Davey Dynamite is a punk singer with a heart of fiery gold. His everyday disposition is mild-mannered and unassuming; when he is playing and singing a ghost overtakes him, making his voice ragged and forcing jerk into his bones.  He stomps and wails, and on the other side you can see something flying.

We interviewed Davey about his new album WAITT — We’re All In This Together, a spiritual stance as much as a political one — and he blessed us with songs. Many many thanks to Kiam Marcielo Junio for filming and Joseph Varisco of JRVMajesty for editing.

You can find more of Davey’s work at his bandcamp page.
