Davey Beige Bio

Davey BeigeDavey Beige plays folk rock with a healthy slice of kiwiana and at one time over a dozen beige suits filled his wardrobe. A majority of this historic menswear collection featured fawn safari suits and these were the genesis for his stage name. This was back in the day when he and his band “The Peter Stuyvesant Hitlist” were performing at many a corporate Christmas party in Auckland and beyond. Currently Davey’s name still remains however the safari suits have been upgraded for rock’n’roll threads and brown suede boots.


Davey Beige’s music has always embodied a fun and earthy element and he writes songs that reflect his Kiwi life. Growing up in the 1970’s on a farm in Rotorua he started playing guitar at an early age and was immediately inspired by the parties and sing-a-longs of the day. From these formative years Davey developed a life long passion for songwriting and he has consistently (either as solo artist or in various bands) been releasing original music ever since.


Davey’s new album “Beginner’s Mind” is set for release this October and the songs on it are influenced by his life in the Bay of Plenty and also a recent discovery of mindfulness. The songs on “Beginner’s Mind” as well as the musical performances are a reflection of Davey’s commitment to living well and living in the moment. Supporting him on the album is “The Blackdoor Band” which includes an extremely talented number of Auckland musican friends that Davey specifically invited to collaborate. The first single to be released from the album is “Sweet Spot” and it’s country-ish swing supports a hardcase lyric which ponders the transitory nature of contentment in life.


With over thirty years of professional experience as a guitarist, songwriter, singer, teacher, columnist and performer Davey has worked with many notable New Zealand artists including John Rowles, Bunny Walters, Fiona McDonald, Peter Urlich, The Topp Twins, Dave McArtney, Jackie Clarke, Harry Lyon, Don McGlashan, The Grand Central Band and Riqi Harawira. Previous Davey Beige releases are “Fold In Two” - Full length album, 2007 and “Hard Work” - Four track EP, 2014.
