Dave Pahanish

Dave Pahanish has managed to come virtually out of nowhere to become an increasingly in-demand writer for the top stars of country music.

After scoring cuts on Jimmy Wayne’s ” Do You Believe Me Now” album, Dave and his production co-writer Joe West scored the title track to Toby Keith’s American Ride album.

Emily West also cut one of Dave’s songs, which should end up on an album if one ever comes out, and other artists are now clamoring for his songs including Tim McGraw and Keith Urban who recorded “Without You”.

Runaway Home

The band, Runaway Home, is a “homecoming” of sorts. It was founded by three powerhouse singers looking for a road back to the music they grew up on and loved!

Their sound is strong three part harmony over lyrics that matter, wrapped in an acoustic style reminiscent of ‘70’s era radio. You might call them Retro-Commercial-Americana.
