Dave Graney (born in Mount Gambier, South Australia) is an Australian rock musician and singer/songwriter.

Graney is generally accompanied by his wife and longstanding creative partner, drummer Clare Moore. The pair have fronted such bands as The Moodists (1980-87), The White Buffaloes (1989-90), Dave Graney 'n' the Coral Snakes (1987-97), The Dave Graney Show (1998-03) and Dave Graney and Clare Moore…featuring the Lurid Yellow Mist (2004-).

The 1993 Dave Graney 'N' the Coral Snakes’s album, Night of the Wolverine, is considered by many to be an Australian classic. No singles were released from the album but it contained many memorable songs including the title track, "You're Just Too Hip, Baby" and "Three Dead Passengers in a Stolen Second Hand Ford", co-written with Stephen Cummings. This level of quality was equalled on the next album, You Wanna Be There But You Don't Wanna Travel (1994), with "I'm Gonna Release Your Soul", "You Wanna Be Loved" and "The Stars Baby, The Stars".

1995 saw the release of "The Soft and Sexy Sound of Dave Graney 'n' the Coral Snakes". With tracks like "Rock 'n' Roll Is Where I Hide" and "I'm Not Afraid To Be Heavy", this Album earned Dave an ARIA Award for Best Male Vocalist. The next album The Devil Drives (1997), with its Top 20 hit "Feelin' Kinda Sporty", was Graney and Moore's last with the Coral Snakes and also Universal Music.
