About


About Dave's Music Database:

Dave’s Music Database, or The DMDb for short, is devoted to the collection, consolidation, and promotion of music-related best-of lists. It is the place for anyone who loves rating, ranking, reviewing, ranting, and reading about favorite albums, songs, acts, and other things music-related.

About Dave Whitaker:

I launched the DMDB originally as a website to feed my music obsession. It branched out into a Facebook page, this blog, and writing. On the latter, I have appeared on television (see it here), radio (hear it here), and at book stores, bars, and libraries. I am a National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) winner, a former PopMatters music columnist (Aural Fixation), and author of several music-related books.

Web:

DavesMusicDatabase.com features an online encyclopedia of hundreds of music makers, an extensive database of music makers’ birthdays, and over 1500 album reviews.

Blog:

You are here! Much of the content which originated on the website has been revised and moved to the blog. As of the end of 2017, the blog had over 1 million hits. The DMDB Blog offers musically-related best-of lists, an index of “on this date” snapshots in musical history, and music-related essays.

Facebook:

With fans in 40 countries, the DMDB Facebook page offers a chance to interact with music fans internationally. Regular posts relate to best-of lists, music makers’ birthdays, and music history.


Writing:

Dave wrote the music column “Aural Fixation” for PopMatters from 2011-13 and has published several books under the DMDB banner.
