Take the 5 to the 10 to the 405
Hybrid cars and sidewalk stars
She’s one of a kind
Palm trees and clear blue skies
Drive through the hills to the Hollywood sign
She gets crazy from time to time
But my oh my
When the sun sets on Sunset
Radios playin’ and stoplights changin’
From red to green, green to red
Shes the city of angels, you can’t change her
When her streets get quiet and her clubs get loud
We’ll shine like gold in this tinsel town
It ain’t wrong
So sing along, sing along, sing along
To an L.A. Love Song
She’s a velvet rope and rock ‘n roll
She’s a state mind and who you know
From the 213 to the 310
She’s queen of the West
Bonfires burnin’ on the beach
Her good times keep callin me
Shes the kind I could never leave
And we’ll do it again

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
