@isaria

"This is a gorgeous composition ... I love those suspended chords and the flute!"

@zipporah

"Absolutely gorgeous – from the wonderfully unexpected surprise of you playing flute to Esther's sweet harmonies, I loved every moment. I know the nearly indescribable emotion of which you sing; some call it saudade. Hard to find words for, yet such a deeply human experience."

@krystle

"You are killing it with that flute my friend, it just adds something rather spectacular to your compositions - adding these higher notes coupled with the lower tones of the guitar, just create this intensely powerful sound.

Ohhh my god those harmonies are just fantastic, seriously I can't get over these original compositions - they are bloody fantastic, you just have the most warm and soothing tone to your voices.

It's hard to find the words each week, I don't want to seem like I'm saying the same thing again and again - but when something like this works and works so bloody well, it's impossible not to find myself repeating the same phrases.

But I have to assure you, it's not from a lack of inspiration - you have created such an amazing sound here, it's so gentle, flowing and relaxing. I just couldn't get enough of it, really incredible work again this week <3"

@isaria

"Such a beautiful melody and a lovely, expressive, and ethereal performance."

@zipporah

"Such an beautifully evocative piece, evoking so much visceral imagery; slow-motion running through a forest, dappled sunlight on smiling face, framed by strands of hair in the wind – the perfect soundtrack for a victorious moment – the final scene in a heroine's journey."

@isaria

"Awesome harmonics, percussive taps, and fretboard technique ... beautiful composition!"

@zipporah

"Stunning composition, as always. I so appreciate your elegant, percussive style. :) The cameo of woman and dog behind you halfway through the video made me laugh – nice reminder that life keeps moving around us, even during our quietest, most introspective moments."

@krystle

"It honestly feels impossible lately not to include your amazing compositions in my top 5's, but when you create a masterpiece like this it's pretty easy to see why. You are an amazing composer and performer, it really is phenomenal to behold your next level compositions.

Every time I hear an entry from you I know to expect great things, but you've really just been able to take me on these fabulous journeys - it's impossible not to close your eyes and just be swept away.

Now I have to say the tempo change was so unexpected and that is another thing I love about your music, it is never predictable - I never know where something is going, I just like being taken along for the ride!

Really outstanding as usual David, I am such a fan of your work and couldn't have enjoyed that little auditory journey more than I did - absolutely fantastic!"
