About Dale Effren:
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Dale developed an interest in music at the early age of 10. He started by learning to play the piano and guitar and composed his first song at age 11. Buoyed by the unending support and encouragement from his parents, Dale took on classical guitar lessons and extensive voice training to prepare him to breakaway from the crowded field of songwriters eagerly trying to distinguish themselves. After receiving a diploma in contemporary music with a concentration on guitar, Dale decided his music would focus on love songs, ballads and soft rock for an ever-increasing adult contemporary music market.
In 2001, Dale settled in Los Angeles where he has continued to perform around town as a sideman for various local bands in some of L.A.'s premier clubs like the Rainbow Room and the Martini Lounge. With his appreciation for “80's Glam Rock” and the need to write music with broad-based appeal, he has created a distinct style by combining retro feelings with power ballad force that makes his music stand apart from much of the “same old thing”. When you throw in a little bit of country you've got the essence of what Dale Effren is—a songwriter on a mission.
His past, current and new associations and collaborators include include Grammy/Golden Globe Award Winner/Nominee Charlie Midnight, Multi-Platinum Producer/Songwriter Michael Lloyd, Dove Award Winner Art Reynolds, and Grammy Award Winner/Emmy Nominated Songwriter/Composer Michael Silversher to name a few.
