Everyday People Band @ Rick's Tavern
Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, David Broadus a.k.a "Dave B. Soul" started singing at the tender age of three. Dave's mother recalls the first song he ever sung was "Greatest Love of All" by Whitney Houston. Besides singing in church, Dave looked up to his older brothers who played instruments in church. This struck his interest in learning music and learning about the production of it.
By the age of 15, he decided he wanted to be an entertainer. Dave had already written a small Christmas musical, performed a song in the musical, and was continuously writing songs on the side.
By the time Dave B. graduated high school, he was part of a small production company called Future World Productions and was cast as Tonton Jullian in the Caribbean opera,"Once on this Island". Dave also joined the Gospel rap groups Frontline Souljahs and Last Day Disciples. By this time, he was into music production and was producing for the Last Day Disciples and the music department of Harmony School. Also during this time, Dave B. was in school for audio engineering and received a certificate for production from Maxx Traxx Recording and Publishing. He would also go on to receive an Associates of Applied Science in Business Management from Brown Mackie College.
During the early 2000's Dave B. was producing for K-Drama, and the independent Christian Hip-Hop Label T.H.I.S Click Records. His production credits also include: B.I.G.S.T.E.V.E., The D&D Mixtapes and guest appearances on K-Drama's second album "Non-Fiction: Beneath the Surface".
In 2006 Dave B. Soul starred in "One Day You Will", a gospel musical, featuring Aretha Chapman. He was triple cast as Bob-Starla's agent, Starla's father in the flashback scene, and the conscience of the present, representative of the many talents of Dave B. Soul.
In 2007, Dave B. Soul was signed by Ovations Entertainment to a management deal. While with Ovations, Dave B. was featured on a national gospel hip hop tv show called Real Life and was opening acts for several local and national artists. Since signing with Ovations, Dave B. Soul has written songs for C-Jay of R.S.M.G. (Russell Simmons Music Group), K.O of The Deele and Belinda Lipscomb of Midnight Star & the Wu Tang Clan to name a few.
In December of 2008, Dave recorded his debut EP "Neon," in which he produced majority of the album himself. His album features guest appearances from Haywire, G-Tee Shotta and Dungeon Masta of the Wu-Tang Clan.
In 2011, he produced and recorded his second EP "The Dave B Soul EP", which comprised of 8 tracks from slow to up- tempo grooves that are sure to keep the party rockin.
After taking almost a 2 yr hiatus from music, he found himself drawing inspiration from past relationships on his current FULL LENGTH album, "One Man Show", released on February 11, 2014. Aptly titled, this album showcases Dave's ability to write, produce, arrange, engineer, mix, master and present this album to you.
If there is anything he can say about music, it would be this..."There are so many ways to express yourself, music is the best way. Whether it be through song, production or dance, you can be yourself through music!"
