Günter Pauler recorded David Roth performing a collection of famous and not so famous “evergreens” of the Anglo-American songwriting: “Song For You Far Away” (James Taylor), “I Will” (Lennon/McCartney), “Blowin’ In The Wind” (Bob Dylan), “Streets Of London” (Ralph McTell), “American Tune” (Paul Simon), “You’ve Got A Friend” (Carole King) and 8 other pearls.
The beautiful arrangements are vitalized by some well-known Stockfisch studio musicians. Among others: Chris Jones (guitars), Fiona Simpson and Roger Nicholls (backing vocals), Hans-Jörg Maucksch (fretless bass) as well as multi instrumentalists Siard de Jong and Beo Brockhausen.
“One of the reasons I write songs and play music is to try and bring more beauty into a world that needs more beauty.” (David Roth)
“David Roth, a powerful new singer-songwriter has reached our hearts. With voices like his still singing, there’s a certainty that the candle will remain lit, the hope reasserted and the dream still sung…” – Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul & Mary)
“David writes and sings songs with a devastating combination of heartfelt wisdom and incisive wit. In my eyes he sets a new ‘contemporary singer/songwriter’ standard for the rest of us to aspire to, and it’s a standard that is very, very high…” – Christine Lavin
