cuts through to the places where a soul is reminded
that it's alive. Every word is clear; every verse
meaningful. His voice, like a cello, conveys poignancy
-Tom Latimer, Grand Forks
"...These are songs that speak of the back
alley poet, sung from the heart..."
-Anne DeGrace, ARTiculate
"This man packs raw emotion into each phrase
and even the ragged drawn breaths between words.
Soroka's songs often wrestle with darkness and
despair, and like a man fighting uphill with his
back to the abyss, are doubly noble for refusing
to take that last backward step."
-Michael Devlin, the
Music Matters Review
"Soroka believes in self-expression and personal
connections, and he feeds that belief into every
note he plays."
Murray, The Nashville Scene
'n' roll poet, modern muse, beat poet of the 21st
century...Canadian songwriter Dave Soroka has
been honing his craft since 1969. An outstanding
wordsmith, his poetry and music are very personal
and intimate but also touch on the bigger picture
of the world we're living in, always through a
lens of wry humor and unassuming honesty. His
songs and sound are reminiscent of the great troubadors
of our time - Zevon, Young, Prine, Dylan, Springsteen
- but his words and delivery are all his own and

"It sure was a treat having you both those
nights. And I'm glad you enjoyed
yourself. Please lets keep in touch."
-Holly Steele, Beyond
The Edge, Nashville Tennessee
"Having someone like Dave do a home concert
was a treat, not only for me, a long time admirer,
but for those who had only heard me mention how
unique his sound and approach is. There were reports
of them listening to his music for days afterwards....echoing
my practice of doing the same many many times."
-Eddie Gream, house concert
host, Mayfield Kentucky
the fans say:
has a way of getting the hearer's imagination
to working right in there..."
-Eddie Gream, Mayfield
so enjoyed you and are still enjoying your music
so much. It is playing now as we speak, which
prompted me to get on here and send you a message.
You touched us, as you say we touched you..."
-Paula Buck, Mayfield

So. Cal., got my little heart a pumpin' hard,
realizing that I'll finally be able to hear your
music in person..."

I've got 13 of your CD's..."
-Doug Pierce, Norridgewock
see, I took way too many psychedelic drugs in
my wayward youth, and tend to hallucinate. Dave's
music acts as a catalyst to this tendency and
I start howling at the moon, (especially if said
moon is in Scorpio), thus disturbing everyone's
peace and quiet when they're trying to get a good

in the USA
an extremely talented musician and song-writer,
but peculiar to deal with off stage! Does major
creativity always go hand in hand with minor insanity?"

now you have got a fan..."
-Celina Martinsen, Norway
thing I like about Dave is that he is genuine.
He's not like some entertainer guy who's putting
on a facade, he's just being himself and that's
-Sherri Barcroft, Curlew,
-Darlyne Pasin, Trail,
have always been lured toward folk music and find
yours to be the type I love to listen to. Time
to call Bob Dylan and tell him to move over."
