Two talented Daves touring nationally in October/November

Talented singer-songwriters David Shanhun and David Haslett will be touring nationally in late October-early November.

David Shanhun will be promoting his new album “Life is Better with You” which features features the track ‘I Believe In You’ that reached #2 on the New Zealand iTunes country charts.

Earlier this year David opened for Foreigner, Heart, and Three Dog Night, on their summer tour of New Zealand. He also recently opened for Australian X-Factor runner-up Dean Ray on his New Zealand tour. Shanhun has been nominated twice for the NZCMA Horizon Award, and was a nominee for the Pat McMinn Rising Star Award.
