The sailor and the dancer, the young girl stranded along Route 66 at dusk, the refugees who turn into ravens...Sweet Wednesday's songs spin tales that allow the listener to peek into the human soul in its most intimate and magical moments.
From the moment singer/songwriters Dave Falk and Lisa Housman met, they knew there was a songwriting, performing chemistry at work. Since forming Sweet Wednesday in 2006, the duo has released four albums to critical acclaim, toured extensively as an acoustic duo and with their full band, and been featured on radio and television programs throughout the U.S. and abroad.
In addition to inspiring fans near and far, Sweet Wednesday has been the recipient of several songwriting awards, including First Place in the Great American Song Contest, First Place in the Dallas Songwriting Competition, and Runner-Up in the John Lennon Song Contest.
An accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Dave brings his unique style to the guitar, mandolin, harmonica, banjo, and fiddle, while Lisa sings of long-distance friendships, having a hard day working as a clerk in a bakery in New York City, lost love, and those crazy mermaids you might encounter after being out on the ocean for several days.
Sweet Wednesday’s songs tell wonderful stories, with beauty, humor, and passion. Rock, folk, and americana lovers instantly fall in love with the tunes of these nationally touring troubadours, whose engaging personalities make each listener feel part of a community.
Originally from Boston, Dave Falk and Lisa Housman have toured the country for the past ten years, both as an acoustic duo and with their band.
Lisa Housman sings and plays guitar, and multi-instrumentalist Dave Falk sings and lends his own unique and dazzling style to the guitar, mandolin, harmonica, banjo, and violin.
Awards and honors include First Place in the Great American Song Contest, First Place in the Dallas Songwriting Competition, Runner Up in the John Lennon Song Contest, and many more.
Falk and Housman are joined in full band formation by ace bass player Jose Downes, and amazing drummer Pepe Hidalgo.
“Think about the last time you received an unexpected and totally delightful gift. That’s just how I felt when I heard the music of Sweet Wednesday. You’ll forgive the gushing when you hear the alt-country, folk, roots sound of the Boston-based duo known individually as Dave Falk and Lisa Housman. I didn’t think musicians made music this
