The most recent Saturday I had the opportunity to play and hang with a bunch of Chicago kindie musicians. Well at the gig I got a copy of Mr. Dave’s recent solo effort not specifically directed at kids and families (we swapped CD’s). The name of the CD is Crow and Raven and the song I really like is Waiting So Long. It’s a easy going, laid back love song he wrote to his wife. How do I know this. There’s a video. (See video here: Waiting So Long) The thing about the video is he shot most of it ON HIS WEDDING DAY! Seriously? I know my wife loves me but I don’t know if I would of thrown the “Hey Honey! Is it OK if we shoot a music video during the wedding?” But his wife agreed (she looks great!). The genius of the video is the genuine feel it gives of two folks in love. Lyrically speaking of Waiting So Long for the ONE it’s the perfect visual foil for the song (Kudos to Robert Conaway for his camerawork and editing). That combined with a catchy bass, subtle guitar riffs, simple percussion and some really great harmonies the sound becomes greater than it’s components. Which is always very cool. This is a song you should hear, see and then tell your friends about. I know I am. Go support your local independent musician today and buy a copy. Visit the link below.
