ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

Edinburgh based singer songwriter David Heavenor has been called the mystery man of Scottish music by David Scott, Radio presenter and musician in Scottish Band The Pearlfishers. Journalist and broadcaster Tom Morton writing in The Scotsman called his song Linger and Go 'a masterpiece of songwriting.' Other plaudits for songs also appearing on his first album Private (The Night Visitors ) come from Ricky Ross who called Jenny and the Cold Caller 'One of the best songs ever written'. He subsequently featured it as one of his Tracks of My Years on The Ken Bruce Show on BBC Radio 2. David’s next album Winter's Children appeared in August 2001 on the Glasgow based Sticky Music label.

In his Scotsman review Tom Morton described it: 'Songs made to last. Delicate and full of diffident power. The cool delivery remains somewhere between Al Stewart and Nick Drake, the unexpected guitar runs, the lyrics you can't quite pin down, but which echo round you brain, shifting meaning, ornate yet direct, complex and with an overwhelming sense of Edinburgh in winter.'

Senior BBC Music producer Stewart Cruickshank said: ’ A beautiful album in every respect…’

David's track I'm Watching Rosanna’ from his album Winter's Children was included in a 49 track, 2 disc compilation showcasing the best in contemporary Scottish Music. The CD, Seriously Scottish produced by The Scottish Music Centre in Glasgow, is not commercially available but acts as an educational tool and industry shop window. A live solo version of his song Candide was also included in a CD marking the 25th Anniversary of Radio Scotland.

David’s third album The Automatic Eye was released on 1 August 2006 featuring 12 songs recorded and produced in the studio at East Kilbride Arts Centre and produced by David Scott. David is joined on keyboards, bass, guitar and multifarious other instruments by David Scott of Glasgow bands The Pearlfishers and Teenage Fanclub whose other member Stuart Kidd plays drums.

On Sign in a Stranger ‘It’s fantastic… ‘ Bryan Burnettt BBC Radio Scotland

‘the production is gorgeous sounding as you would expect from the Pearlfishers’ David Scott...’ Mary Ann Kennedy BBC Radio Scotland

David’s next album In Northern Towns Like These was produced in 2009. His song Bobby in the Wire is currently being featured on the website in memory of republican Bobby Sands. www.bobbysands.com. ‘ Intriguing ….’ Roddy Hart BBC Radio Scotland.

Another Eden was released in May 2010 and recorded at Chem 19 in Blantyre and in home studio in Edinburgh and recently featured when David was chosen as songwriter of the week on Radio Scotland.

His next 14 track album Fall was recorded on a home studio using acoustic guitar and instrument samples and the track Dreaming Adam was described as 'Very contemplative...beautiful...' Radio Scotland

‘Think of the best songwriters you know . Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Webb for example. Choose what you think are their two best songs and then just listen to two songs on this album (Jenny and the Cold Caller and Linger and Go) and tell me we’re not talking pantheons here. Then go and check out all the others. You won’t regret it.’
