ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Review from CDBABY:

"With a voice like hot buttered rum, Bailey once again delivers a folk album worthy of any prime collection. The album really should be packaged with a flannel blanket for aiding those inevitable goosebumps and to underscore the pervasive snuggly, thoughtful, warm, buzzing vibe his songs emote. With the melodic grace and ease of James Taylor and the modern, guy-next-door approach of David Wilcox, it's clear that Bailey is inseparable from his songs- that there is just as much of him in his songs as there is songs within him."

david is well-known as a 12 survivor of a malignant brain tumor that was supposed to have killed him in 6 months. His amazing story of hope and survival has been shared with and inspired thousands of fans all over the world. If you are reading this here on CD baby, you are also learning that david is a prolific songwriter and keeps a relentless tour schedule across the nation and the world in support of his multiple CD’s. The more you get to know his music, the more you will learn of the many sides of david: survivor, yes, but also poet, philosopher, theologian, comedian, activist, husband, father, friend, and lover of all things coffee. This Presbyterian, passionate, fully reformed, liberally conservative peace-loving hippie-folksinger will wow you exotic guitar licks, but also inspire you with words you only wish you’d written yourself. Take the time to browse, listen, buy a couple CD;’s, visit his website, www.davidmbailey.com, and odds are before long, he’ll be in your area and you’ll be a fan of the music and the man. Thanks for stopping by – Keep on!!

david's story is one of tenacious faith and gentle passion. On July 4, 1996, doctors told david he had a malignant brain tumor and would be dead by Christmas. david left his corporate career and returned to his first love of songwriting and performing and set out to share the hope on which his life depended. Eight years, nine albums, 39 states and hundreds of concerts later, david and his music are alive and well.
The son of Presbyterian missionaries, david spent his childhood in Beirut, Lebanon. He learned his first chords from his seventh grade English teacher, then went on to study classical guitar. david soon began writing his own songs and first entered the studio at the age of 13. The Lebanese civil war forced him to complete high school in Germany where he spent his weekends as a street musician; during these years he also formed a small ensemble that toured throughout Central and Eastern Europe. In college, he played extensively in an original acoustic duo, but then put his guitar away and entered corporate America. Ten years later, following his diagnosis,he returned to the stage in what has become an amazing full-time calling.
david's songs are reminiscent of folk legends like James Taylor and Cat Stevens, though he also points to the work of Kahlil Gibran and J.S. Bach as being influential in his writing. Strong melodies and intricate finger picking set a perfect backdrop for his warm baritone as he delivers keen and witty insights about his favorite topics: time, faith, hope, love, and dreams. Hailed as a "prophet with a guitar, " david pens lyrics that resonate with surprising depth and clarity among audiences of all ages, keeping his music both universal and timeless.
His story has been featured on CBS News/48 Hours, 60 Minutes, Fox/Health, Family Health channel, and NPR; articles about him have appeared in newspapers and magazines across the country. He was a 2003 Kerrville NewFolk winner and his recordings have received many other songwriting awards. Yet it is alone with his audiences where david finds his greatest joy: from Beirut to Budapest, from Pittsburgh to Portland, and on hundreds of stages in between, he has inspired and entertained thousands of listeners. In churches, conference centers and coffeehouses, david challenges all of us to live passionately and to treasure the beauty of each new day.

David Bailey keeps getting better and better!
David M. Bailey's Silent Conversation CD is the best of them all! With a Christian outlook to every song, it makes me a better person just listening to each word he sings!

Amelia Lewis

It meant a lot
I enjoyed this CD a lot. I sent a copy to my friend and it helped her while she was going through a rough time. The songs are so honest about prayer. They express what I think sometimes, but have no idea how to say.

One of the best!
I heard an interview with Mother Teresa once where the interviewer asked her what she said to God when she prayed...she said she didn't say anything...she just listened. So the interviewer (perplexed) asked, okay, so what does God say to you when you pray...she replied...nothing...He just listens...that interview made me want to purchase this CD...and it is that intensity and density with which David digs to find the depth within each of our doubts and fear, hopes and beliefs. I highly recommend any of David's CD's for long drives, lazy days, background music for a cup of coffee, or just because...especially this one...for those silent conversations that we all have with each other and with God!

Touches your heart and soul
Each one of David's songs reachs in and grabs my heart and soul. He just keeps getting better and better. Very thought provoking. He truly has changed my life.

You Talk To God In Song!
David you are an inspiration and testimony to all! It reflects in your words as you sing from what is in your heart. You tell the story as we listen. You will always have a place on Whitedove Radio. Be blessed in Him.

Crystal Clear

You See Into His Heart!
I've played David on my station for years. Every song he sings you can hear the depths of his heart and hear exactly what he is thinking. He is human and talks with the Lord and we get have the exciting pleasure to hear the genuine story within him. He is a treasure! Blessings Crystal

David Bailey touches my soul again.
My own personal Easter celebration anywhere anytime. This CD follows my search for God in places when I can't pray until I find myself identifying with a wounded healer. I have already purchased additional copies for others.

the music comes from a pretty deep well
I feel like I’m intruding a little something that’s got a life all of its own, by coming in to David’s Music 9 albums down the road. So what; it’s immediately apparent that the music comes from a pretty deep well. David has turned misfortune around to his benefit, both in terms of his story and apparently, his spiritual walk too.

A fine balance has been achieved; the songs are sensitive without being sentimental; direct without being clichéd, and easy while revealing depth. I also think there is a good mix of devotion and experience, this man has a heavenly home but his feet are firmly grounded by compassion. It’s easy to write profoundly about darkness and pain, it’s harder to write compellingly about light and freedom. However, David M. Bailey has done so.

My favourite tracks (3 days in) are You'll Never Know, O Sacred Head (an incredible contexturalisation of a Baroque master piece), Challenges, Under the Mercy, Be still. I’m reminded of Peter Himmelman without the overstatement, and James McMurtry with some green shoots around his heels.

I’ll be exploring these songs for some time, I suspect.

This will lift your soul from the depths to the heights of hope!
These songs come from a heart that knows joy in the midst of pain, hope in the midst of struggle, and deep gratitude for each day lived. Keep on singing!
