“Braden Gates is one of those singer/songwriters that stops your drunken conversation
and makes you say, “Who the **** is that singing?” — Vue Weekly

Gates’ warm and slightly gravelly voice relays stories that are funny and heartbreaking — usually over the course of the same tune. He is a born raconteur who has been compared
with a young Loudon Wainwright.
Full of wit and wisdom, folksy charm and sharp observations, Gates’ compositions are relevant and very rooted in the present —even if he plays that fiddle and picks that guitar like an artist well beyond his years. We were struck by that dichotomy when we first heard him at the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival last year. The Alberta singer/songwriter is only in his mid-twenties.

“Truly, what makes Gunning so remarkable as an entertainer is his rare gift to be able to befriend the audience as a whole from the stage throughout the course of the concert.
– The Guardian
Eleven albums in, Dave Gunning has become a truly masterful songwriter, one who has earned real peer respect from such Canadian folk songwriting legends as Ron Hynes, David Francey, and James Keelaghan. “I grew up listening to people like Ron Hynes,” says Dave. “I look up to them but then it hits me sometimes that I’m their peer and they like my stuff too. It’s a weird headspace, flipping from being a fan to being a peer.”
His latest offering is called Lift, a straight forward acoustic gem.
