Industry

It has been my pleasure to work with Dave Kinnoin on numerous occasions over the last 15 years. He has always delivered clever and original songs that give me a solid interpretation of the subject treatment requested. Well sung, well arranged, and his work made me look good for bringing him into the projects. I look forward to having more projects together in the near future.

Dave Kinnoin is the most versatile, talented and dedicated co-writer with whom I’ve ever worked. He co-wrote about 25 songs with me on my last five albums. His songwriting skills are exceptional. He always comes to our sessions prepared with his absolute refusal to quit until the song is perfect.

Some of the most beloved characters in entertainment have sung Dave Kinnoin songs: Mickey Mouse, Kermit the Frog, Winnie the Pooh, Bear in the Big Blue House, Big Bird, Yertyl the Turtle, Ariel, Jasmine, Belle, Sebastian the Crab, Larry the Cucumber, as well as dozens of other puppets, animated characters – and even some humans kids love.

Dave brings a sparkle to every project by varying the grooves, using stellar players, and being true to the spirit of the song. Dave attributes his success to an adamant refusal to settle for anything less than his absolute best in lyrics, melody, arrangement, performance, and every other aspect of the task at hand.

Dave takes direction well and always delivers the final music product on time.
