David SweetLow brings together a gentle folk sound and a well-traveled perspective in his music. There’s an immediate delicate warmth to the songs as they start to play, the acoustic guitar picking and SweetLow’s near-whispered, smooth and heartfelt vocals walk hand-in-hand as the songs pour through. It’s an easy kind of ambiance to embrace and be simultaneously embraced by. 

His lyrics paint an appealing picture of gratitude and a simple appreciation for life and the world. There’s a poetic aura to many of the songs, as well as, in equal parts, personal intimacy, so his songs feel both accessible and truthful to the artist behind them. 

The more you listen to David's lyrics and intricate melodies the more you'll learn about the artist behind them. There’s a softness to his presentation that resonates the calming energy of his music. His beautifully crafted lines and ideas, which often rise in intensity during his songs will lead you to a deeper connection. Some of his vocal and production work are quite stunning actually, simple but effective in bringing through the central idea in a manner that’s likely to keep his audience sharing in his deep sentiment right there in the moment.

A Day At A Time

“A Day At A Time” is about how the world seems to be going insane. By nearly every objective measure, the world is a better place than it has ever been in modern history. So why doesn't it feel that way?

 

It seems the world is spinning out of control and there’s nothing we can do about it. I’m so tired of all the stories of how the Covid numbers are up, the new variants, the shootings and riots. It’s a constant stream of negativity. I, too, feel desensitized from this seemingly unending bad news raging across the planet.

This continued awareness of every fault and flaw of humanity, combined with an inundation of doomsayers and narcissistic nihilists clawing at our attention space, is what is causing this feeling of a chaotic and insecure world that I feel doesn’t really exist.

We are going crazy. We are capsized in the flood of negativity and we seem to be prepared to burn down the structures on which most successful civilizations in human history have been built.

“Where Do Good Friends Go” is dedicated to Hiroka Isobe a friend of mine who passed away in June this year. She was an English student who I taught for more than three years and with whom I developed a great friendship. She and her parents owned a pharmacy in Ebetsu, in Hokkaido Japan. She was the life and soul of her pharmacy shop where she installed a grand piano and asked her customers to play it if they so wished. She’d also organise free concerts to entertain them. 

The last time I saw her was there at her shop in May of this year where she cooked me Yakisoba (Japanese fried noodles) for lunch on the shop counter. She was a one off, never to be repeated lady, always laughing and happy, and who enjoyed life and watching others having a good time. Rest in peace Hiroka san. 

"Where Do Good Friends Go "は、今年の6月に亡くなった私の友人、Hirokaさんに捧げます。彼女は、私が3年以上教えていた英語の生徒で、素晴らしい友情を育んできました。彼女と彼女のご両親は、北海道の江別市で薬局を経営していました。薬局が彼女の人生そのもの 全てで グランドピアノを置いて、希望するお客さんにはピアノを弾いてもらったりしてました。また、お客さんに楽しんでもらうために無料のコンサートも開催していました。最後に彼女に会ったのは今年の5月、薬局のカウンターで 私に昼食の焼きそばを作ってくれたときでした。彼女はいつも笑っていてハッピーで人生を楽しんでいて、他の人が楽しんでいるのを見るのが好きな、唯一無二の女性でした。Hirokaさん、安らかにお眠りください。

Fight Back

David SweetLow

Everybody seeks help at some point in their lives. Only some will find it. Depression is something that shows itself differently for everyone. There is no one person, or one story, or one experience that can make someone truly understand how depression alters the lives of the people who suffer from it and those around them. However, never be too

Everybody seeks help at some point in their lives. Only some will find it. Depression is something that shows itself differently for everyone. There is no one person, or one story, or one experience that can make someone truly understand how depression alters the lives of the people who suffer from it and those around them. However, never be too proud to reach out and ask for help. It will change your life. So Fight Back!
