Let me make the songs of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.”

— Andrew Fletcher

Bio

Known for his signature guitar that says, “This Machine Destroys Hate,” Dave Soleil is a folk singer/songwriter writing music to change our world. From inspirational songs to the cold hard truth, his music gets compared to musicians from Ani DiFranco to Woody Guthrie. He has performed at numerous venues from the "Power To The Polls" Women's March Anniversary in Atlanta to street corner protests to political house parties. 

“Love Songs to America” is Dave’s debut album featuring original favorites like the inspirational “Stand On The Mountain,” his tear-jerking "Blessed Refugees" for the migrant children separated from their families at the border, and the hilarious “What’s the Warmest City in Canada?” Poignant, strong and unapologetic, Dave Soleil brings resistance music to life for a new generation.
