Dave Innis is the keyboardist and an original member of the critically acclaimed vocal group Restless Heart, a band that heralds six Grammy nominations, five CMA nominations, as well as winners of Academy of Country Music’s Vocal Group of the Year Award; the group also has five Gold Records on RCA. In addition to being a well-respected keyboardist, Dave is also an accomplished singer, songwriter, musician and producer. His latest project, The Okies, has Dave joining forces with fellow Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame Member, Paul Gregg, to create an intimate fan experience. The show features deep cuts, fan requests, and hits with new musical treatment, combined with colorful stories from behind the scenes of over thirty years of friendship and recordings.
In addition to playing with Restless Heart and The Okies, Dave has lent his musical talents to many established artists, recording with Vince Gill, Richard Marx, Waylon Jennings, Ricky Skaggs, Conway Twitty, and many others. He has traveled the world to play in such prestigious venues as Radio City Music Hall, LA’s Greek Amphitheater, and various concert halls in Asia, Africa and Mexico. He has also toured extensively to US military bases worldwide, entertaining our troops and their families.
Says Innis, “The most rewarding part of my job is taking all of my career experiences, the good and the bad, and sharing that wisdom with my son who is also in the music business. I am also extremely fortunate to be part of a 35-year legacy where I am constantly blessed by people’s connection to our music…the stories of how our songs have touched a life will never lose their impact. It’s what drives me to continue to create for our fans.”
Dave currently resides in Brentwood, TN with his wife, Adrienne. He has two grown children: Isabella, an accomplished artist, and Isom, a member of the popular group Foster the People. When Dave is not out touring with Restless Heart or The Okies, he enjoys playing piano, working out, volunteering, and entertaining friends.
