ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
David Wayne Mathias


David Wayne Mathias was born on August 7th, 1974 in Silvis, Illinois. He was raised in a small rural town called Cleveland, Illinois. He possesses an Associates degree in Electronics and is presently employed at Williams White and Company in Moline, Illinois as a electrical enginer. He resides in Geneseo, Illinois with his wife and two children.

David developed a passionate interest in guitar when he was 12 years old. While growing up, he still recalls country songs playing on the radio throughout the house. He has been performing and writing country music since the early 90's.

In the late 90's, a vocal contest would start his career in the right direction. After finishing first place he was directed to a local recording studio. The engineer showed interest in David's writing abilities and offered to produce his debut album "Anywhere", which was released in October of 2001.

While USA Network was announcing the birth of "Nashville Star", a friend insisted that David should audition for the show. After making numerous trips to cities such as Chicago and St. Louis, he was noted as a final qualifier in both cities. Choosing to represent The Bull Radio in the St. Louis area, he was off to Kansas City, Missouri to compete in the regional competition. David finished in the top 48 out of over 8,000 entries.

In the year of 2003, the band "Dave Mathias and The Outlaws" took southeast Iowa by storm. Within the first nine months, they would perform such venues as Ragbrai, Midwest Old Threshers Reunion, Sweet Corn Festival, and many others. Even though the bands fan base was building, David was forced to make the decision to follow his dream to record in Nashville when he received the offer of a lifetime from a Nashville senior songwriter in early 2004.

After a seven month wait, the album "I Found A New Love" was released on August 14th, 2004. The release was produced by J. Gary Smith, John "Pap" McCollum, and David Wayne Mathias. The ten song compilation bears two songs co-written by David which include, "You Complete Me" and "Garden of Stone".

The attention of this Nashville produced album resulted in the signing of a management contract with Nelson Larkin and John "Pap" McCollum and also a producer agreement with Nelson Larkin. Nelson Larkin owns and operates Sunbird Records in Nashville, Tennessee and has produced such artists as Toby Keith, Neal McCoy, and Earl Thomas Conley. John "Pap" McCollum has been a songwriter for EMI Publishing as well as Zomba Music Publishing in Nashville, Tennessee for 11 years. He has had cuts released by major artists such as John Michael Montgomery and Toby Keith. The new David Wayne Mathias release that will be produced by Nelson Larkin will be primarily used to pitch to major labels.

True country music. A great independent album.
I Found A New Love is the follow-up to David Wayne Mathias'first album Anywhere and shows considerable growth while maintaining his style - which seems to be true country music. A great independent album.

Track by Track Review:
1. Love's A 50/50 Proposition - A catchy, upbeat song about the partnership that relationships are supposed to be about. Very nice track.
2. You Complete Me - A more traditional love song, that steers clear of the usual cliché rhymes. Well-written and well-performed.
3. Heaven Sent Me You - With the classic sound of an early 80's country song, David delivers a wonderful country song on par with country's greatest storytellers. Fantastic.
4. Hurt A Little - Some of my favorite songs come from the "Circle of Life" song mold, where the listener is presented with a life-long view of the song's subject character. Hurt A Little is an above-average track from that mold. Not destined to be a hit, but an enjoyable album cut.
5. I Just Want To Be Me - Mathias kicks it up a notch with this song whose style reminds me of the kind of tune that Garth Brooks would record. Not a stand-out track, but a sure bet for a great addition to David's live shows.
6. Second Chances - Perhaps the reason I Just Want To Be Me doesn't connect with me is that Mathias is so good with emotionally-driven ballads... a fact he proves with this tender and inspiring song about not giving up with times are tough.
7. Atlanta Upside Down - I suddenly feel like a should be sitting in an old run-down bar drinking a beer. Another classic country winner, this time about a haunted heart trying desperately to find the love that got away. There should be more music like this on country radio.
8. Do You Don't or Do You Do - This one keeps me in the bar a little bit longer, for this swinging dance-hall number sure to make you feel like hitting the hardwood floor for a spin.
9. I Found A New Love - The title-track, and another great country song. This is a song that I could easily hear Randy Travis or George Jones performing, but David Wayne Mathias does just as well with it.
10. Garden of Stone - Sad and beautiful at the same time, a loving tribute to friends that have passed on. A masterpiece. Anyone who has lost a loved-one - and any fan of great country music - needs to hear this song.
