New David Blog!

It’s been a while since we’ve had one of these (and who else is impressed that David is a fan of the great vocalist Ella Fitzgerald?):

Helloo to everyone from Nashville. It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog, so I thought it’d be a good week to write one.

I’ve had a really great past couple of weeks! I’ve been on the first leg of a radio promo tour, and it’s been great visiting all the different radio stations and getting to perform again! I started in Greenville, South Carolina for B93.7’s Zoo-A-Palooza to help raise money for the local Greenville Zoo there. I then went to Louisville, Kentucky where I got to do a show for WDJX with other performers like We The Kings, Hot Chelle Rae, Iyaz, and Kris Allen as the host. It was really fun hanging with everyone there. We then made stops at 106.3 in Lexington, Q102 in Cincinnati, WNCI in Columbus, and Q102 in Philly. It’s fun getting to go to all of the different radio stations! We also went to PRO FM in Rhode Island, which is always great going over to see them! After that we went to Sixflags New England for a show with KC 101 where Auburn, Boys Like Girls, Flo Rida, and Bruno Mars performed at too. I must admit that I’m a pretty big fan of Bruno Mars’s stuff. He has an awesome voice. I’m sure you guys know his new song Just the Way You Are, but if you haven’t then you should really check it out.

After all the radio promo, it was time to go to New York for Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day where Shontelle, Allstar Weekend, Demi Lovato, and Jonas Brothers also performed. It was really fun. It was cool meeting Allstar Weekend and hanging with them, and then seeing Shontelle and Demi again. I didn’t really get to say much to the Jonas Brothers, but I did catch a bit of their soundcheck. It was cool getting to sing “Something ‘Bout Love” for the first time live.. period.. lol, then also first time live on TV both acoustically on Good Day NY and then with the energy of the band on AAKD. Hope you guys have been enjoying the performances! It’s also been fun getting to introduce another new song from the album called “Elevator” that I first sang in Greenville. It’s one of my favorite songs on the album and I feel is a good representation of what else you’ll be getting from the album :). More of the David vibe haha.

So… we’ve been getting things wrapped up with the album The Other Side of Down!! It’s been pretty crazy trying to get everything finalized but we’re pretty much finished and have done all we can under the amount of time that there was to work with haha. I’m really excited! We’re a little over a month away from it coming out October 5th, and I’m already starting to feel the anxious and the jitters. I really hope all the work this last year pays off though for all of you! Anyway I am going to end for today, and talk to you guys later!

Songs for the day: Just the Way You Are – Bruno Mars

Misty – Ella Fitzgerald

This song has really been growing on me lately for some reason. Ella is incredible.

  1. I am very impressed that David is a fan of Ella Fitzgerald!

  3. I’m glad David decided to write a blog because I enjoy rereading them during quiet spells. Yesterday was a stressful day for me but per David’s recommendation, I listened to Ella’s “Misty” and it really helped me to relax. I was reading Gladys’ post in the previous thread and I suspect that this appreciation for Ella Fitzgerald may be another example of his dad’s influence.

      wow, that was NICE- and good publicity. Also made me tad emo. Thanks for posting.

    • oh man…isn’t he great. I just love the way he speaks. So soft and so thankful for his fans. He’s just awesome.

      Can’t wait to see him in Nashville day after tomorrow! EEK!! 🙂

      • Enjoy, debra! Let us know how it went!

      • i’m not sure if this is common knowledge but “the voice” keeps a list of people attending the upcoming shows. it’s on the left side bar of their website and several are listed for nashville. have fun!

  4. So, SBL got one radio add today. That’s it. One. Feeling “the other side of up” right now. The only thing that will make me feel better is Jive giving me a track list AND song snippets on Thursday. lol

    In the meantime, *goes back to read the brilliant “Promoting Music or Supporting Talent” post*

    • We can’t do anything about it, it’s Jive’s job. It’s why I don’t worry anymore, I’m just going to wait for the new music and enjoy it,
      David worked hard for this album, his team needs to adjust and do its job. There’s still hope for SBL !
      (and Jive will give us a new pic on Thursday lol)

  5. David answering questions on what he notices FIRST about a girl. I like his reply much – Lucky girl whoever that is.

    • thanks for posting this. so now we know, the eyes are the window to the soul. i’ll remember that everytime i look at the sbl single cover. 🙂

      • You are welcome dr. Whenever I look at his eyes in the photos from now on I will think of what he said :).

    • raelovingangels

      For an off the cuff answer- that was kinda amazing. I was a whole lot older than David when I started noticing the energy or vibe people give off.

      • Me too rae. For me it was all physical appearance . I am quite tall so for me the guy must be taller than me :). I suppose now we know why he is still searching for the right girl. It is rare to have teenage girls giving off good vibes nowadays imho.

  6. Love this blog! David has great music taste. Bruno Mars is my 2nd fave artist after David! I love how he listed just the way you are as something to listen to. That’s an amazing song from a talented guy. I hope David covers it one day or maybe not cuz I’d die if I heard it live! Aww that video about David talking about what he firsts notices in a girl is so cute. That’s what
    I notice about him. His eyes are so beautiful, warm, gentle, kind yet full of fire. Whoever his first gf will be is one lucky girl.

    • i’ve learned about so many new artists thru david. right now, i’m a huge fan of “the script”; he recommended them over a year ago.
