Here is what David says about himself…
As of March 2, 2019 – TOTAL MUSIC STREAMING PLAYS by ARTIST David Vaters now over 15,000,000 and counting!
David Vaters passion as a singer/songwriter is something he could not hold back any longer. With years of honing and perfecting his songwriting skills, working with great players on two continents, David decided to release Volume 1 and Volume 2 of his most recent songwriting as a independent solo artist.
“It’s really hard to believe that “A Voice In The Wilderness Volume 2”, is only David Vaters’ second solo album. All things taken into consideration, it actually sounds like his twentieth.” Music Critic Rick Jamm – Jamsphere.com
Huffington Post, stated, “David’s music is creative and original, suffused with an ardent spiritual awareness rare in today’s music industry.”
CCM Magazine featured David in an interview recently describing him as, – Something new, all over again!
The upcoming ‘Volume 2’ boasts most of the same impressive line-up as its predecessor, a collaboration that had critics calling ‘Volume 1’ “nothing if not mature, deftly crafted and powerful.” Like that album, ‘Volume 2’ will be part of Vaters’ ‘A Voice in the Wilderness’ collection of volumed records. “If this is the first album of his out of the starting blocks, at least in a titular sense, imagine what gems are likely to follow,” raved Dave Franklin of Los Angeles – The Plug.
Very good songs on this album, delivered by David Vaters in a bowie type approach which really punches through. The backing vocals remind me of the sort of sound the Beatles had. Apart from drums and keyboards which are excellent, the Cd chugs along nicely without any disappointment. Very good, especially enjoyed the vocals and the songs. Nicely put together offering! Well done!
