster, CD Baby, Nokia, and E-Music. Dave âHolidayâ Sylvester is also currently putting the finishing touches on his first full-length album.
