ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
David Kuhn

You may have not heard of David Kuhn, but chances are you’ve experienced his work. The singer/songwriter/bassist’s resume spans four decades. It includes 55 feature films and network television shows, and 42 Broadway credits, including Pete Townshend’s Tony Award-winning rock opera The Who’s Tommy where he worked with iconic Beatles producer George Martin. He’s performed alongside superstars such as Bernadette Peters, Natalie Cole, and Carole King, and his songs have been featured on major TV shows and in movies. Somehow, between all of this, he’s found time to pursue a satisfying solo career.

These days David is embracing a fresh chapter after relocating from bustling New York to bucolic Pennsylvania. Creatively rejuvenated, he announces his first solo release in over 20 years, On Our Way, out November 1st. It’s an imaginative, 5-song collection of groove-centric pop. Think: Sting, The Beach Boys, and Yes.

“Finishing this EP marks the beginning of a new life. I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing now,” David shares. “It’s the first project resulting from an ever-evolving plan to find a wonderful place to live, and build a studio where I can freely record music without the distraction or interruption of an urban environment.”

Signature to David’s songwriting are well-thought out arrangements, dynamic use of melody and counter melodies, subtle dashes of arty musicality, rugged riffs, instantly familiar hooks, airy harmony vocals, and ever so slightly sophisticated chord sequences. Thematically, David’s songs tend to be sincerely emotive and uplifting.

On Our Way has been carefully culled from a fevered burst in creativity that resulted 25 songs. For each song, David handled all the vocals, songwriting, instrumentation, engineering, producing, and mixing. The collection is vibrantly varied, traversing reggae-tinged vibes, bright pop-rock, simmering pop, slinky funk, and piano balladry. “Each song has a different tempo and groove, but I compiled songs that could still hang together through those feel changes,” explains David.

The track “I’m Feeling Good” conveys David’s optimistic life outlook, and features interesting stacked basslines that helped inspire and further the song’s narrative. “New York City’s energy has always astounded me. When I was experimenting with layering multiple bass tracks, I thought I imagined the sound of the subway roaring across the speakers— and then the lyrics came pouring out,” he shares. “I think that we all can relate to some version of dealing with the craze of a morning rush hour. If things are trying to hammer you down, you can choose to let them in and feel bad, or you can choose to find some inner drive and start feeling good.”

David’s penchant for deep pocket grooves and refreshingly eclectic musicality is evident on “On Our Way” where he conjures two other clever, pop bassist-composers, Sting and the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson. The stately piano ballad “Time To Say Goodbye” unfolds elegantly with ethereal textures to convey subtle drama. The song is an emotional centerpiece in this current batch of unreleased tracks as it explores his bold decision to leave his New York to brave the wilds of rural living in Pennsylvania.

Outside of his solo release output, David is actively pursuing songwriting and composing opportunities for film and TV with a newly signed publishing deal via the powerhouse Relative Music Group / Kobalt Music.
