Album Notes
Samuel David Erwin was born on St. Paddy's Day, March 17,1951 in Columbia,S.C. How appropriate for a young lad with Irish blood flowing through his veins. He began playing and studying guitar at the age of 14 and soon was playing with local R&B and beach music bands. Early musical influences included the Beatles, Steve Cropper, Jimi Hendrix, Terry Kath, Ray Charles, Wes Montgomery, John McLaughlin and Miles Davis. The variety of these artists would be paramount in the developement of Samuel David's ability to be comfortable and excel in various styles of musical expression.
Over the years he has traveled the world performing and recording with many artists including the Sensational Epics, Wildfire, Sanctuary, the Drifters, Coasters, Percey Sledge, Marvin Gaye, Tony Orlando & Dawn, the Thrasher Brothers, the Imperials, Brenda Lee, the Judds, Charly McClain, Dobie Gray, Otis Blackwell,Bobby Whitlock, Paul Overstreet and Holly Dunn. He has performed on the Grand Old Opry, the Wheeling Jamboree, Hee Haw, Austin City Limits, Nashville Now, Music City Tonight and other TV shows. David has worked theater gigs in New York City and has appeared in several movies.
Samuel David is an active studio musician having worked in Atlanta, New Orleans, L.A. and Nashville. He has played on records, demos, local and national jingles and movie and TV soundtracks. He also works as a producer for records, demos and jingles.
As a guitarist Samuel David is a perfectionist. But he has always been able to transcend the physical into the realm of pure emotion, soul and spirit. At one point in his career he was recording with legendary musician/singer Bobby Whitlock (Derek & the Dominoes). After listening to a playback of a solo Samuel David had just overdubbed, Bobby turned from the console looked him in the eye and said,"You got what Eric (Clapton) and Dwayne's (Allman) got." Enough said !
An active songwriter, Samuel David has had songs recorded by the Four Tops, Marie Osmond, Louise Mandrell, Brook Benton, the Archers, Charly McClain as well as others. He has recieved writer and publisher awards from the American Songwriter Festival and ASCAP.
Samuel David resides outside of Nashville,TN with his high school sweetheart,Beverly, (married 1970) and two dalmations Brownie and Merry. He has two married daughters and three grandchildren.
On the spiritual front Samuel David became a born again, Spirit-filled believer in Jesus Christ in the summer of 1972 - a journey that has worked much humility and maturity into his life. Through Dance Like David Ministries and his musical giftings it is his desire to enlighten through truth and encourage with hope all who have ears to hear.

CD Baby

The first track on Dangerous is a prelude, a wall of sound entitled "Valley of the Man Kings" that bubbles up and finally explodes into the first proper song on the album, the frenetic classic rock jam from which this Christian themed record takes its name. Bending guitar notes along with the stereotypes we may associate with gospel rock, the result is a refreshing take on spiritual enlightenment through music. Far from preachy, the tunes are intelligent and informative, both lyrically and musically. Extremely versatile with the guitar, David is happy to sit back and ride a bluesy groove, but when it's time to step up and wail out a solo, he can make the strings scream beautifully. Clearly a labor of love, there is no doubt that a great deal of time and effort went into the recording of this album. Listen to the sincerity in the playing and the vocals and it becomes obvious that this is a man whose life is full of dedication.


Rockin' Gospel!
This CD reminds me of the Jesus music of the early 70's. Hard rockin', strong Gospel lyrics and good singing to boot. My favorites are Dangerous, Open Arms, Ain't No Condemnation, and the instrumentals (remember those?) Highlands of Heaven & Good Time Gospel Boogie. Samuel David is a vetran musician and a breath of fresh air at the same time. Good Stuff!!!!

Steve Morley

strong southern-rock-styled musical mix with straightforward Christian emphasis
This CD features excellent production values and strong performances from guitarist/vocalist Erwin and a host of top-flight Nashville players and singers. It's rare to find a record -- let alone an independent one -- that combines such edifying and inspiring lyrical content with such hard-hitting and groove-oriented music. Christian rock can so often sound like white bread, but this is the deep-fried hush puppy variety, blending all manner of funky Southern musical influences. You'll catch whiffs of Texas, Muscle Shoals, Atlanta, Memphis and more, as well as some uptown jazz and an almost Spanish flavor to the disc's milder offerings. The title track will set you on fire, and Erwin makes room for a playful spirit as well inviting the Spirit of God throughout, making for a well-rounded record. If God is indeed a Boogie Man, as Joni Mitchell sang on her Mingus album, He'll be boogieing to this.
