Original songs by David Gans

Some of you may not be aware that I write a lot of my own material! The first thing I ever played on the guitar was a song my brother helped me write. He showed me the chords and I was off and running! That was more than 50 years ago. Some of these songs go back to my collaboration with a high-school classmate, Stephen Donnelly.

I’ve had a few other collaborations along the way, as noted below. I am of course most proud of having written two songs with Robert Hunter: “Like a Dog” and “Shut Up and Listen.”
