Album Notes
"The more you listen, the greater the rewards. The collection doesn't fit into a specific genre, and that's to its credit. Tutin's a true original. Beautifully produced."

This review of Raised In Vain - the first album from Dave Tutin - sums up the pleasure and the the problem of his music. It is almost impossible to squeeze his songwriting into an established genre. Bluesy one moment, folky the next. One moment joining with the best of what used to be called folk-rock the next drawing you deeper with an emotionally charged piano-led ballad.

"Sure, I hear hints of Dylan, Petty and Harrison, but only as inspirations, not as sources" said another reviewer. Dave makes no attempts to hide the fact that he is no youngster. At 61 he feels age has only made him better at what he does...
"I wanted to write these songs when I was 19...but I hadn't lived them yet" he says.

ReviewPosse.com probably put it the most succinctly..."Brilliant lyrical content and songwriting skills."

From his first album through the more stripped down acoustic songs of Beneath A Flagless Moon, to the latest from this prolific songwriter, JanuaryRising, there's not one song where he fails to "make the personal sound universal" as LeicesterBangs.com put it.

"If you like great songs played and sung with real musicianship and taste"...check out Dave Tutin.

We have now played this album 7 times in 3 days, some of the songs I can only describe as haunting! Beautifully recorded & produced. As a recording engineer I get thoroughly pissed off listening to over - produced & poorly engineered tracks! This is a joy to listen to, so much so that I stop analysing & just enjoy the music!

Music for people who've lived a little.
I used to work for Dave back when he was still in advertising, before he walked away from a business that became a shadow of its former self, as large, faceless holding companies bought up the great names and genericized them into puddles of mediocrity. Anyway... per the title of this review Dave has lived a little, more than a little really, and his experiences fuel his lyrics and music. There is a search for truth here, always elusive but what pursuit could be more worthwhile? Listen to these songs: you will reflect on your life, maybe revisit your future, and through it all be draped in a tapestry of very fine sounds. This is the good stuff.

Dave Tutin and I were in various groups together from the late 1960's into the 1970's in the UK. I still live there, Dave has moved on and now lives in Sante Fe, USA, luckily we are still in contact.
Although we have different musical tastes and follow different paths, we do respect what each other is doing – Dave is doing far more than me!
JanuaryRising is a real accomplishment of his talents as a singer / songwriter.
The songs, the music, and arrangements are really worthy of your time to have a listen, he always uses excellent backing musicians and this is no exception (he is also a very accomplished musician). I think he has excelled himself this time with this collection. For me this is my favourite CD of his to date.
You can listen to the songs via his web site or hear excerpts on CD Baby.
You may not like them all (I do not sometimes like all the music on various artists CD's I buy - even my own efforts at times – that is the way it goes), however, there is a lot of interesting songs here, and if you like most of them I would encourage you to buy the CD, as opposed to downloading certain tracks because you get: an excellent professional quality fold out CD package, including a booklet with the song lyrics and a brief description about the songs, plus information on the musicians collaborating, and a bonus booklet of some of Dave's poetry. A real bargain!
Dave has also previously produced two professional quality double CD's, namely “Raised in Vain” and “Beneath a Flagless Moon”. So if you are interested to discover more about Dave's music please check them out.
Dave's CD's are all professionally mixed and mastered to a very high quality.

January Rising Soars
Dave Tutin does it again. Like all his work, you're not sure whether you come for the music and stay for the words, or vice versa. But stay you will. And these penetrating songs will stay with you too. Like most good artists worthy of the name, he returns again and again to the same themes, but he digs deeper each time and is able to expresses what he uncovers in new, engaging and quite beautiful ways. January Rising is true to its title. It rises higher with each listening, and takes you with it. Get it, and see (and listen) for yourself.
