The “Sand Sessions”, AKA Songwriting Sessions, Are A Series Of Videos Of Live Performances Of Original Songs

Filmed On The Beaches Around Charleston, South Carolina But Occasionally On Other Beaches As Well (Like Puerto Rico, Clearwater, FL Or Miami).

Find All Of Dave’s Sand Sessions On YouTube.

All Performances Are Initial Ideas Of The Song. Some Have Been Later Recorded In The Studio And Are Available At:

Thanks For Listening! I’d Love To Hear Any Feedback At Ddlandeo@Msn.Com On Any One… Or All Of These Tunes.

From Song To Studio


Here Is A Sample Of A Sand Session Song That Ended Up On An Album. The First Video On The Left Was The Initial Idea Of “Palmetto Soul” Videotaped In Puerto Rico…And The Studio Version (Recorded Later That Year For The Album Kool Water) Is On The Right.

Another Tune That Made It To The Studio Is “I Fell Back In My Black Chair”….Which Was One Of The First Song Ideas For The Sand Sessions videos.

More Original Song Videos:

Two Of My Tunes Were Used In This Video Of My First/And Only (Haha) Skydive Experience Over The Hills Of East Tennessee.

And the one on the right is a Piano Piece Celebrating My Parent’s Anniversary.

Fun Time With Hoops! I Created This Video, “Hoop Dee Hoop”, With My Children…While Experimenting With The Slo-Mo Function On My IPhone….Good Times.

Another One, “Shrimp Boat”, With My Kids On The Boardwalk At Shem Creek In Mount Pleasant, SC One Beautiful Day. It Took Us All Of About One Hour To Videotape The Footage.

I Had An Online Contest With Fans To “Name A Title To A New Dave Song” In Which I Would Write A Tune Based Around The Winner’s Title. The Song “Maybe The Dingo Ate My Baby” Is What Came Out! 🙂

“Good Boy” was a song I wrote the day before I performed it live on WCIV’s “Lowcountry Live” in Charleston, SC promoting Pet Fest for the Charleston Parks & Rec Department.  Of course my dog, Chuco, was on the IOP beach with me as I penned the tune.

First Video is “She Loves The D.J. Voice” as performed live at the CD Release Party for the album “Kool Water” at Wild Wing Café in Mount Pleasant, SC.

And the second is the studio version of the song…in it’s entirety.  Hope you enjoy!
