ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Most musicians have a few demos sitting somewhere on their archives. Many of them will never see the light of day.

Solo artist David Andrew Wiebe, however, has rarely been shy about sharing his experiments with the world, as evidenced by his second full-length album, Fire Your God.

His last EP release, No Escape, found him at the peak of his performance game, complemented by pristine production.

Nowhere Even Near finds him back at his roots. While it may be a step ahead of Fire Your God in terms of production, the performance are raw and unfinished. Further, Wiebe leaves plenty to the imagination. There's still room for harmonies, color and textures, which he chose not to fill.

This collection kicks off with "Why Should I Believe", a rock song with a classic rock tinge and memorable guitar hooks that will keep you coming back for more.

"Feeling" is reminiscent of the types of pop songs Wiebe was known for in his early days as a solo musician. The plodding, dissonant verse leads into a soaring, melodic chorus you won't soon forget.

"Letting Go" might be the oddball on Nowhere Even Near as it is the only instrumental on this EP and it's a synth-based instrumental to boot. Wiebe says he wanted to experiment with reversing the role of synth and guitar, where the synth dominates the main riffs and themes while the guitar takes more of a supporting role adding texture and color.

"Dagger" is one of Wiebe's heaviest tracks to date, which might come as a surprise to some. His love of hard rock, however, is known to his closes friends, who will enjoy hearing Wiebe's unique take on the genre.

"From the Ashes" is straight up pop in the vein of Hillsong or Lincoln Brewster, and it's similar thematically too. It still shows off a bit of Wiebe's guitar work in the solo section, but aside from that this basically a dance tune.

The collection ends with the acoustic rocker "We Could Only", which is a new take on the opening track, "Six Sides", from Wiebe's first solo album, Shipwrecked... My Sentiments. The harmonies don't always play nice, and the new version is more pop than the original, but experiments don't always pan out. The extended guitar solo at the end, however, is classic Wiebe.
