David Arn’s New Acoustic Vibe “Watershed” Just Released

The long awaited follow-up album to David Arn‘s “Traveler Tales” is finally here. A mix of soft acoustic songs written and recorded during the pandemic, this is music about separation and isolation amid confusing emotions of the time.

The title song “Watershed” is the exception which deals with a soldier’s PTSD, Anguish and Hope. “This is a song written for a friend” Arn said. “If you are of a certain age in this country you have seen war and most likely know those for whom the war never really ended.”

The accompanying dramatic music video is now available on Arn’s YouTube channel.

Arn plays piano, keyboard and rhythm guitar accompanied by lead guitar from Nicky V. Hines, dobro and lead guitar, from Toby Wilson, bass Issar Shulman. Backing vocals are expertly rendered by Tyra Juliette and new London artist, Daisy. Wilson arranged many of the songs.

All songs are composed by Arn with the exception of “We Seemed a Good Idea” which was co-written with J.F. Sobecki.

The album would make an impressive addition to any Soft Rock and Adult Contemporary playlist.

She manages to make this rather captivating world one that feels doubly refreshing. Everything about her delivery adds to the inherent beauty of the piece. Rhythms go for a looseness ensuring that every single detail gets accentuated with percussion that works on an emotional level. Best of all the riffs have a dreamy disposition for there is this sense of pure longing that defines the work.

She holds nothing back and right from the beginning it has its own sense of purpose. A groove has an unsteadiness to it, perfectly embodying what a lot of tequila might do to a person. This, on top of the lustful glances that she brings into the fray, further adds to the romantic quality of the work. Volume adds to this for the piece virtually works itself into an outright crescendo. Many different parts of the group makes sure to intermingle creating this vast expanse of territory, the kind of thing that feels quite potent. For the final stretch of the mix the song seemingly tapers off, allowing for a gradual letdown of that kinetic energy, with her voice continuing to lead the way all until the very final moments.
