Best Acoustic Performer 2000

"With a full voice that embodies the earthiness of Tracy Chapman and the warmth of Don McLean, Pahanish sings about a “dark night of the soul” (“Providence”), humanity (“Only Human”) and making the world a better place (“Billy the Kid”)."
- Performing Songwriter Magazine

"Dave Pahanish is a dynamite singer-songwriter... Long after your first listen, you will hear these songs... again and again. If it were ever possible to wear out a CD... you would do so with this recording. Truly a terrific, and inspiring CD."
- David Perozzi, ABC News

#1 CD
on's top 10 for 2000

Pahanish reveals a passionate collection of intimate lyrics and soulful melodies with his sophomore release Shine.

He reflects the conviction of artists like Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and Van Morrison. Like these artists, his music resonates the content of this period captured in current pop production.

At first listen, Shine seems somehow familiar and with continued visits a deeper relationship is easily established. The music leads the listener down paths of their own life taking them through seasons and experiences that seem to play back a personal yearbook of sorts. This CD will not leave your player.


The story of singer, songwriter Dave Pahanish began in southern Pennsylvania. Born in Rice's Landing, PA in the early 70's, his musical career started as a piano student. While waiting for a lesson one-summer afternoon, the sounds of a guitar rehearsal next door caught his ear. From that moment he was inseparable from his guitar. 

Pahanish spent the years to come writing of life and about his one true love. He perfected his craft playing in coffeehouses and busking in parks across Middle America. These travels created the stories of Anywhere. The story of lost friendship was the inspiration for "My Friends to Me". It focuses on the essence of relationship that is often forsaken reminding us that, "My friends to me must be remembered". 

The songwriting on Anywhere is not its only commodity. In "Wouldn't Leave You" the vibrato in Dave's voice creates the illusion that the song is whispered into the listener's ear. His subtle vocal nuances bring even more intimacy to this story of spiritual awakening.

In the anthem "Love the World", Pahanish comes to terms with his fears by observing his father surrender to the reality of his own life: 

"So I'm here to tell you baby,
There's a chance for tomorrow,
There's a reason for today,
But your life, it don't mean nothing,
If you throw it all away,
So don't throw it all away."
