Twelve songs and forty something minutes is the duration of bluesman, David Wall’s album. Black Hen Music/Ontario Arts Council finance this diversified, well written LP. Ken Whiteley handles the brilliant production. ‘Have No Fear’ is superbly written, describing a reason and place for all in life. The production is somber, yet lively; it is truly unique, weird and awesome. The instruments are a plenty on each song. For a few minutes the musicianship far surpasses David’s vocal range, yet he still holds his own. ‘All About Water’ could be an anthem for any baptism…mine was July 7, 2007 and I was hearing this song around that time! Yet his lyrics are about overcoming wanting to hide his body when swimming, due to his physique and fears…A brilliant song!! The record has an inspiring, upbeat spirit and lyrical contextual realm to it. David is definitely bound for other producers, I can see him suiting David Foster’s production. D.W. is eclectic and well rounded, I don’t think putting him or his band in one genre is fitting. He moves towards being a pop singer on ‘The Spell I Was Under’. ‘The World’s Most Happy Drowning Boy’ is one of the many cool and kooky lyrics on David Wall’s great CD! Buying this release will give you true musicianship through and through.
