ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An Excerpt from the Liner Notes...

"With a piano style somewhere between Chopin and George Winston, David Nevue brings melody and heart back to instrumental music. His neoclassical piano stylings reflect his wide musical influences - Clannad, Chopin, Pink Floyd, Rachmaninoff, Renaissance, George Winston and Rush. David's music also reflects his love of literature, quoting
numerous influences from C.S. Lewis to The Bible.

David's artistry is demonstrated not only in his music, but in his thematic approach to each album. Rather than creating collections of unrelated compositions, David treats each individual work as but one chapter in a much bigger story that stirs the imagination and carries the listener to a gratifying conclusion."


A Review...

"David Nevue has a wonderful way of taking a simple melody line and filling it with meaning. His elegant playing style is never overly showy, preferring a direct and honest approach over showmanship. Nevue¹s compositions and interpretations are deeply personal as well as spiritual and inspirational...His music is so heartfelt and sincere that not a note seems out of place." - Kathy Parsons / Solo Piano Publications


About the Artist...

With a piano style somewhere between Chopin and George Winston, David Nevue brings melody and heart back to instrumental music. Perhaps Heartsong Review said it best when they described his music as "hauntingly romantic." David's music introduces us to a wilderness of musical ideas which the listener becomes anxious to explore.

Interestingly enough, if you ask David about his musical background he might surprise you. He comes not from a background of polished piano music, but grew up a typical 1980's teenager strongly under the influences of such progressive rock artists as Rush, Pink Floyd, and Kansas. David pursued rock music as a career throughout his college years, playing keyboards for a number of garage bands.

It wasn't until David's college roommate introduced him to the piano music of George Winston that he began to consider a career as a pianist. "Prior to hearing George Winston, my idea of 'solo piano' went no further than classical music, a form a music I've never felt much connection with. Winston's impressionistic style was at that time unlike any music I had ever heard. My roommate played Winston's music all the time, and it just sort of seeped in. As a result, I found myself playing around with a few melodies at the piano and I just never stopped."

In 1992 David released his first album, 'The Tower.' "At the time I recorded The Tower I was listening to a lot of the band Renaissance. I was really going for that very poetic, artsy, dramatic piano sound." David promoted 'The Tower' via mail order and at performances. Building on the support of his small but growing fan base, David put the profits from 'The Tower' back into his music. His efforts eventually resulted his next project, 'While the Trees Sleep' released in 1995. Since that time, Nevue has released several more CDs, including 'The Last Waking Moment,' 'The Vigil', 'Postcards from Germany' and a 'best of' collection called 'Whisperings.'

Today, David markets his music almost exclusively via the Internet. He is the author of the book 'How to Promote Your Music Successfully on the Internet,' and founder of the Music Biz Academy, an online resource for independent musicians selling music on the web.

Soothing, lovely, soul-stirring
This cd is my first introduction to David's music, and it is really amazing! The music will take you on a journey into the depths of your spirit if you allow it to do so. Thought-provoking, skillfully composed and with an incredible amount of introspection and passion, this is a treasure of an album that you will enjoy tremendously. Try it!

Perfect for Relaxing
It only takes a few seconds to listen to David Nevue's music playing for my stress to melt away. Over 7 years ago, a coworker introduced me to Nevue's music, since then I've loyally kept my work laptop's CD player loaded with his music, ready to help me work through stressful times. Recently, the CD was damaged and I replaced it through CD Baby (a great buying experience) - my carpenter who was working at my house immediately liked Nevue's music and appreciated listening to his Winston-like style.
This CD will become a part of your life!

Peaceful music for a hectic world. Just what the doctor ordered.
This cd will be the first of all Mr. Nevue's music that we will obtain. It is serene and calming after a hard day. This beautiful music may be compared to George Winston's music. However, I notice that Mr. Nevue's playing touch is intentional but not so pressured as others. This gentle style differentiates his cd as it promotes what we all need...peace.

Beautiful
Refreshing smooth and so peaceful to listen to. Sets the mood for a quiet time..

Ed Beck,

A fine collection of a great solo-style artist
Whisperings is a collection of vivid imagery and stories done in an instrumental form, as performed by a superb pianist. An artist and writer that gets the listener lost in his own world, as David creates the scene and setting. The recordings has been clearly preserved for this collection with outstanding tone and resilliance.

DB

Terrific solo piano artist
Beautiful solo piano music; if you like artists like George Winston, Liz Story, Dave Eggar, and Alex Grant, this CD is an absolute must.

Kathleen Ayala
