Songs from TIME FORGETS have been included on a variety of "Best-Of" MP3 compilations (CD Baby,, benefit compilations (MUSE: Musicians United to Sustain the Environment, CHC: Alive in San Gregorio) and movie soundtracks (I Want To Blow Up Silicon Valley). In Sept. 2000 David toured Scotland with the Peninsula Scottish Fiddlers playing traditional Scottish tunes, American and Cajun songs as well as his original music.

'Time Forgets' is a carefully constructed collage of sound and images which ranges from quiet whispery odes to more richly orchestrated messages. Tracks include acoustic guitar, vocals, harmonica, dobro, mandolin, 12-string, electric guitar, piano, bass and percussion.

If you are looking for material that leaves you with something to think about and bears repeated listening, listen to 'Time Forgets'.

Here's what some others said about this CD:

"David Elias, in case you haven't had the pleasure of listening to his music, is a folk musician/singer/songwriter in the tradition of Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and John Prine. The Title song, 'Time Forgets', and the third track 'Field of Wood', could very easily be mistaken for Prine. David's vocals have that warm, earthy feel that made John Prine a folk cult hero in the 1970's; and like Prine, his lyrics paint stories of a simpler life." -- Fred Wheeler, Indie Journal

"Dylan-esque (Bob, not Jakob) vocals with soft gentle acoustic guitar backing. Simultaneously somber and soothing, exquisitely enchanting -- a beautiful collection of songs! From 'Time Forgets': "And time forgets. It doesn't heal, it just forgets." -- Raging Smolder Music Review

"I can't think of another artist that plays and writes in this kind of style. A soothing gentle folk song. I love it. It's quite different from the other song (Freedom on the Freeway) posted here by the same artist, but both have a common uniqueness that this artist seems to own. Both are very cleverly worded and both are pleasing to the soul. Keep up the good work and please post more songs." -- posted by an anonymous listener as a Rolling Stone MP3 review.

The newest release is a historical piece of work called "The Window". This Super Audio CD (SACD) was the first indie (unsigned) artist release as a hybrid multichannel SACD recording. It is a killer acoustic band recorded live in a killer studio in the ultra-high Sony DSD format. A stereo mix plays on any CD player. The surround sound (multichannel) mix plays on SACD systems setup for 5.1 surround sound. Either way, critics have raved about this one and you will probably like it too...
