Lucky Dog – Don’t Screw It Up, Again (Bones)

Lucky Dog brings to us the visuals for ‘Don’t Screw It Up, Again’ taken from Bones

Lucky Dog is the brainchild of Dave Schipper, a songwriter and  artist with a passion for creating beautiful country melodies with a unique twist. He is a gifted multi-instrumentalist, with a focus on banjo, harmonica and guitar. His earnest vocal style is at the core of his songs, and what makes his music really stand out is the heartfelt honesty he puts into it.

Recently, Lucky Dog released a new project titled “Bones,” which features 8 original tracks, as well as two cover songs (unreleased pieces by Natalie Gelman and Emily Earle). The sound of this release has a nice Americana vibe, with a warm and organic approach to production! The songs explore different creative directions, but they are bound together by the artist’s distinctive songwriting style, and passion for intimate, yet inspiring melodies. We brings to you today the brand new visuals for ‘Don’t Screw It Up, Again’ which is one of the songs featured on this new project.

This is a great record for fans of country-inspired music, but with a broader feel transcending various influences and genre definitions.

His sound tips the hat off to influential storytellers such as Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, giving his music a charming old-school touch.





Dave Schipper is the soul of Lucky Dog. The leader of the pack. He is a gifted songwriter, experienced lead vocal, and talented musical adding guitar, banjo, and harmonica. He is a veteran of 10 years with a cover band Rose River. He also has been the chair of the 43rd annual Great River Folk Fest in La Crosse for the last five years; and has run the Bluff View House Concerts series from his house for the last 10 years. He’s hosted touring artists such as Lindsay Lou & Flatbellys, The Pines, Emily Earle, Danny Schmidt, & Andy Hughes.

Bones was released in 2017 and it features a local fiddler Jessie McDonald from Pigtown Fling Stringband on four of the songs including a great folk bluegrass song called “Family Tree” as well as several spoken pieces.

The video premiering March 29th for “Don’t screw it up, Again” was filmed with a perfect cast. The woman was 34, a star with a dimple in her chin, and with her new beau who is also on their 2nd go around. In Dave’s favorite microbrewery known for the Pale Ale that is written into the song.
