Dave Whitcher is a middle school math teacher in Tigard, Oregon. Since 2009, he has been moonlighting as MegaMath, a band for which he shoulders all songwriting, performance, recording and production duties. MegaMath has released 4 EPs in the past several years, with songs focusing mostly on math concepts for teens, but also branching into songs about grammar, punctuation, science, and even Spanish language. In 2013, Whitcher went on hiatus from MegaMath, citing creative differences, and started writing plain old songs about plain old stuff, like digging holes, reckless driving, petty vandalism, love, thinking positively, the importance of smiling, etc. On his solo work, he once again does all songwriting, musical performance, vocals, and production. Sometimes the generator runs out of fuel, which causes technical problems that negatively impact the recording, but Whitcher’s dogged work ethic salvages most of it into a palatable, albeit low budget, duct-taped form. Heavily influenced by the onslaught of incredible rock albums released in 1981 (Mob Rules, Screaming For Vengeance, Diary of a Madman, High ‘n’ Dry, Blackout, MSG and so many more greats) while chopping wood in the frigid tundra of Yakima, Washington, Whitcher has also evolved to be musically touched by the likes of Vai, Zeppelin, Rage, Squeeze, Kate Bush, Poe, Hum, Scofield, and Buckethead, all of which influence his songwriting. Please take a moment to enjoy the fruits of his labor, forever to be known as the Best Songs You’ll Never Hear.
