Album Notes
Fake Fur Coat, the follow-up to Here Comes the Bright Light, was recorded over 4 days in San Francisco in Feb 2001. Due to a lack of money to print and release the record, and life, it ended up sitting under David's bed and was never released. Until now. 13 amazing songs from one of Ireland's best Songwriters, this album catalogs the end of a relationship, the beginnings of other ones.

to write a review


This is an album of eclectic, pensive, deleriously fantastic music. From the goofy poppy first track 'Twirl For Me', to stirring emotional ballads like Jackson, and on to the astonishing delightful tracks 'You're Some Kind of Christian', 'I Can't Speak Your Name'. Each track on this album feels like it was wrought out in the edgings and ebbings of a master poet overlaying the most delightfully trippy melodies. This is folk/pop. This is brilliant. And nothing will match the sheer power and passion of track 'Amber & Green'. I really love this album and songwriter!

You know it's good when you get the tingle on the back of your neck. Beautifully written, performed, layered and honest. If you can't find a song or two on this album to love you don't love music.


David Hopkins is fantastic. If you like David Gray, Nick Drake, Damien Rice, etc., then you have to hear him.

This CD has a few songs that are on some of David's other CDs, so fans may want to download only the tracks they are missing.
