"2nd Musical Showcase a 'Rocking' Good Time"

"Dave Andrew Wiebe was the surprise of the night [at the Strathcona Showcase]. Writing all his own songs and accompanying himself on his guitar, his voice told stories the audience liked to listen to." - The Gazette


Shipwrecked... My Sentiments (2006)



The first time David Andrew Wiebe ever graced the stage as a solo artist was in the summer of 2003. At the time, he simply presented a handful of guitar instrumental pieces, with no foreknowledge of where that would lead.

In 2005, he would go on to perform more frequently as a solo artist, and in addition to his guitar playing, he also began singing in concert. This marked a drastic transition in his career.

On September 8, 2006 Wiebe would go on to release his first solo album, Shipwrecked... My Sentiments. This album showcased his frantic fret-work and Costello-esque vocal tones. The album was markedly different from previous band efforts in which the primary focus was the Hard Rock genre. Shipwrecked... featured more of a laid back vibe, treating audiences to his versatility and creative imagination.

Wiebe's songwriting is eloquent, rich, and sometimes quirky. Many of his songs address the human condition of brokenness and spirituality. Relationships are at the heart of life, and it is a favorite subject of Wiebe's, who has gone through his fair share of tragedy and hardship; surviving a major disaster, the death of his father and his cousin Mitch.

Wiebe is also fluent in Japanese, having spent 8 and a half of his formative years there. Audiences have been treated to songs in both English and Japanese, and while English-speaking audiences may not understand what is being sung, they still appreciate the art and craft of singing in a language other than their own.

Wiebe, having experienced what it means to "fall in love" in 2008, is currently working on a second solo album in which he laments the loss of his love but also expresses his hope for the future.
