For immediate release 30/06/2008
Silver Mile Records, based in Aberdeen, Scotland would like to announce that it will be releasing the debut Cd, 14 track album, “From My Pen”, SMR 003, featuring the work of singer/songwriter David Brinkman, on Tuesday, 1st July, 2008, and it will be sold in various retail outlets around Scotland, and online.
Local artist Dod Dow, pictured with David in the Aberdeen HMV store, has produced a new original painting of the clipper Thermopylae, designed and built in Aberdeen, to help promote the song “A Tall Ship” which tells the story of a homesick Scotsman working his passage home, and his feelings about his people and his country.
Niall Mathewson – Musician/Engineer/Producer:
“David’s album is an eclectic mix of ideas that he has been collecting and honing over a period of years. It features an interesting dynamic range of material from the lush string arrangement of “Love is a Game”, or the more electronic feel of “Cindy Clark” to the more acoustic mood of “In Time” and “Our Princess”. He also manages to inject a good helping of blues with “If You’re Without A Woman”, the happy sounding “Queen Bee” and the thought provoking “Serving Time”. There’s even some jazz on offer with the smokey sounding “Another Lover”. A few of the songs fall into no particular category, but are just good pop songs, such as “Someone Like Me”, “Here Without You”, “Walk Away”, and “A Tall Ship” or “Mayday Fair” and “Jojo’s Café in Paree”. I hope that you will enjoy David’s album and I hope that you will find, like me, that it has something for everyone”.
