Passionate, determined, prolific, energetic, creative.
Music lover, mentor, coffee-drinker. Retired from relationships, but in love with the world. Plus, lots more time to devote to music, writing, art, family and friends.
Influences too numerous to list, as my 3,000 record albums demonstrates. But some MAJORS: The Beatles, Gram Parsons, Todd Rundgren, David Bowie, Holland-Dozier-Holland, Joni Mitchell, Randy Newman, Ryan Adams, Aimee Mann, Leonard Cohen, Brian Wilson, Nick Cave, Radiohead, Amy Winehouse and the Moody Blues.
Style/genres: pop, Americana, rock, soul, folk-rock, country, jazz, blues, indie, even swing.

Skeleton at the Feast
As the title suggests, a haunting, melancholy song. A plaintive hurdy gurdy brings the song in. There are elements of prog rock, emo, folk-rock, classic rock, pop and alternative.



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

Flying Over the Ocean, featuring Tiana Pye
Energetic, spirited, driving, fun, melodic, uplifting, inspirational. If you like Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow, and other melodic pop-rock, you might dig this.



Pop
h h

Anything
I would describe this song as a power ballad? In the vein of Nilsson, Bryan Adams, Ryan Adams, Aerosmith, Toad the Wet Sprocket.



Rock
h h

Waiting for My Life (To Start Again)
Edgy, dark, pulsing, soulful, modern rock that's slightly industrial, with electronica touches.



Alternative Modern Rock
h h

Stand
Yes, it's an honest-to-gosh protest song. Melodic, with a strong chorus - a little biased - and shades of Counting Crows, The Beatles, Bruce Hornsby, Todd Rundgren, Hootie and the Blowfish, 60's folk-soul-rock. But I wouldn't necessarily call it retro.



Rock
h h

Never Saw a Woman
I traveled back in time to Philly, circa 1972, and stole this song from Sigma Sounds Studios...or was it off the air from WFIL-AM, Boss radio? If you like Motown and Philly Soul, you'll either dig or be offended. This is probably more Gamble and Huff and Thom Bell and Linda Creed, vs. Holland-Dozier-Holland. Think Spinners, O'Jays, Delphonics, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, etc. Right on, man!



R&B/Soul
h h

Now It's Time
Hard to categorize this song. It's pop, it's soft rock, it's indie, it's a little alternative folk-rock, in the vein of Nick Drake. I picked "easy listening/soft rock as a 2nd genre, but it's not "easy listening" to me. It's a pretty song, a little quirky, to me. Thanks for listening



Pop
h h

I'll Step Aside
Our model for this song, or at least my model, was Tame Impala's "Let it Happen." One of my favorite bands these days. Now, you may listen and not detect a smidgen of Tame Impala. I'm having trouble hearing much of that influence myself. But trust me, it was the inspiration. Anyway, to me, another kinda uncategorizable song. Could be rock, could be pop, could be alternative/indie, could be singer-songwriter. They don't have that category. If they did, that's probably the genre I'd pick for most



Alternative Modern Rock
h h

Bitter Wine, featuring Katie Kuffel
A little Norah Jones-Diana Krall vibe, perhaps? Pop, jazz, blues, soul. It's in there. Katie Kuffel, an amazing talent and songwriter par excellance sings on this song, which I wrote. Thanks, Katie!



Pop
h h

All You Ever Do is Rain, featuring Maddy Dullum
Another song inspired by the women in my life. I seem to pick a lot of "glass half-empty" types. "Debbie Downers." Thought about Eurythmics ("Here Comes the Rain Again")and Garbage ("Only Happy When it Rains") after this song came out.



Rock
h h

What Happened to Us All?
A song about regret, Influences swirling around in my head as this song was being realized: The Beatles, Oasis, Genesis, Procol Harum, Death Cab for Cutie.



