"WHITE NOISE" EP
17/01/07 - This Week's UK indiestore.com Picks: WHITE NOISE DAVID SNEDDON
"... he's a considerable talent who deserves a fairer hearing. With his rich Scots burr much in evidence, this is that fair hearing. Listen up." 17th Jan 2007 Indie Store
Offers a timeless authentic sound. David's music portrays wide-ranging moods with his pure sensual vocals in strong contrast to his hard hitting ‘positive notes’ piano. His voice is one moment melancholy and then tender, evocative and then forceful, led by his strong dynamic piano playing. It brings a subtle blend of sensitive melody and rhythmic moods. David has gone for the acoustic impact of a ‘one live take.’ All five tracks are stand outs, in particular the energetic moving melody of 'One Old Soul'. Also includes the heartfelt piano track Wish You Well, the joyous Time, the optimism of White Noise, and the romantic Lady Lullaby. Engaging and absorbing.
'I think your music is wonderful, and you're such a genuine kind of a singer...your own style, and a wonderful hint of a brogue that just adds to the flavour. So good to hear something that hasn't been chopped up and processed to blandness these days! Keep it up!' Patricia Hammond Opera singer
'you lay yourself right out there in your songs. and then you double it by singing with the same quality. this is a great tune. sincerity is your trademark. perhaps that is the essence why i like your music .' Janice Kephart poet
The strengths of David’s set are the quality of the songs and that magic something in David’s voice. He is performing on energetic, accomplished set.
‘His set was far too short, and I felt he has something new in his songs, which are sensitive and sincere. He is in a different league to most singer songwriters that I hear, who simply don’t touch me in my heart that way.’Jazz Bar
6/9/07 - Excellent Review of the Jazz Bar gigs in Edinburgh Guide
……until he gets behind his piano and then the serious performer takes over. He puts his heart and soul into his music. He clearly enjoys performing. …
The audience last night was quick to pick up on this and an immediate rapport was established. As he said, music has been good to him. By forsaking the bubblegum world of pop offered to him through his success in 'Fame Academy' and allowing his depth to show, David Sneddon has in turn been good for music.
*DAVID SNEDDON GIG REVIEWS*
BRISTOL - David Sneddon who, accompanying himself on piano with David Mullins providing additional guitar and vocal accompaniment, was next up. The one-time chart topper said: "I'm a songwriter and I write pop songs for other people." If so, he has been holding back some of the best stuff for himself, for there was nothing cheesy about the strong and well-crafted songs like Time and Insomnia. Bristol Evening Times Dec 2007
HIGHBARN ' It was standing room only at High Barn in Great Bardfield as David Sneddon. ..played a 90-minute "This is an amazing venue.. I would rather play here than Wembley. " The performance was stripped down with only two musicians on stage: Sound engineer - "The crowd loved him. He's a very talented performer and he played a great set that obviously went down well with the audience." Dunmow Dec 2006
ORAN MOR - 'The Scots Fame Academy winner proved his talent with this acoustic show. Accompanied on guitar by John Kielty - his co-songwriter when he was in The Martians - David belted through original songs from his almost-completed album. The highlight was beautiful ballad 'Insomnia'. The only reference to his past chart success was a version of his No 1 hit Stop Living The Lie mixed with Del Amitris Nothing Ever Happens. (5 stars) SUNDAY MAIL July 2006
REVIEWS of 'Seven Years Ten Weeks' released April 2003
He has had some significant chart success, new songs seem to be flowing out of him at an alarmingly prolific rate and he's possibly the nicest, most charming and down to earth man in the music business. WESTERN MAIL
There's no doubt David Sneddon does possess music talent, coupled with some real star quality.
His voice was head and shoulders above the rest and he's also a fine piano player. Sunday Mail
Sneddon is a performer with honesty, integrity and a fair degree of soul... with infectious piano melodies and an attractively low-key falsetto. Review by Andrew Lynch. Entertainment.com
I was right the first time-these songs are class! I listened with real excitement to my favourites and got excited when I discovered I liked one or two of the other tracks a lot more than I thought I did.
There are actually some moments of genius here. The exquisite Lazy is an absolute corker and has classic written all over it - this album is difficult to fault. Snedders has presented us with well-produced songs that are sure to be classics Yahoo
This is a strong album which has some haunting tracks like 'Lazy' that evoke late 90s indie
This is a one man band, a talent hotspot Teen Music
I've always thought All My Life, Time to Fall Down, Lazy and OK were brilliant songs - beautiful tunes with great lyrics. What I realise all over again, is that every song on the album has something special'
I will always remember talking to the man behind us, who was a staunch Elton John fan, he was very impressed with David and we all told him to buy "SYTW" (well Leeza - did really) The ladies behind us enquiring who we were and all about David Sneddon. Gave us tremendous pride a fan
2003 David worked with Elton's band for his album - 'these guys are legends!'
'The songs were pretty damn inspiring. I strongly recommend you add it to your collection' , Elton's drummer
