'C'mon' Kid' is lifted from Dave's debut solo album Resolutions released on Xtra Mile Recordings. Recorded, produced, engineered and mixed by Pete Steinkopf (of The Bouncing Souls), Resolutions showcases Hause's songwriting talents and his many influences ranging from Patty Griffin to Paul Westerberg resulting in a well-crafted rock album that defies classification. - Big Cheese said: "his unique gruff vocal tones shine through working their magic on the listener's heart." Whilst Rocksound declared it to be "an honest, open and fulfilling addition to the music shelf."
2012 was a busy year for Dave Hause. He started by supporting Alkaline Trio on their extensive UK tour in May and then joined Social Distortion in mid-August for a few shows before meeting up with The Bouncing Souls to finish off the summer with a trek through Europe. Finally, Dave returned again in October and November to support The Gaslight Anthem on shows throughout the UK, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands. He also released a successful and sought after 7" series that showcased alternate recordings of all the tracks from the Resolutions album via five different US indie labels including; Bridge Nine Records, Chunksaah, Jade Tree, Sabot Productions and SideOneDummy.
Since his first solo performance in 2009 Dave has shared the stage with a wide variety of artists including Bob Mould, AFI, Frank Turner, Tim Barry (Avail), Jim Ward (At The Drive-In, Sparta), Tommy Stinson (The Replacements, Guns & Roses), Franz Nicolay, Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music) and Brian Fallon (Gaslight Anthem).
He's certainly not wasting his newfound talents.
