Hello there.

My name is Dave Depper. I’m a musician in Portland, Oregon.

More specifically, I sing and play guitar, bass, keyboards, and drums. I am currently on tour playing guitar and keyboards for Ray LaMontagne. We recently played on the Late Show with David Letterman:

I’ve toured, played live, or recorded with lots of bands, a list of which can be found on the People I’ve Played With page. Most recently, I’ve been a member of Fruit Bats, Menomena, and the Corin Tucker Band.

One time I re-recorded Paul McCartney’s Ram all by myself; more about this at the Ram Project page.

In recent times I’ve been composing music for movies, television, and advertisements. I’ve been working with agencies like Search Party, Walker, Marmoset, North, and Beta Petrol. Examples of this, including a demo reel, can be found on the Composition page.

I’m currently working on my first solo record of original music. More on that to come.
