The Light of Day ... Dave Reynolds

"As a musician, the hardest thing to understand is what your identity is. You really have to believe in yourself," says Dave Reynolds, South Africa’s leading Steel pan player, SAMRO Award WINNING composer and acoustic guitarist. "We must pretend that the music industry as we knew it, never existed."

"iStart2 grow as a human being when I meet different people in South Africa"
- Dave Reynolds

Dave believes we as South Africans are disconnected from one another. He recommends that you get out of your world and get into someone elses: "We all need to be bold and courageous and make a difference. We need to create a world where people care more about each other." 

We chatted to Dave about his career, his album The Light of Day and his views on Sustainability-through-Art. "We need sound to add value to information," says he.

To listen to some of the songs from his album and the interview, just click play:
