From that moment onward, Dave endeavored to make music a way of life. At the age of 9, Dave had the wonderful opportunity to see Doobie Brothers in concert and was truly touched by the melodic experience. Soon afterward, Dave’s older brother Mike once again played a significant part in his career path by purchasing a guitar for him when his just 9 years old. Throughout the years, Dave immersed himself in music culture and sampled music from every genre. While in high school, Dave, who incidentally is the C.E.O.
of an independent record label Groove United, played in a big band and participated in various high school competitions. This Canadian label has grown through the years and now features Dutch Robinson (R&B legend from the Ohio Players), Delilah (Gypsy Pop Diva) and several newly discovered talents ranging from rock to soul. Dave went on to studied composition and arranging at the acclaimed Berklee College of Music. Following his studies, Dave collaborated with some of the most revered jazz musicians of our time, including an assortment of musicians in the New York area. He performed as a member of Phoenix and shared the bill with Stuff (Aretha Franklin’s band).
He has appeared at the Toronto Jazz Festival, the Tel Aviv Jazz festival, the Glen Gould Studio, and had the unforgettably opportunity to play with jazz and rock greats such as Kenwood Denar, Richie Cole, Jose Feliciano, Alex Lifeson of Rush, Rex Smith and Mark Whitfield. Currently, Sereny is gearing up to take his music on the road. With the release of Take this Ride and the award nominations, Sereny is set to take the musical world by storm.
