Writing stories and songs has become one of the things I need to do. Even though I've been writing music for over almost two decades, I feel like I'm just scratching the surface of the tales I need I to write.  

My heart is tied to those I love and the beauty of the world that moves outside my home in the Midwest. These themes echo throughout the songs I sing and stories I write.  

Why "David Nash Collective?" A collective is a group of people who work together. None of what I do, the writing, recording, publishing, performing, etc would we possible without the help from my family and friends. Whether it is co-writing lyrics, editing a friend's manuscript, or taking Sara (my wife's advice), I'm always relying on the help of others to make this art possible. It deserves a big thank you, and that is why this site is referred to as the "David Nash Collective."
