CD REVIEW 

 

The Artist I recently checked out the latest CD from singer/songwriter David Silva entitled Moorpark Oasis. Turns out there is an interesting story behind the actual title. Silva left his home many moons ago & headed west like many Americans over the decades - to peruse a dream. He ended up in a place called Moorpark Oasis. 

 

The band Standard 4 piece line-up which includes Silva on guitar & vocals, Scott Rodell, & Bradley Jon Sanders as session players. I would say the band possesses above average to advanced rockabilly, folk & country paying abilities. You will find many impressive guitar licks along the way. Timing is spot on within the rockabilly, folk, R&B  grooves. Silva can hold his own on the guitar & vocals, but more importantly Silva is a gifted storyteller with those 2 instruments. Vocals from Silva are executed perfectly, & in many ways the strongpoint part of the production. The music possesses a Bluesy, Rockabilly, Folk-ish type stigma. All in all great music to eat a Sunday morning brunch to. Definitely classic Americana feel that that is timeless & very emotional Music will remind you of classic John Prine with a touch of Jimmy Buffet & even Hank Williams. The songs Simply put - all songs are incredible. Thereís nothing like a solid musical production to get wrapped around Ė & this is one of them. I kept waiting for a weak song to come down the pike - I eventually gave up on that. The vibe Overall very upbeat, positive, with amazing stories that possess incredible highs & lows. The CD has itís shares of happy & sad moments. Simply put  - very much like life itself this CD personifies life experience, with music that are 100% honest & pure . The production is professional grade from start to finish. There's not many songs you can listen to time & time again. Has a timeless feel to it. which is not an easy thing to achieve.  Overall this CD is very marketable. The good Honorable mentions go out to the gifted songwriting & storytelling abilities of David Silva. This is the guy I would enjoy sitting next to on a long flight. For the record this CD will not go in the stack of other CDís Iíve reviewed, instead itís going in my truck. When I got done listening to this CD I wanted to listen to it all over again. Folks out there who enjoy Americana, Country, Blues, Folk & Even Rock that sounds in the vein of John Prine will fall head over heals with this CD. The bad Nothing to report. The ugly Itís ugly - how good this music is. 

 

The verdict Moorpark Oasis by David Silva has everything: good playing, fancy picking, amazing songs, heart felt vocals, & music that covers all the bases Ė Country, R&B, Folk, Americana & Even Rock. All in all Moorpark Oasis  has no weaknesses. The Bottom Line WARNING - If you listen to this CD Ė you run the risk falling in love with the music of David SIlva.
