Dave Parker is a bedroom producer/engineer. Sometimes he also does producing/engineering in real studios and occasionally you'll find him behind the mixing desk at a show you're at (or you could find him behind the mixing desk at a show you're not at but we're stepping in to quantum mechanics territory here). Over the past few years Dave has been busy birthing musical babies all over the show for the likes of; Ruby Frost, Great North, Teacups, Artisan Guns, Watercolours, Glass Owls, Clap Clap Riot and many more
He sometimes also plays guitar in Watercolours and wears a shark cape while playing bass in Bearcat. When not doing music related things he is an avid baker and once a year he disappears in to the surrounding orchards for a week or so to collect apples that he carefully turns in to cider. Currently he is writing this bio in the 3rd person. Dave has, in my opinion, the best taste in music ever and now you have to listen to it while you are trying to buy clothes. Lucky you.

PLAYLIST ONE - Feel Good and Get Stuff Done
Mostly upbeat newish alternative pop, these are the sort of songs I turn to when I want/have to get something done. Hopefully this results in your shopping experiences being super productive and maybe less stressful (if you are feeling stressed) (in an ideal world your shopping experience is already pretty relaxed). One time I was having a terrible day and then the supermarket was playing a Mariah Carey song from her Christmas album and when I heard it I felt better about everything. I think that if I had a shop I'd probably only play Mariah Carey's Christmas album on repeat, but I resisted the temptation to put that on this playlist.
PLAYLIST TWO - Motown/Fun
Most of this playlist has been compiled from mp3's of old/rare 45's that I've been collecting from various blogs for the past few years. Some of these songs might have sold very few records and maybe haven't been played for years until someone unearthed them in a box at a thrift store and uploaded them on to a blog. I really like the idea of these amazing songs, that might otherwise be lost, getting heard and loved again. But not everyone loves old miscellaneous Motown as much as me so I decided to break it up with some classics and newer songs that I felt would be sympathetic to the songs I already had on there.
