Album Notes
"My high school counselor considered me an idler, essentially unemployable and too irresponsible to hold down a real job. His admonition, coupled with my natural predisposition, suggested the ideal vocation—a life in the arts.

"Early on, I supported myself (nominally) by playing in fly-by-night blues bands. But the sturm und drang of small quarters and large egos, fetid beer-soaked carpets and unsavory managers eventually persuaded me that the visual arts might be a better direction.

"For many, many years in my unexpectedly viable life as a full-time painter and illustrator, my guitar sat idle in the closet. Then, a few years ago, for a variety of reasons, I fell hard for music-making all over again.

"Through the use of technology, I'm able to work by myself, putting emphasis on composing rather than performing. This is addictive and serves as a creative jumpstart whenever painting becomes uninspired.

"The core of the music remains instrumental, guitar-driven, blues-based rock and roll, but now somewhat expanded. Woven in are more complicated structural passages, dissonant underpinnings, sonic landscapes and nods to Broadway musicals.

"More and more I consider the music a soundtrack for my paintings or the paintings as an illustrated companion to the music." —David Delamare


Thanks to Chris Vita of Vita Mastering for his patient and tempered consideration, to Peter Vaughan Shaver for sound advice, to my friends Mitch McGinnis for his invaluable and educated insights, to David Dinucci for multiple rescues, and to Joe Reed for technical assistance. Ongoing thanks are due to my wife, agent and producer Wendy Ice for taking on the boring bits, allowing me to work on the fun bits unfettered.

About The Artist:

David Delamare was born in the UK, but has lived most of his life in Portland, Oregon. He shares his home with his wife, two rabbits that have the run of his studio, a cat, and a 150-lb tortoise.

He's never been an employee or driven a car. He seldom wakes before noon and often works until dawn.

His paintings have been purchased by museums. They've also appeared on book and album covers (including this one), in television programs and in films.

Delamare has illustrated ten published books: a retrospective, eight children's titles (including two of his original stories and a collaboration with Carly Simon) and an adult alphabet book. In 2014 he also completed a unique illustrated version of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" which was funded on Kickstarter and will be published by his wife's company Bad Monkey Productions.

Delamare is a fan of theater and film, so he enjoyed designing sets and costumes for a play, as well as creating production art for Warner Brother's Animated Pictures and a Francis Ford Coppola project. Currently he's working with Wendy Ice to adapt a screenplay based upon one of his children's books.

Delamare checks his Facebook pages daily and hears from followers in locations as populous as London and as remote as Pitcairn Island.
