As I listened to the music project from musician and singer/ songwriter David Woods, the album is called “My Stuff” and that is exactly what you get when you hear David’s wonderful & thoughtful music. The first track on this album is called “My Head In The Sand” and David has that hauntingly good sound that brings the flavor of a deep writer and David shows his pure talent in his writing. With that in mind the album turns and twists it way and you hear the rustic flavor of the song called “A Quiet Country Morning” and David once again proves his writing ability to have lyrics and songs that matter. With this in mind the next track is called “I Still Love you” and David has the ability with the acoustic sound that has that sound that allows your mind to travel back into time and hear the amazing smoothness of a guitar weeping along with the lyrics of the song called “I Still Love You” “To Lay Beside You A While” David embraces his amazing lyrical content and brings his focus into view, that shares a little folk ballad that is amazing and keeps the ears tuned into your speakers and allows you to feel the true emotional level of where David is at. A really beautiful love ballad, and I have told you before I am a true sucker for a good love ballad and this song is the epitome of a tried & true love ballad, and I really love it. “Move On” picks up the pace a little with the use of tambourine and David has that ability to move you with his amazing sound and superior writing skills that add so much and makes the song very fulfilling in every way. The next song called “Good Time Blues” David makes the guitar swing into action and swings into the blues and has a down and grindy feel to it that keeps that blues feeling with in the listener experience. “Sheba St. Marie” a song that has a tempo where you hear the accordion and the real feel of a true musician and one of those songs that you can’t get out of your head, it was contagious and a song that has a sing a long ability, which is nice, because every now & Then ya wanna just sit back and sing along with the song your listening to. The next song called “When Sadie Sings” David continues with his real roots, Folk Rock with meaning. I listened to this wonderful and amazingly beautiful album I really felt, that David is not only a country guy, his true sound envelopes the folk sound and kept me listening and entertained. “Kathy’s Song” David utilized the phasing process and gave me a true flashback to the 60’s and I thought this is where David arrived with the name of this album, ” My Stuff”. “The Love in Your Heart” the next song on the album has a hauntingly beautiful arrangement and David’s vocals just blend in so well within the mix of rock, pop, folk and just plain great music. David has the musicality part down to a science, and David’s lyrics are a cut above and really meaningful and very heartfelt. As I listen intently to this wonderful album and David’s beautiful lyrics and the musicality he really strikes me as a folk guy and has that ability to bring your heart in with his amazing acoustical strums of his weeping guitar and his outstanding lyrical content that carry a true message of what David wishes to share through his amazing and purely touching music. I thank David for his wonderful and amazing friendship & his superb musicality and lovely lyrics that really make sense and matter and warm the heart.
