Since his excellent T-Bone Burnett produced, self-titled debut was released in 1997, David Poe has applied his craft as a traditional “singer-songwriter,” on a handful of studio albums. His songs have been recorded by Daryl Hall, Grace Potter, Curtis Stigers, Duncan Sheik and others. He has written scores for dance and theater projects (The Copier: Music for Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet and Shadowland: Music for Pilobolus), films, television shows (Nashville) and has produced records by various musicians including Regina Spektor. Poe is releasing his new studio album, God & The Girl on August 10th. He plays the Tin Angel tonight. Go here for tickets and more information about the show.
Below, download “Lonely Like Me” from David’s new album. It’s a gorgeous, intimate, acoustic based love song. If you’re familiar with David’s studio recordings, it’s a classic David Poe song that showcases his excellent sense of melody and arrangement. If you’re not familiar and you’re a fan of Paul Simon’s early solo work, and James Taylor, this should strike the right chord with you.
