The moniker NOT A BOYS NAME is a reminder for Dave to create without concerning himself with the consequences, and acts as a way to avoid being pigeonholed, creatively or otherwise. Born in a sleepy coastal town outside of Sydney, Dave has spent his entire life involved with music in one way or another. His dad was a drummer, and he grew up around a tight-knit circle of friends who were obsessed with music of all genres. Dave spent much of his teen years tinkering away with recording equipment and wrote many psychedelic pop songs in his bedroom. This is where his love of DIY recording first took shape.
Bringing his vision to the stage has been a welcome challenge for Jenkins Jr. He has spent many hours honing his skills as a frontman and band leader, this is evident in the NOT A BOYS NAME live show. Think David Byrne meets Olivia Newton John on a rainy night in a neon lit Chinese cafe.
