David Andrew Wiebe - FragmentsHey all, I know it’s been a while since I’ve published anything here.

I tend to get a little ambitious with all of my projects, so while I do make an effort to keep this site updated, I don’t always get around to posting on the blog. I need to fix that.

Yes, “Fragments” is here, and that’s still pretty fresh in my mind. But that’s not the only reason I’m excited. I have another single that comes out tomorrow, and yet another that’s about halfway finished.

I know that there has been a long, prolonged silence on the music front. I’ve been out there performing, I’ve been producing, I’ve even appeared as a session player on other people’s wonderful albums. But it is a bit of a different feeling to be releasing my own music again.

Shipwrecked… My Sentiments harkens all the way back to 2006 (hard to believe it’s almost been 10 years). Even Demos 2010, which was an unofficial release, came out in 2011.

Between 2011 and 2015, I was pretty heavily involved in business. If nothing else, it was an extremely valuable learning experience, but I’m not sure it was ever meant to be more than that.

My business efforts continue on in the form of my book and the content creation I do for The Music Entrepreneur and Music Entrepreneur Book. For me, I love writing and podcasting, so it is just as much a pursuit of passion as it is a business. But I’m also earnestly looking at ways it can make a living for me.

As of now, I am an in-demand full-time freelancer, and that in and of itself is a major accomplishment worth celebrating. But I’m also looking ahead at the horizon to figure out how I can achieve even more freedom.

In any case, getting back to the subject at hand, “Fragments” is available in a variety of difference places. You can even listen for free if you so choose, but I always appreciate purchases.

Check out “Fragments” at the following fine outlets:

By the way, you can also find it on iTunes, but I can’t find a link for that. Just go into the iTunes store and search it up if you like.

David Andrew Wiebe - Demos 2010Yes, you heard right. Finally, back by popular demand, is the long-lost legendary musical collection, Demos 2010!

Recorded, mixed and mastered in 2010 and released in 2011, this is the only official unofficial David Andrew Wiebe release of its kind since Shipwrecked… My Sentiments in 2006 (which was more of an official release.

And how much would you expect an all-original 12-track collection to cost? $20? $15? $5? Free?

Well, if you happened to guess free, you’re right. Sort of.

You are absolutely welcome to download it for free, and you won’t hear us complaining (right, Pat and Anna?), but since this is a pay-what-you-want project, anything you can throw our way is always appreciated. Money isn’t everything, but it does encourage us and help us to create more great art like this.

If you’re ready to download, simply click here. If you’d like to learn more about this project, you can always go over to the Demos 2010 page.

Don’t forget to share this with your friends!

This song was also on Demos 2010 if you remember. Technically, the song requires two guitars, but I have been figuring out ways of playing it solo.

You’ll see that the song has evolved somewhat, and also includes some percussive elements. Interestingly enough, this version of “Savage Love” is still changing, and I’ve added more cool flourishes to it lately.

I wanted to experiment with more keyboard sounds, so I think that’s why this track happened. It’s really in keeping with the theme of the project, and bears some similarities to “Fear No Longer” and “Something to Say”. The main difference, of course, is the fact that this is an instrumental.

If I was working toward a more polished production, I probably would have worked out more parts, but aside from the rhythm guitar, this song is largely improvised.

I had the riff for this song sitting around for quite a while (I think I wrote it when I was still playing with Angels Breaking Silence), so I finally put some words and a melody to it for the Demos 2010 project.

When I write a song like this, I am always imagining someone specific that needs encouragement. If you could hear God’s voice, I believe He would let you know that “You are not forgotten.”
