The best kept secret in music


"Radio ISW -Germany"

"It's always difficult to write about a CD that still grows every time you listen to it,
but let's give it a try. This album puts David Morreale into the major league of
contemporary songwriters. He has songs that deal with a wide spectrum of emotions,
everything done with great musical finesse; Perfect!" - Hansjoerg Malonek

"Shortcuts - David Morreale’s From the Dirt"

June 3, 2005 in Voices

From the Dirt
David Morreale
Mud Luscious Records

David Morreale is a talented independent musician who explores a variety of acoustic musical styles in his new album, From the Dirt, a tight collection of songs about love and loss and life on the road.

Morreale’s tender singing is put to good use as he crafts deeply personal songs that manage to contain happiness and regret, sadness and joy. A solid guitar player, Morreale creates an energetic sound supported by solid backup. Throughout the album, he manages to capture the lure of the open road and the loneliness that can come far from home.

Morreale is a great storyteller, and third track “Falling” is a wonderful song about figuring out one’s place in life, with an up-tempo beat and a refrain that’s easy to sing along to. Title track “From The Dirt” tells the story of several people struggling to get by but who still manage to keep their dignity intact. I particularly enjoyed track number eight, “The Road Years,” with its tales of setting out on the road at 13. This album is perfect for a nice long stretch of open road—or, for that matter, for any quiet moment when wanderlust strikes.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Someone once said that David's music sounds like “mellifluous blend of sawdust and King Syrup.”

At 16, David left home and spent ten years hitchhiking around Europe and playing his guitar in the London Underground and cities ranging from Athens to Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam.
In 1990, David came back to America, and has spent the last ten years touring and playing in some of the country’s most prestigious venues including Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, The Bottom Line in NYC, The Point in Bryn Mawr, PA, and Arlene Grocery, NYC as well as many colleges and festivals.
David was a Kerrville New Folk Finalist in 2005, and a recipient of a Maryland State Arts Council Award for Composition, an honour accorded to only 5 composers that year. David was a Finalist in the 2004 Plowshares Songwriting Contest also. He has shared stages with Bob Marley’s Wailers (post-Marley), Brooks Williams, Eliot Bronson, and others.
