Originally from the Maritimes, Daven Atma now makes his home in British Columbia, Canada. Daven developed as an artist on the indie music circuit in the Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver area. Heavily influenced by the sound of early Bob Dylan music and the American Folk Music revival period of the 1960’s, the inspiration can be heard in Daven’s lyrical style and his unique vocal inflection. His original music includes both catchy, up-tempo tunes with crafty, sometimes witty lyrics at their core as well as deeper, more reflective material.
Daven achieved local notoriety through the release of his debut CD Ahead To Square One in 2013. This is a compilation of mostly original songs along with two tributes to Bob Dylan in ‘Jokerman’ and ‘The Times They Are A-Changin’. Now with the release of his latest CD To Step Two, Daven is gaining national and international recognition.
To Step Two is the evolutionary next step for Daven Atma. This CD includes material that forays into new sounds and styles while remaining true to his roots. To Step Two is again a compilation of mostly original songs along with two tributes to Bob Dylan in ‘You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go’ and ‘Mr. Tambourine Man’. Also featured are the talents of Jennie Bice, Victor Cronley, Peter Kilgour and Quinn Patterson on a variety of instruments.
Daven Atma is a firm believer in preserving the integrity of the vocal performance during the recording process. No vocal tuning software is used in the production of Daven’s music.
