In times when it gets depressing keeping up with the news, we need input to counterbalance the feeling that the world is going down the drain.
May I introduce a very promising artist to fill that position? Let’s take a listen to one of my personal MVA (most valuable artists) of 2016 – David Nyro.
400 songs – and counting… Which songwriter can claim that? David can. Music from the heart, for the heart, that’s what he does with inspirational persistence.
One example: What happens after a traumatic event? Either you cave in or you raise to the occasion. After David had almost lost close relatives to the Boston Marathon Bombing he took to pen, paper and his guitar and created a beautiful and touching song to inspire. Not to give in to the prejudice and violence but coming together based on the the greatest common denominator, love.
A message to sweep across the globe, the nation, or at least from Connecticut to Seattle. If you get that reference, we’re friends.
That song is why and how I got in touch with him in the first place.
Lucky me, David Nyro is not one of those up-and-coming artists with an attitude, so we get in touch for his music from time to time. First time I listened to his music I felt like I was seeing his true colors, which doesn’t happen very often these days. His voice makes you feel like a good hug from a good friend. Proven to be a very open and empathetic person, which so totally reflects in his music, I can also add amazing vocal and musical talent to his description.
His latest EP “Writer of Wrongs, Singer of Songs”, which you can get/listen to here for free and in a more supportive 😉 manner on CDBaby, has been recorded in the legendary Robert Lang Studios. Rightfully so, I’d say. It’s not even about the legendary status, but that wouldn’t have been established if the equipment wasn’t top notch. Good thing David and his friends got to use those tools! Besides that, he gets great reviews and coverage from outlets like the Huffington Post, popmatters and more… go ahead, click the links!
I also recommend to heart the song “Remembrance Day”,because it’s a solid reflection of who he is and what he stands for. Quote David Nyro himself: “Our dream is for the song to be used to help spread awareness about gun control, mental health, bullying and related issues, and to provide comfort, inspiration, motivation and more. This song means a lot to me, in part, because of my nieces close call at the Boston Marathon bombing.”
I think David belongs to a more and more rare kind of artist, namely more musician than entertainer. But I leave that judgment to you, HOLD UP, under one condition: You have to really listen to at least his latest EP “Writer of Wrongs, Singer of Songs” AND leave a honest response to him, right, okay that are two conditions, but we good?
Let’s support good music!
Since this article is only the first encounter with him you’ll get on nocheapthrill I’ll keep it short and am looking forward to an interview in the not so far future.
Where you can find David Nyro on the web:
I’ll leave you with some essential information by the artist himself: “My Story: I think my story is that mine is a dream deferred. A dream I’ve been pursuing, off and on, since I was 8 years old. So a long time! I’ve written a lot of songs and I like to think they’re genre-bending and genre-blending. Rock, pop, soul, folk, jazz, indie, prog-rock, garage rock, singer-songwriter, Americana, etc. Lots of life, and ups and downs, but music has always been a constant.
