Latest album - On On & On - Stream (pre release)
A depth and a quiet pull is found in the music of David M Western. Even his hell-storm, stadium-filling country-rock numbers can deliver a gut punch you never saw coming. Moments of reflection, cutting witicism and strange comically driven anecdotes will be thrown at you from every direction. David M Western will be simultaneously driving you while keeping you calm from the passenger seat.
Written and recorded within roughly three months, recorded almost entirely live and with minimal overdubbing, ‘On, On & On’ will floor listeners, enjoying at first the quality of songwriting and excitement within the songs, yet returning for the emotional connection they will find within the lyrics.
“David is one of my favourite Australian musicians. He is a sharp, unique songwriter, a beautiful guitarist and a real musician’s musician. I always look forward to David’s releases for songwriting inspiration.” – Julia Jacklin
“Country Victoria has spawned a gifted singer-songwriter in the form of David M. Western. His indie-folk-rock exhibits charmed musicianship, and he has an uncanny ability to write songs which make you pay attention to what he has to say.” – The Au Review
A pure drop of minimalist and down-to-earth indie folk at its best. - Happy Magazine
David Western’s songs draw you in so close you feel like you are sitting next to him. Honest and preceptive, a true songwriter on the rise, well worthy of a repeated listen. – Henry Wagons, Double J
