THE NEW RECORD "DOZEN" BY DAVID LYNCH & FRIENDS HAS BEEN RELEASED. THE SINGLE "MAHATMA" IS CURRENTLY RANKED #88 OUT OF OVER 2420 SONGS ON NEIL YOUNG'S "LIVING WITH WAR" WEBSITE http://neilyoung.com/lwwtoday/lwwsongspage.html Lynch is an Emmy winner and 2 time Golden Reel award winner (for sound fx), and has been writing songs since childhood. As a solo singer songwriter, he is a 3 time finalist at the Sierra Songwriters Festival in Sonora CA, a 2 time finalist at the Founders Title Folk and Bluegrass Festival in Park City UT, a finalist at the Sisters Music Festival in Sisters OR, and finalist at the Tumbleweed Music Festival in Richalnd WA. He will happily tell you that his father’s name was also David Lynch, and further that he holds no animosity whatsoever for anyone else in the film or music business with the same name. David spent 5 weeks in Austin, Texas and 5 weeks in Nashville, Tennessee trying to reach the self imposed goal of 100 live shows. Based on the quality of his first solo release he was invited to join in for “writers night” at the Bluebird Cafe (holy ground for songwriters, and writer’s night is by invitation only). He played every week while in Nashville, and has made several trips back to play the Bluebird since making the move to the Central Coast of California. DOZEN.....David Lynch’s 3rd album of original songs (2 covers on this one) features the fantastic Dorbro work of Frank Duncan, and the outstanding Mandolin stylings of Mark Travis. Lighter and more accessible than “Good Wood” (his inspired release of 2001) or “David Lynch” (his self-titled release of 1996), the extra instrumentation gives the brilliant song writing some “get up and go.” The band is happy to pitch in for social causes, and has played benefits for The Green Party, Code Pink, Children's Hope Foundation, and a meet and greet for Democratic Congressional Canidate Sharon Beery (to name a few).
“.....Santa gave me an iPod this Christmas and I moved into the 21st century of music listening. Shuffle is a revelation because I discovered I listened sparlingly to whole CD's, but now quite often to shuffle which I call Radio (XXXXXXX).
I was listening one day and this guitar came along, kind of New Orleans, thought maybe Anders Osborn, but the voice wasn't quite right. It was David Lynch! I am happy to hear your music along with all the other artists of rock, blues, folk, and whatever.
I few days ago I was just about to go to work and I set my back on the bed staring at the ceiling, pondering whether I should move. On comes Buddha's Belly prodding me to get moving and do what needs to be done. The iPod knows!......”
I met you a few years back at a songwriter/music festival in Sonora, CA. I enjoyed hearing your unique , catchy style of singing and playing and picked up your self-titled CD. It sat at the bottom of my record closet for a couple of years. I pulled it out about 6 months ago, and wow, what a discovery, its been my favorite CD ever since! I love it when I find stuff like that, stuff that’s been sitting right in my closet or backyard that didn’t come to my attention until the time was right, I guess........”
“......I was looking for a CD to put on (besides da Rule, NSync, Blink 182, Christina Aguilara, etc) and I saw yours and went s _ _ _ I haven’t listened to this yet. So I listened the whole time I painted-- probably over 5 times-- I am so impressed and want you to know how much enjoyment I received!! I got up this morning and listened and am listening tonight. You are very talented and I couldn’t listen anymore without telling you how much I love your music. My daughter (12) asked if all this stuff happened to you. I told her you wrote it, so it came from some-where in you.....”
