9 MP3 Songs
FOLK: Modern Folk, COUNTRY: Country Folk
From outback desert uranium mine geologist to drummer for Australian folk popsters The Waifs touring with Bob Dylan, David Ross Macdonaldâs poetic eye for the human spirit coupled with his sublime fingerstyle guitar playing is an artist whoâs music emotionally evokes and inspires.
The July 2006 release âKnuckled Brass and Boneâ is his 3rd and most humanist work to date.
These 9 tracks effortlessly navigate the listener through simple emotional narratives and into uncharted waters deep in social comment and darker contemplations all the while beguiling the listener with his hypnotic fingerstyle guitar playing.
His poignant arrangement of the unofficial Australian national anthem âWaltzing Matildaâ, the ode to his grandfathers walking stick âOld Joeâs Caneâ or the bittersweet âTil Iâm Goneâ never fail to touch and soothe the listeners being.
Not one to take himself too seriously here, âShoulders Brownâ is a lost love lament with a wry last line twist while politically the closing track âWho Have A Dreamâ is a stark narrative on poverty inspired by his worldly travels but whoâs coda optimistically drifts into a Latin / Creole
What Folks Say !
American Songwriter Magazine
â Macdonald is one of those few songwriters like Nick Drake, Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes) and Josh Ritter that can captivate his listeners armed only with a voice and guitar.â
Acoustic Guitar Magazine quotes â ..a further revelation .. MacDonald's vocals, lyrics, and intricate fingerstyle guitar playing bring to mind a collaboration between Nick Drake and a mid-1970s Bruce Cockburn... evocative songs with a haunting, poignant quality.â
Sing Out Magazine puts it bluntly, âA pretty damn good guitarist!â
