"The Audio Spot"

THIS CD ROCKS! The self titled debut Cd from David Powers is a rock masterpiece that reminds me of the songwriting days when rock songs had more than 2 chords and a guitar solo! This multi-talented artist played all the instruments and sang all the vocals in true solo artist/album fasion without letting the listener know that it isn’t a band. WOW! The songs are CATCHY, SOLID and FUN TO LISTEN TO with musical integrity and a sound that is new yet familiar. Davids vocals are passionate and creative with a Beatles-esque feel and only to be enhanced by his AMAZING GUITAR PLAYING! Put on top of that the drums, bass, keys, perc, engineering and producing this project, David has put it together in one hell of a 10 song package. Following in the footsteps of Prince, Phil Collins and Lenny Kravits, David’s solo effort has the songs to make him a name to watch now and for years to come.
Cd Trx I liked: “FEELING ALL RIGHT”, “LAY IT ON ME”, “BELIEVE”, “WASTING TIME”

"The Power of One Has The Power!"

David Powers engineered, produced, mixed, mastered, wrote, arranged, and performed every track on The Power Of One, and he did it all well. Add to that the cover art and design -- if Powers wants to blame anyone for anything done wrong, he has to look in the mirror to do so. The CD starts off well with the rocker "Feeling All Right" and the mid-tempo tune "Drive," and keeps going strong through the end. Certainly there are a couple of songs that seem a bit out of place, but overall the performance is consistent and enjoyable. Powers' lead guitar work is reminiscient of the big-haired maestros of the 1980s, and his vocals can measure up to those of Bret Michaels or Vince Neil. The best song on the CD is the fifth track, "Lay It On Me," an anthem-style rock song that could easily be included on a compilation with other anthems from the 1970s and 1980s. "Wasting Time" is an excellent track with acoustic verses, rocking choruses, and blazing solos. The CD gets better each time you listen to it. Powers displays a great deal of potential on The Power Of One, and we can only hope for more from him in the future. - indie rock .com
