David Poe — God & the Girl (August 5, 2014)

USA Flag            David Poe — God & the Girl 
ΠΠ   Název alba odkazuje na obsah písní. Polovina se týká víry, polovina lásky, nebo nedostatek jednoho či druhého.
Jeho melodie a práce akustické kytary jsou tak jemné a elegantní, že hloubka, do které jeho slova míří do srdce, jsou překvapením. Nejzajímavější je děsivá zdrženlivost jeho zpěvu. Stejně jako u těch velkých depressives (Nick Drake a Elliott Smith), málokdy zvedne hlas nad úroveň ukolébavky. Je to skoro, jako by se bál — vášeň, bolest a nejistota, obsažené v jeho písních, by mohly explodovat v místnosti jako špinavé bomby, pokud by hrál příliš hlasitě.
ΠΠ   “Mým úkolem je získat dřevo a rozdělat oheň. Někdy si připadám jako v poušti a třu pazourek s ocelí, dokud nevznikne jiskra. Někdy se objeví hořící keř. Cílem je přispět k vytvoření něčeho, co umělec bude zpívat po zbytek své kariéry, počínaje zvukem, lyrikou a melodií. Existuje mnoho faktorů, které při tvorbě dělají hit, a některé z nich — marketing, podplácení, politika hudebního byznysu — nemají nic společného s uměním. Odpovědností skladatele je, aby krásnou věc — jednoduchou, hlubokou — pozvedl a rozšířil spíše, než předváděl bůhvíjakou kulturu. Pilobolus, choreograf a skladatel Robby Barnett říká: „Myšlenka je ten nejlepší nápad, dokud tam není nějaká lepší”, což je dobrý přístup k jakékoliv spolupráci.”
Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and raised in Dayton, Ohio.

REVIEW
By Kerry Doole | Aug 12 2014 | Score: 9
Π♦Π  Though sadly under–appreciated here, L.A.–based singer/songwriter David Poe has a seriously impressive resume that includes creating scores for film and dance (Shadowland: Music for Pilobolus was an international success) and having his songs covered by artists as diverse as T–Bone Burnett, Grace Potter, Duncan Sheik, Daryl Hall and Curtis Stigers. It is on his own solo albums that his poetic talent best shines through, and God & The Girl is his best yet. God and the Devil make a few appearances here, but, as in much of Poe's oeuvre, the girl gets the most attention.
Π♦Π  Love, lust and loss remain fertile lyrical terrain, and few plough those fields with as much skill as Poe. Or as much candour, as on  “Lonely Like Me.” Sample lyrics:  “First I loved your beauty, then I loved your brain, then you went insane, I fell in love anyway.” His understated voice drips with melancholy, the mood most often exuded by his material. Obvious kindred spirits are the likes of Nick Drake and Elliott Smith, while the folk–blues feel of  “The Devil brings Townes Van Zandt to mind while also showcasing Poe’s fluent guitar work. His voice and lyrics are neatly embellished by subtle musical touches and the judicious use of cello, violin, French horn, trumpet and lap steel to add atmosphere (guest players include some of Burnett’s regular team). The gentle meditation on death, “When I Fly,” is a lovely highlight, but there are no misses on this consistently compelling record.

LYRICS
THESE ARE THE DAYS
© 2014 BY David Poe. Charming Martyr Music (BMI).
From the album God & The Girl
RAISE A GLASS TO THE PAST AND TO THE SOLDIERS
TO FADED FRIENDS AND HAPPY ENDS AND TO THE OLD
MAY WE ALL LIVE AS LONG AS WE LIKE
MAY WE ALL BE AS STRONG AS THE WINE
REMEMBER THIS: BEFORE WE KISSED WE WERE STRANGERS
TOOK A CHANCE ON A DANCE IN THE QUIET
FIRST THE DARK THEN THE SPARK THEN THE FIRE
FIRST THE SKY THEN THE STARS THEN THE LIGHT
THESE ARE THE DAYS
THESE ARE THE DAYS WHEN THEY GROW UP FAST
THESE ARE THE NIGHTS
THESE ARE THE NIGHTS YOU MAKE IT LAST
TIME IS A TRAIN, WAITS FOR NO ONE
TIME IS A CHILD RUNNING WILD
TIME IS A BIRD ON THE WING
FLYING HOME TO THE SUN IN THE SPRING
REMEMBER THIS: BEFORE WE KISSED WE WERE STRANGERS
TOOK A CHANCE ON A DANCE IN THE QUIET
FIRST THE DARK THEN THE SPARK THEN THE FIRE
FIRST THE SKY THEN THE STARS THEN THE LIGHT
THESE ARE THE DAYS
THESE ARE THE DAYS WHEN THEY GROW UP FAST
THESE ARE THE NIGHTS
THESE ARE THE NIGHTS YOU MAKE IT LAST
THESE ARE THE DAYS
THESE ARE THE DAYS WHEN THEY GROW UP FAST
THESE ARE THE NIGHTS
THESE ARE THE NIGHTS YOU MAKE IT LAST
RAISE A GLASS TO THE PAST AND TO THE SOLDIERS
TO FADED FRIENDS AND HAPPY ENDS AND TO THE OLD
MAY WE ALL LIVE AS LONG AS WE LIKE
MAY WE ALL BE AS STRONG AS THE WINE
