Fenley has been around and then some. Not only is he a star on the small screen (both appearing on the 8th Season of America’s Got Talent and the 15th Season of the Voice), but he is also a seasoned veteran performer.

Although the country crooner didn’t get very far in his time on Team Blake, his success outside of reality television continues to skyrocket.

Dave Fenley’s Origin Story

Much like most artists, Fenley is deeply rooted in religion and in music. At a young age, he showed much potential for learning melodies and lyrics, singing with the children’s choir in his Southern Baptist church while his father sang bass in what was called the ‘big choir.’

His musical influences are vast, and once his family moved to Canada, he got exposed to the music of Otis Redding, Ray Charles, and Boyz II Men.

At the age of 15, he began writing his own songs and at 18, he taught himself how to play the songs he loved. Fenley would often play and perform at bars long before he was even legally able to drink alcohol.

He spent the next few decades learning and expanding his craft. Figuring out what type of artist you are is always hard for a budding one, but once he found his love for almost every kind of music, he was sold. Fenley developed a sort-of “genre-free philosophy” for his shows which everybody can connect to.

Fenley has also shared the stage with country music royalties like Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, and Dwight Yoakam. He continues to perform and write and is currently based in Music City.
