Before heading to a show featuring artists unfamiliar to me, I like to familiarize myself with their material. Well, I’m just about to head out to the opening show of Stereophonic and the only musician at said show whose album I hadn’t fully listened to was David Simard. I just missed his last show in Sackville when he played with Corey Isenor and Jon McKiel and after listening to this debut album, I absolutely can’t wait to hear him live.
David has an eclectic style and is a complex songwriter, who touches on elements of jazz, folk, blues while utterly and confidently holding down a sound that is uniquely his own.
There’s more to say but I gotta run to catch the show, so just give the album a listen
