Erased Tapes’ David Allred shares title track ‘The Cell’
From new record The Cell, out June 14th
Following on from last year’s acclaimed debut with Erased Tapes The Transition —named #17 album of the year byThe Sunday Times — Californian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist David Allred returns with The Cell, a mini album set for release on June 14th. Today the musician shares the title track from the new record, his distinctive vocal soars across an understated and hushed piano on The Cell.
Meant as a companion piece to The Transition, The Cell picks up where The Transition left off, with David continuing the search to find his place in the world. “The Cell is about warmly acknowledging the darkness in our individual lives as a strategic method of gaining a deeper understanding of how to move forward in a vastly dissonant world with optimism, harmony and light.”
Hailing from Loomis, a small town outside of Sacramento, via Portland, Oregon – David worked as a sound engineer and session musician, featuring on multiple recordings by the likes of Birger Olsen, Brigid Mae Power, Brumes, The Beacon Sound Choir, Chantal Acda, Heather Woods Broderick, Jung Body, Masayoshi Fujita, and many more. He quickly found himself touring Europe with Peter Broderick, culminating in a Royal Festival Hall performance, and contributing the arresting voice and double bass piece Ahoy to the Erased Tapes 10th anniversary box set 1+1=X.
David will return to Europe with more dates to be announced soon.
