Dave, this is an absolutely beautiful song. I love the interplay between the cello and other acoustic instruments, the melody.... I think this is great the way it is and you should put this on an album. Good luck!
Your other music is beautiful as well. Listening to "Carve Me" on your Facebook page.

Well everybody beat me to the punch by telling you how great you are on this one, but I'm gonna say it anyway, GREAT STUFF ! Your vocals and music sound wonderful and I'm jealous of your SUPER DUPER lyrics !!
Dave, I am certain that there will be a time in the not too distant future when your career has taken off that I will be telling my friends "Dave's a good friend of mine and I used to give him advice when he was just starting out".
So here is my advice to you: "Keep it up you are great!"
I love this and love this direction. Beautiful recording. What a great sound. Tom
Hi guys, I can only say a HUGE thanks for checking out the track and your input means a lot. I've tried to go through and check out all your songs but couldn't find a few so please post them in my inbox or direct me to them!

I'm back, just watching the video! Wow you are so young to be so talented; you will surely have a great career in music. I can't tell you how impressed I am. I shared Suffer no More on my facebook wall
Dave, You got to tell me how you got that sound in a live accoustic performance??? Did you over dub things? No mic for the cello, guitar and mandolyn? One vocal mic? How did you do that? It sounds so clean. Tom
Dave...Nice song,reminded me of Nick Drake,but with the combination of instruments you have their,their is no reason why you can't create a new "unique" sound of your own.I'm not really into the folk scene,but listening to this track,and the instruments involved,i could hear a "new " sound swirling around in there,add percussion for a bit of thump here and there,write some "upbeat" numbers as well,and iam sure you could come up with a winning formula,being different from the rest of the pack is what it is all about,that is what will get you noticed.Hey an English version of "The Pogues"..but with your own identity and sound,....Good Luck...Terry..
Absolutely stunning, great writing, great musicianship, great and simple production. That's music. Love it.
One suggestion I do have to make, it's not a critique, as such - more like if there was a wishlist I'd put this on it: Upright bass and fiddle, pleeeeeease! That would just be the icing on a very sweet cake, as it is...
AWESOME SONG! Can't say enough about how much I like this one. Have watched the video at least 5 times. This is not typically my style of music but a good song is a good song and you guys delivered it extremely well. I have not yet listened to your other songs but I will get around to it soon for sure.
Really do not know who would not like this song. Should be on the radio or out there somewhere for sure.
