Hello there.

Hey there! My name is Dave Depper. I’m a multi-instrumentalist in Portland, Oregon.

I play guitar for Death Cab for Cutie. We’ll be touring the world in 2015 in support of DCFC’s new record, Kintsugi.

Before that, I played guitar and keyboards for Grammy-award winning singer/songwriter and swell fellow Ray LaMontagne.

Sometimes I do a bit of writing. Here a piece about touring that I recently penned for The Talkhouse.

I’ve toured, played live, or recorded with lots of other folks… perhaps we should take a stroll over to the People I’ve Played With page?

When I’m not doing that, I compose and record original, licensable music. Examples of this, including a demo reel, can be found on the Composition page.

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

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