I’ve seen Roots songwriter David Storey perform his songs that contain profound messages and poignant depths on several occasions now, since he began regularly coming out to my former open stage, for which he also did a very impressive feature a couple of months ago. He was participating partly as a way of leading up to release of new ep of originals, ‘movin on’, which has powerful material among its five tunes, especially the song I’ve raved about before: “greatest”.
Although David’s 8:30-11 show tonight at Free Times Café (320 College St. just east of Augusta) isn’t an album release per se, it’s significant because it’s his first ever headlining gig —and in a room renowned for being one where a lot of superb talents first appeared. It’s also a good chance for you to pick up this slim disc for just $5, while also enjoying his artistic takes on other songwriters of substance.
