(Translated from Dutch) “Always Coming Home” David Newbould sang on his second album Tenessee, an excellent piece of work which three years ago was well received in this section. While he had been living for a while in Toronto, Canada coming singer songwriter has been following the path of his musical ambitions, he verzeilde with his guitar case as sole companion already in New York, Austin and Nashville.
For his latest work, he stays in Tennessee, in the Sound Shelter Studios in Franklin, he surrounded himself with The Stowaways and it shows immediately the opener firmly rocking kicks off with the title track of this epeetje (EP). “The Devil Is His Name” is a personal vision of the eternal battle between good and evil. As a young father, he lives a happy life with his wife and baby but the danger is always lurking.
Newbould translate that feeling into heavy music, rousing fiddle and guitar – Peter Hyrka and Andrew Sovine form a diabolical duo uh … who doubts between country and rock. Driven by piercing guitar Standing At the Crossroads Too Long is genuine southern rock that thrives in marshy swamplands.
Newbould remains at its best in ballad work in which an acoustic guitar sets the tone as in “Love You Like I Don’t Know How” supported discreetly by organ and piano Jefferson Crow. “Clam Bake City” somewhat gloomy story closes a short but fascinating fifteen off. Pending a new LP soon you can visit the website for new song work that David Newbould will release sporadically.
