The Solitude of Here

by Dave Tate

Relaxing, calming acoustic folk with spiritual lyrics. Mellow acoustic guitar, sultry violin and cello support Tate's intimate and soaring tenor voice. Imagine Paul Simon's softer solo work mixed with Jeff Buckley's softer material.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Once in a blue moon you discover an artist who is so incredibly good that you can't really believe not all music magazines are writing about him already. To me Dave Tate is such a person...quiet and spiritual, in a way that reminds one of Jeff Buckley's Grace, with the same kind of evasive, gripping melodies and sung by an equally beautiful voice.... At once versitile, dynamic and angel-like...He possesses the special kind of talent you only see come along once a decennium. If you're lucky."

- Haven Magazine

"You rarely come across a CD of such exquisite quality that you are entirely enthralled by it. A CD which is always close to your sound system so you can play it daily. A CD which keeps you awake because you cant seem to get some of its passages out of your head and which, when played in company, will immediately stop all conversation and make people ask you about its artist and title. In short, a CD which will make your heart beat faster and which will dominate your musical life for a longer period of time. The brilliant singer/songwriter who made such a CD is Dave Tate...The Solitude of Here, has the introspective, intimate quality of a Nick Drake CD...All songs are sung, or to put it more aptly, experienced by Tate with great intensity, which makes them get under my skin permanently. The tracks on this CD are characterized by vulnerable poignancy instead of cheap sentiment or melodrama...Breathtakingly beautiful...A true listening experience...This masterpiece is worthy of a place in the singer/songwriter Hall of Fame"

- Folk Forum

"This is by far the most grabbing male folk album to come through our doors in months. It's hard not to make comparisons to Paul Simon's more sensitive folk writing with a similar mix of warmth, open space, breathy vocals, innocence and a dewy, green clarity of intention. His songs have a way of stealing your breath away and removing you momentarily from the passing of time, suspending you in full-body harmonies. While he has a knack for open-hearted, reflective songs, there is the slightest echo of acoustic jam band writing, giving this album a well-balanced emotional scope from track one to eleven. Bravo."

Becky Foster

He clearly articulates the field of folk/rock music
Not only are his lyrics amazing, guitar ability outstanding, and voice uncomparable, his charm captivates his audience as well. This is one of my favorite cd's to listen to whether I'm hanging out with friends, driving in my car, or relaxing. Truly, Dave's music sets the mood for about any occasion.

Dean Powell

Return of the great songwriter
This CD is in my player almost without exception, I love the intimate breathy quality he gets with his voice and also the rich full one. Seldom have I heard such emotionally moving songs. His lyrics are incredibly insightful as well.
This is worth picking up. It's the best CD I've heard in years.

Amazing artist
I first heard Dave and his wife (Victoria Lagerstrom) live a few years back. I was completely blown away by their vocal talent. I bought every single CD they each had to offer. Dave's amazing voice and killer guitar skills make his CD a frequent player in my player.

Riker Mckirmic

Wow
I love this CD, If you are into genuine music that put's you in a meditative state this is one you need. I've been brought to tears on many occasions by Dave's music. It's truly divine. Thank you Dave.

(No ) Music for the millions
This music should be listened to by many people, not just by afficionados! Clear and warm sounds, full of emotion: David Tate is a master in evoking moments of reflection and meditation without using any false or artificial sentiment.
