Dave Monks presents BBC Introducing from the ‘home of popular music’ – the city of Liverpool.
As well as the occasional appearance on BBC 6Music, Dave is very active within the Merseyside and North-West music scene, hosting live music stages and events at Liverpool International Music Festival, Sound City and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon.
Dave says, “I am lucky to live and work in an area which is fertile for producing good emerging music. There is always something exciting coming through which makes my programme a pleasure to work on. I’m never short of new material to play, that’s for sure.”
Dave has a knack of discovering some the best new emerging artists and giving them their first exposure within the region. Music from the likes of Circa Waves, She Drew The Gun, Queen Zee, Zuzu, Jalen N’Gonda, XamVolo, Clean Cut Kid, Louis Berry, Paris Youth Foundation and The Vryll Society are just a few of the recent artists that have had early support from BBC Music Introducing on Merseyside.
