"Most likely to: Be assured of a golden future." See link for entire article. - The Guardian


"...the only thing stopping David Ward from becoming a household name is the injustice of the music industry." See link for entire article. - Drowned in Sound


His new single marks the emergence of a very special artist indeed. - Q Magazine


"Ward…render(s) a piece of music that hints towards a timelessness lacking in many of his peers…Golden Future Time is a bravely ambitious recording by a gifted songwriter and, despite having clear markers in the 70s’, 80s’ and 90s’, one that seems both out of time and entirely without time; as though it’s all those decades at once—or just a memory of them." See link for entire article. - Songwriting Magazine


Anyone who melds the tenor of Stevie Wonder into the falsetto of Jeff Buckley and the yips of Michael Jackson (the results of which are tethered to waves of psychedelia) is either genius or Gubu…On paper there’s no way it should work; listening to it a few times in a row, however, it works like a dream. - Irish Times


Golden Future Time is the kind of sprawling album that will stop you in your tracks. - DIY


Exploratory, ever-evolving songcraft, his is a beautiful, very solitary universe. - Clash


À la façon d’une poupée russe que l’on ouvrirait pour découvrir une poupée encore plus belle que la précédente, Golden Future Time se révèle lumineux et unique. Au final, on se retrouve, une fois ces sept poupées dévoilées, avec un diamant brut d’une grande valeur. - BRBR


David Ward stays impressively eccentric on Golden Future Time. If one thing remains constant, it’s that the dude can totally sing… - Georgia Straight

Bio

Vancouver's David Ward is garnering accolades on both sides of the pond for his latest release, Golden Future Time.

"...marks the emergence of a very special artist indeed." Q

"David Ward stay impressively eccentric on Golden Future Time. If one thing remains constant, it's that the dude can totally sing..." Georgia Straight

"Most likely to: Be assured of a golden future." The Guardian

Released March 2014 and supported by tours in both Canada and the UK, momentum continues to build for Ward who recently returned to the Vancouver Jazz Festival and also debuted at Victoria and Kaslo Jazz Festivals, closing down celebrations for both.

Golden Future Time follows 2012's celebrated EP trilogy, The Arrival. It's a textured brew of the cosmic and earth; a sonic exploration of the muse combining electronica, R&B, art-rock, disco and cabaret.

The album garnered rotation on CBC Radio 3 and brought Ward a host of live performance slots and airplay on college radio across Canada.

"Exploratory, ever-evolving songcraft, his is a beautiful, very solitary universe." Clash

Rooted in a respect and knowledge of what has come before, Ward looks to the future with artistry and daring.
