“Hey there! My name is Dave Depper. I’m a multi-instrumentalist in Portland, Oregon.”


I play guitar for Death Cab for Cutie. We’ll be touring the world in 2015 in support of DCFC’s new record, Kintsugi. Before that, I played guitar and keyboards for Grammy-award winning singer/songwriter and swell fellow Ray LaMontagne.  I’ve toured, played live, or recorded with lots of other folks including The Fruit Bats, Corin Tucker Band, Menomena, Robyn Hitchcock, Anya Marina, Loch Lomond, Laura Gibson, The Village Green, Mirah, Jolie Holland, Norfolk & Western and many more.

When I’m not doing that, I compose and record original, licensable music. Examples of this can be found below:
