ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Thank you for your interest in Center Field.
Center Field is a first for me in many ways: it\'s is the first project done completely in and for HeartSongMusic, it is the first collection I did all of the arranging, recording, mixing and mastering, all art work and printing was done at HeartSongMusic. It is the first collection where 3 of my children are featured, two with solos (Kelli on \"Change\" & Emily on \"Share It With Me\")and one with back up vocals and a solo verse (Nick on \"Evidence of Love\"). My daughter Christy played clarinet on \"Come To Me\" as well. It is the first collection that MyBeloved Linda, \"Lefty\", \"the piano teacher\", plays on two tracks. And it\'s the first studio recording of mine with live mandolin. (Thanks Bill) and drums (Thank you Tony) that makes the songs come alive like no synth-keyboard could ever do.
Center Field has been a labor of deep love for at least two years; eight if you consider that I wrote Center Field in 2000 and knew it would some day be the title song of a new CD. Other than for two songs (Six String Orchestra and Evidence of Love) every note, word, melody line; every instrumental arrangement, phrasing and in some cases, every moment of silence was all created in the HeartSongMusic Studio. I believe this is a CD for just about everyone filled with story, love, reflection, hope, appreciation and relationship. Center Field is a deeply personal reflection of who I am in relationship to so many people; especially my wife, Linda; my children and friends and God.
With all that said, I hope you enjoy experiencing Center Field as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Also, please feel free to email me what your experience of Center Field is...good, great or not so. My email address is david.firth5@gmail.com.
Until we meet again, thank you.
Blessings, David

Center Field
Center Field is the most enjoyable collection of original songs I have listened to in many years. I have each of David Firth\'s other CDs and must say I like his departure from presenting primarily Christian messages is very refreshing. It sounds and feels genuine, deeply sincere and passionate, especially about his children (Calls Me Dad and Good Morning Olivia). The love songs are touching and poetic and the ballads and story songs (Center Field, \'Cept You, Lefty\'s Lullaby) are visual and very catchy. I am particularly impressed with the voices of Kelli Firth (Change), Emily Firth (Share It With Me) and Nick Firth (Evidence of Love)..three up and coming artists that I hope to hear much more from in the very near future. I have to say, two of my favorites (among many) are The Faith Cafe and The Body of Love. There is something so uplifting and hopeful about both of those songs.
Well done, David. Please continue on the musical path you are on right now and please let us all know when your next CD is available.

The songs I liked the most, which is not to say that I didn\'t like the others...were:
1)Goodmorning Olivia- The feel of the song is totally modern but very you at the same time. Like I had jokingly said on the phone it\'s very \"David 2008\". It\'s a brilliant cover of your own original song. I especially like the quietness of you and the new guitar arrangment. It\'s very intimate and special.
2)Living in Your Eyes- I just all around like this song!! It\'s beautiful, lyrically, I really like how it begins softly and then picks up speed.
3)Calls Me Dad- This one has sort of snuck up on me. Not that I didn\'t like it before, I just never realized how much I liked it until I listened to it again. Like \"Living in Your Eyes\" I think it is lyrically beautiful. In both songs its just a great combination of melody and lyric.
4)Faith Cafe- It\'s just a fun song. The more I listen the more I find it fun and energizing. You\'re voice gets a little bit drowned out though, but you said you took care of more mixing a little while ago, so perhaps that is fixed. This is a song that really works with all the instruments, because it has that feel. It\'s like a big party, and you really capture that with the instrumentation.
5)Evidence of Love- I have always loved this song, and with you and Nick singing together it really makes it extra beautiful.
6)Centerfield - it\'s just a feel good song. I like how you\'ve blended both worlds of baseball and piano into it.
7) Lefty\'s Lullabye - Beautiful
Of course I would recommend this CD to others. I have recommended your music in the past and I alway will. To me it is art, and I believe anyone who truly appreciates music will see that. I also think it\'s a very family oriented CD. There are a lot of fun and upbeat pieces, and then there are some slower, more lilting pieces. Yet, none of them are really crazy heavy...you know? This new CD has more light in it. So anyone that\'s in a good mood and wants to stay there would love this CD!!
