Dave Wilkins

Dave Wilkins - Wingham Akoostik Festival
Dave’s last appearance at Akoostik was in 2015, but every year he helps behind the scenes in securing us the best of the best artists in the business. In 2018 we are very pleased to have Dave return to the stage cos he’s been singing and performing since Noah hit the ark into the side of a mountain years ago.

Dave wears many hats, singer, songwriter, producer and manager.

As a songwriter Dave has written with the crème of Australian talent including Diesel, Ian Moss, Kate Ceberano, Shannon Noll, Brook McClymont and currently has a song in the country charts with a Matt Cornell Co-write. Dave has worked with many others but he can not remember who because of early Alzheimer’s.

As a performer he has shared the stage with a “Lennon” played with country music megastar Kris Kristofferson and toured and made a movie with Russell Crowes “30 odd foot of Grunts”

Dave’s own band the Utopian Babies hit the top 40 in their own right with the radio friendly track “One of these days”.

As a producer Dave produced tracks for Russell Crowe & Chrissie Hynde from the Pretenders and many others.
