A prolific songwriter who doesn't know where to start in getting his songs heard, says the note with this tape... Now, there's a familiar story, and the person to find an answer to it will earn the thanks of Christian musicians everywhere! However, David's songs have done well enough to get this former semi-pro footballer (Leek Town & Witton Albion) a place on a Bible study course at college in New York, and will be worth hearing live when he returns. Think of Al Stewart-plays-the-Eagles and you've got the general feel; a fraction over-written on the lyrics, which is the sign of the solo songwriter without a band outlet, but good stuff. This four-song demo is available for the cost of the postage to those who would care to give the guy a chance when he returns.
