Remember the first time that you fell in love? The quickening of your pulse, your heart flutters, and the calm you can't explain? The uncertainty of it all - will it last? Will it leave? Can you even trust that it's real? You don't even know it yet but your heart has already listened to “Angel Music Lover”, apparently.
“Angel Music Lover “ is a timeless piece of incandescent music, a blend of too many genres to even try to explain to you, the listener, because it was meant for the ears and not for my words. You will have to stop reading, start caring, definitely start feeling, and let the rhythm take you away. But while we wait for your obvious decision in this Information Age to make the leap to Act 1 of the greatest story never told, how about a little background on the musical you won't be able to stop telling your friends about? Unless, of course, you're ready to just play the song and let the sounds take you away.
Once upon a time two kids had a dream to make it big in music, we've all been there. Who among us hasn't either been in a band during high school or pretended it one day out back in the parking lot with our friends’ music blaring? David Simmons and Andy Camp didn't just think it though, they tried to live it. The dream died, lost to the moment, forgotten about, and put away. Thankfully, however, anything written and not destroyed is never truly gone and recently old friends reunited, a former collaborator guitarist named Esa Lehti hopped on board, and a goldmine of Sixties poetry finally left the station. What we all received was a screenplay likely worth its weight in gold - Finding David. A tale of love lasting forever and the anxiety felt that it won't. Just like the fear of shooting for the sky and knowing you might come back down.
The best way to introduce a musical is to let a promo video out into the world and that's exactly what the writers have done. “Angel Music Lover” hits on the notes of the power of love - asking if a flame can really burn blue for twenty years. None ever has for me, but the hope still lives. Love however resists the temptations of ego and regret and maybe, just maybe, any love is a worthwhile enough effort to expend the energy trying to get to that place of forever. We'll leave that up to the listener. The singers aren't even sure if you love them or the music. Simply let the melody tell the story while the words set the scene. A love that never stops, only slows to a trickle, but still continues to grow. Who wouldn't spend twenty years to understand something that true and real? And what person doesn't want to be loved that deeply that someone believes they're an impossible task? Feel all, let the regrets be taken away, and prepare for a musical like you've never heard before with David Simmons’ Finding David.
