Dave Williams is one of Australias most accomplished musicians and in-demand drummers. As a founding member of Melbourne five-piece, Augie March, Williams has established himself as a critically acclaimed musician, as well as a nationally renowned drummer, singer and instrumentalist for hire.
Forming in 1996, Augie March emerged from Melbournes bookish art-rock scene to become one of Australias most beloved acts. With a reputation for skilled arrangements, unique musicianship, erudite lyrics and stirring performances, the band have released six albums and toured extensively around Australia and the world, sharing stages with the likes of Leonard Cohen, John Cale, Wilco, Crowded House, Yo La Tengo, Gomez and more.
Williams has also established himself away from Augie March as a go-to musician for hire. Hes recorded and performed with a raft of iconic Australian acts, including Laura Jean, Luluc, Josh Pyke, Dan Kelly, Jen Cloher, Liz Stringer, Bob Evans, Paul Dempsey and Australian rock royalty Deborah Conway and Paul Kelly. Hes also backed Damo Suzuki, vocalist from seminal krautrock band Can, and was hand-picked by Japanese noise rock legends, Boredoms, as one of the 11 drummers in their 111 Boa-Drum performance.
