Album Notes
A personal message from Dave:

The Texting and Driving CD is the cumulative result of ten years of song writing and performances and over two years of album production. After the success of my 2009 CD, "I Just Want To Get Paid", there was the temptation to try to speed up my writing process in order to create a second release quickly. But I knew that my songs resonate deeply because they are honest snapshots of some moment in life - and you just have to live life until one of those moments comes along. I never sit down and think, "I need to write a funny song today". Once I have an idea for a song, I take forever to write it - especially the lyrics. When I'm working on a new song, my mind is tinkering with it constantly, sometimes for weeks or even months! Every evening walk; every drive to a gig; every quiet moment is spent running some phrase, searching for the wording that makes it sing. It's time consuming to be sure, but I love the process and I think the final product is well worth it!

In the hands of a great songwriter, there are moments when melody, lyric, harmony and rhythm combine and create a sound that zips right past the conscious brain and triggers pure emotion inside the listener. It’s an effect that no one of these musical elements can achieve alone. The song might make you laugh, or make you think, or even cry, but it hits deep. To me this effect is the magic of music and song – and it’s the moment I strive for in every song I write. Only the listener gets to decide if I have hit the mark, but keeping my eye on this elusive connection between song and emotion is a large part of what guides my songwriting. It reminds me to not rush the process of songwriting, and to just keep searching and tweaking until it truly feels right. What is the point otherwise?

Whether I am poking fun at people who can’t stop texting, or singing to my own child hoping to lull him back to sleep after a nightmare, I hope that the scenes that my songs paint make a delicious impression that the listener can relate to. I believe it is this type of impression that makes one return to listen to the songs over and over!
