David Mead - Indiana - Netwerk

Born in New York, singer-songwriter David Mead spent most of his life in Nashville where he still lives. After spending several years as a member of a couple of Nashville’s most popular local bands, including Joe Mark’s Brother, David left the band and released his solo debut in 1999 with The Luxury Of Time. Mead specializes in sweet, melodic pop songs that often recall Paul Simon’s early solo work, the more romantic side of Paul McCartney and the pop wizardry of Fountains of Wayne.

Indiana is a fairly stripped down musical affair; acoustic guitars, light keyboards and percussion take back seat to Mead’s beautiful voice and really showcase his mastery at songwriting. Songs like “Beauty,” “You Might See Him,” and “Nashville” are introspective and gorgeous and he masterfully covers Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature.” Indiana is more subdued than his previous efforts yet he still manages to create stunning music out of the art of confession.
