Memories of Family
Curiously, watching this ABC News Radio interview with David is the first time my heart really goes out to him as he’s dealing with his parents’ divorce.
How many times did David say the word “memories”? I forgot to count. However, the fact that Christmas for him means memories of family and of home definitely adds a new layer of the heartfelt depth he brings to each song. Something of a bittersweet narrative (beneath the rosy smile). Oh David! If I could give you a hug right now, I would! (Of course, what wouldn’t I give to have you show up on my doorstep Christmas morn carolling!)
On another note, it’s amazing how completely 180 David sounds once the interview questions turn to music itself. No stuttering and struggling to express himself. Nope. David is completely articulate as he rambles on about songwriting and music production.
