There’s a time of year when it doesn’t feel like Spring and isn’t exactly Summer-feeling yet, either. It’s almost as if Mother Nature is too lazy to decide if she wants it to rain/snow/be windy/be 65 degrees outside. I’m not quite sure what you would call it… maybe a period of non-commital? Whatever the clever title, I have found the perfect artist to act as a soundtrack to the indecisive climate outside my window: David Poe.
Poe is the result of classic acoustic guitar playing blended with an almost too smooth voice. His songs have the capability to spill out ballad-esq stories, his raw talent not falling victim to sythesizers and excessive sound engineering. His acoustic-driven folk sound meets a bluesy voice and may remind some of you of Michael Bublé or Jeff Buckley. You can check out this trailer for his latest solo release – then check out these awesome tracks.
He just wrapped up another US Tour and is heading back to the studio to record his next solo release, while also starting a band with members Duncan Sheik, Morgan Taylor, Matt Johnson, and Fil Krohnengold. Who knew that Poe and Sheik were good buddies that tour all the time together?? Although their “new rock group” will undoubtedly sound interesting (to say the least), you should be on the lookout for a live EP from Poe’s recently finished tour within the next month or so.
