Dave White, a Camden County native, began pursuing his passion for music when he was eleven years old. Originally a saxophonist in the middle school jazz band, he switched to bass once discovering KISS and the world of heavy metal. It wasn’t until his freshman year of high school that he would ultimately pick up a guitar, simultaneously studying both electric and classical styles.
Dave would later obtain degrees in music from Camden County College in Blackwood, NJ and a Bachelor’s of Music in Classical Guitar from Rowan University, graduating summa cum laude.
Before joining Legacy, Dave performed first chair in the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Ensemble, and on weekends, performed at Ivan Kane’s Royal Jelly in Atlantic City, a nightclub featuring a vibrant rock n’ roll set played alongside the northeast’s top burlesque dancers.
When not performing, Dave is a guitar instructor at Old Towne Music in South Jersey, and remains active in the Tri-State hardcore and heavy metal scenes.
