Dave Madden: “Can I Borrow Your Love” [PREMIERE]

By: Jack Anderson

Having trained at Berklee in Boston and mastered several instruments, Austin songwriter Dave Madden‘s built up quite the reputation over his career, not only as a songwriter but indeed as a thoughtful arranger and synthesizing music theorist.

Complete with a horn and string section, “Can I Borrow Your Love” is an impressively orchestral undertaking that navigates across several styles with ease, and its visual counterpart goes to show the unifying power of music even when we can’t jam in person.
