Regensburg, Bavaria (PRWEB) March 3, 2006
Little did he know in 2005 when he sent 5 CD's to CDBaby.com that the world would be downloading his work every minute of every day. Dave Bonney, singer and songwriter, looks back on over three decades of entertainment with a laughing and weeping eye. As he started touring Europe in the 1980's he was renowned for his own style and his memorable voice but only managed to reach those within the audience at hand. With digital distribution courtesy of CDBaby.com the audience has suddenly grown out of proportion. People are downloading all tracks of the four CD's on offer and they are all over the world.
“I never thought I could reach so many people at once” said Dave, and continued “my music is being picked up by all and sundry, the feedback is tremendous”
All Around Sandy is a 1982 digitally remastered production. Once again it shows the songwriting ability of Dave Bonney. You are taken through many moods and styles; not only are these hard and powerful songs but also has one of the most incredibly beautiful and enchanting songs on it called "Sandy", a true story.
“I wrote this song to save a young girl's life who was on the one way street to addiction, if you listen to the lyrics you will understand. I met her in Frankfurt, Germany, and basically had to help her change her direction. I asked her 'if I write a song for you would you stop?', she did not believe me but she said yes. So determined to make it I tried and tried, and Sandy was born; not only the song but the girl herself. Like magic, after hearing it she stopped doing drugs and was reborn.”
If only more people could hear this, the world might be a better place.
