In Sports, we’ve all heard of the “5-tool player.” This is where an athlete has various skills on the field. In the arts, at least here in Chicago, we call something with multi-talent “A Dave Singer.” Dave Singer is an accomplished musician, one who has put out his own albums and toured the world. He’s a composer. He wrote the soundtrack for Steppenwolf’s August Osage County. Singer is also an actor. A child actor, like his brother, who showed up on a Life Cereal box. He’s a writer. Short stories and screenplays. And of course, a director. He directed the short film “Advantage: Weinberg” and just wrapped on his feature length comedy called “imperfections.” It shot here in Chicago. Dave Singer joins Justin in-studio to talk about his multi-faceted career.
