David M Western returns with a national tour in support of the stunning and reflective new album ‘On, On & On’ – out 20 Oct 2023 on Cheersquad Records & Tapes on vinyl and digital.
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. Having got his start as a musician hopping bars playing bass or guitar for bands in the thriving Melbourne folk-rock and country scene, David has now stepped into the spotlight leading his own band of world class Australian session musicians.
Building on his growing reputation from debut 2022 album titled ‘Child Mind’, Western observes through an even more incisive and soul-searching magnifying glass on his latest release, the vast, reflective and tender album ‘On, On & On.’. In the lead up to the release of ‘On, On & On’, David has played to packed rooms each week as part of his residency at the now cult-icon Melbourne pub ‘The Gem’, played to a sold out album launch show at The Old Bar, toured in support of Ella Hooper (Killing Heidi) and signed to Melbourne indie label ‘Cheersquad Records & Tapes’.
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.Supports: Special Guests Entry: $15+BF Oztix // $20 Door
