Sections from TNT magazine article Sept 2000:
IT'S HARD to pigeonhole an artist whose songs range from heartfelt love songs to the true story of a woman who lost her index finger in the frenzy of a department store stocktake sale while in pursuit of a heavily discounted television.
"I guess I'd call it urban folk, or Ânew folk'," says Australian singer/ songwriter David Juriansz. "But it's all just songs, really. If someone can write good songs and play the guitar or the piano, then I don't care if it's considered folk, roots, or whatever, as long as it's enjoyable."
David, from Melbourne, first sang with the band The Mustard Seeds in Australia, and is a now performing as a solo artist. He's now based in London, having spent the past three years dividing his time between London, Australia and Canada, and is looking to establish a name for himself on the live scene. He recently took out a songwriting award at Victoria's Port Fairy Festival and his songs have been recorded by indigenous group Tiddas, with whom he has also toured. Now he's releasing his debut solo album, In This Flow, a collection of selfpenned numbers.
With songs that reflect his wry observations and his sardonic sense of humour, he has been compared to the likes of Billy Bragg, but David himself is not too keen on being quickly tagged with a firm label.
"I get sick of labels," he says. "My music doesn't sound what they call Âquintessentially Australian', I think probably because a lot of the songs were written in different countries, and I think that you tend to absorb the sounds of whatever place you're in when you're writing."And while he invariably gets called a folk singer, he says that the term can be misleading, especially with so many folk purists about.
Fans of intelligent songwriting will enjoy David's mix of social commentary and everyday observations.
"The songs on the album were written all over the place - there's a couple I wrote in Australia, a couple from London and America and Canada, and some of the songs have been with me for a while."
David Juriansz is a singer-songwriter quietly making tracks in the creatively fertile land that remained when the soul-less commercial pop freeway ripped through well-worn folk country. When Cat Stevens swapped guitar for Allah, was his raw folk-pop tinged soul was reborn in Juriansz?
In his live performances and on his album Âin this flow' Juriansz mixes his melodic, urban folk-pop with comic-strip satire making him one of the more entertaining and engaging artists on the singer-songwriter circuit.
A songwriting award-winner at the Port Fairy Festival he has written for well-loved Australian indigenous trio Tiddas in the past and is now emerging as a singer songwriter with his own distinctive style.
Known in London and his hometown Melbourne, Juriansz's music travels on the backroads taken by Neil Young, Louden Wainwright, a pre-conversion Cat Stevens and a pre-Labour Billy Bragg.
Fans of intelligent songwriting should enjoy his mix of social commentary and everyday observations. Juriansz portrays a unique blend of left green folk-pop.
