Very few albums these days inspire me to write about them, at least with any degree of enthusiasm. However David Ward Maclean’s The Wreckers stands out from the crowd in such a bold way. It just seems the obvious thing to do.

Having been lucky enough to hear many of the eleven songs featured here in a live environment prior to it’s release, and also fragments of them in the creative and embryonic process, I was definitely looking forward to hearing the album with a great deal of anticipation. It didn’t disappoint, but it has taken me until now to really gather my thoughts about it.

The Artist

To say that David Ward Maclean is a singer/songwriter is somewhat of an understatement, even adding in words like composer, artist or painter. I doubt I’ll ever be as deft or proficient with words as he displays in his songwriting, so if you’re interested in finding out a little more about the man himself, I shall point you towards this article where he tells it in his own words. It’s an interesting read, I think you’ll agree.

For now though, I’ll end by saying it’s a priviledge to know him, and count him as a friend. The music he makes is beautiful in so many ways, I just hope it won’t be too long before I’ll be writing about his next album. You can preview, and buy The Wreckers here, and I really hope that you do. You’ll fall in love with it as I and many, many others already have.

As a little taster, here’s a recent live performance of my favourite track from the album, courtesy of YouTube…