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

The Violence of Your Heart, featuring Katie Kuffel
People have said this reminds them of a Florence and the Machine song. Hey, I can hear that. To me, it's a little Amy and Adele, with some Laura Nyro in there. Definitely a soul/rock/pop hybrid. Katie's voice is so GREAT! She makes the song. Recorded at the legendary Robert Lang Studios.



Alternative Pop Rock
h h

I've Been Waiting, featuring Lucas Field
Anthemic. (Hopefully, not anemic.) A song about waiting. Waiting for love, waiting for the long arc of morality to bend toward justice, waiting for all of us to wake up and see. Influences/common ground range from Journey, Foreigner, Asia and U2 to Coldplay and ____________ (You fill in the blank).



Rock
h h

Into The Blue
Everything is subjective, we all know. That said, I THINK this might be for fans of: The Beatles, Oasis, Thunderclap Newman, Matthew Sweet, The Shins, Tom Petty, Goo Goo Dolls, ELO, etc. Melodic, a-POP-alyptic, cum immortal-youth-seeking-truth singer-songwriter ballad rock with full band.



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

Happiness
Mining the same sonic underground as Gary Jules' "Mad World." Piano, strings and voice come together in this reflective, blue, even angry, offering on our much-vaunted and sought-after pursuit of happiness. Not all it's cracked up to be. As world-premiered Wednesday, June 15th, 2016, by Rob Ross in Popdose! Thanks!



Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana
h h

Into the Blue
A song about innocence, and innocence lost, confusion, idealism, hope, friendship, nostalgia, drugs, dreams, and whatever you want it to be about. If you like singer-songwriter stuff, Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Oasis, Randy Newman, the Eagles, Counting Crows, Ryan Matthews, Beck, etc. you might like...



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

Dreams
Dream pop. Lush, dreamy, spacey. If you like Beck's "Morning Phase," Pink Floyd, mellow brit pop, psychedelic leaning songs, with a touch of prog rock, you might dig. There's also some singer-songwriter juju going on. And, at the end, some soulful leanings.



psychedelic pop
h h

The Man in the Window, Featuring Abby London
From a review by Mark Taylor of Simply Pop Music: A work of art!!! If this doesn't make you stop and listen, then nothing will. Lyrics weave a story that grabs attention from the opening, the beautifully haunting voice of Abby London fits perfectly. This is a well crafted song, a work of such beauty that deserves to be a massive hit. Dim the lights, put those earphones on and enjoy.



Alternative Indie Folk

Michael, Just catching up (and way behind on my IMP recons!) Just want to thank you again for your support and faith and congrats to you on all the wins and to ALL of us. You truly do have the golden ears! And thanks for listening, and liking me, if you did, on Pandora. Exciting, interesting times...Hope you're well!

Hi again David! What a thrill to peruse your station here and see four 2017 Golden Kayaks icons!!! What a night that was! I nominated you for all 4 GK's and you swept them all! Not only that, but Whitherward and I went 2 for 2; Richard Scotti 2 for 2, Bryon Tosoff 3 for 3, Francesca Tamellini 2 for 3, Cat Dowling 1 for 1, and Shoe City Sound 1 for 1. All together, that is 7 of my station artists that went 15 for 16. Overall, my artists won 19 of the 26 2017 Golden Kayaks. Pretty damn proud of you all and your musical accomplishments and think I am pretty good at picking the cream of the crop!

Thanks, guys! I've been in a bit of a holidaze, but very excited about my Golden Kayak Award noms and busy "getting the vote out!" Peace and love! David. P.S. One of those songs nominated also got added to Panora, so super-excited about that. Good luck to us all and thanks for your best wishes, Michael, Neil, Scott, Gina, and all adding my songs! To be continued.

David, like I told you early on when I was first building my station, no one could ever 'pigeon-hole' you into just one genre. To prove that, I am nominating your songs for at least four 2017 Golden Kayaks in four separate genres. You sir, are an incredible musician!
