Dale was born in Lockport, New York, and spent his tender years on a dairy farm in nearby Springville. His family later moved to Buffalo NY, where Dale became involved with the Salvation Army’s musical programs at the age of 11, continuing until the age of 21. During these years, Dale took full advantage of the musical education the Salvation Army offered, including participation with the brass band. He learned musical theory and guitar, and began writing original compositions, developing his vocal skills while traveling with a Christian rock band.

Dale was most influenced by solo artists, preferring the story lines of folk and country artists. His compositions follow the style of John Denver, Jim Croce and Ann Murray.

For a time, Dale’s musical interests took a back seat to his family life. He took a day job as a union printer, staying close to his three children by volunteering as a boy scout leader and baseball coach. He never stopped composing, however, refining his musical talents by performing at open stages throughout Western New York, and hosting some of his own, including Toast & Jam for the Lewiston Council on the Arts. Dale has performed at the Niagara Wine Festival, Taste of Lewiston, Canal Fest, Lewiston Outdoor Fine Arts Festival, and Taste of Lockport.

Dale was inspired by the audience’s reaction to his first original song, “Sound Like the Rain,” and soon released his debut cd entitled “Just Me and the Dog.”
As a solo artist or as lead singer with Ruby Sunsett, Dale is a local favorite and has performed for numerous private parties, organizations, benefits, and public establishments. Dale has also performed vocals on other artist’s cd’s.
Dale is co-host of the Iney Wallens Radio Show, and has his own show broadcast every Thursday at 4 PM on WJJL 1440 AM.
