Dave Hiltebrand’s unique style and sound are a direct influence of his love for film music and trees. From an early age Dave loved soaring cinematic music. He has incorporated that love into his guitar playing and composing. Often performing using a looping pedal Dave creates multi layered guitar compositions in real time. His composing style centers around a technique of interweaving guitar parts together to create lush and panoramic pieces.
Dave has connected the dots between the centered and present moment of being among trees and nature and a mindful approach to making music. He thrives in creating music off the cuff with little forethought. In live performances from yoga studios to concert stages, he has developed a technique of “scoring the moment.”
Dave’s twenty plus year career has led him to Havana, Cuba to Carnegie Hall and many places in between, a two year stint on the national tour of Jersey Boys and network tv appearances on the ABC drama Betrayal and the pilot episode of Empireon FOX. He has composed music for Nike, the Oprah Winfrey Show, Allstate, the Big Ten Network, the James Beard Awards and Brightspark Travel. For the last ten years Dave has played bass with the world renowned Chicago Children’s Choir.
