Dave Merkel is a lifelong musician, being more at home at a piano keyboard than most anywhere. His life experiences have taken him around the country: from concert stages and piano bars to worship services, morning radio personality to audio engineering, being a pastor (a UMC pastor) to a regular at the bar; it all encompasses real life: the good, the bad and the ugly. Dave has reclaimed his musical and audio gifts, putting them to use for the church and beyond. Dave and his wife currently reside in Billings, Montana.
