“David Western’s songs draw you in so close you feel like you are sitting next to him, and you are reassured by his presence. Honest and preceptive, a true songwriter on the rise, well worthy of a repeated listen.” – Henry Wagons, Double J
“David is one of my favourite Australian musicians. He is a sharp, unique songwriter, a beautiful guitarist and a real musician’s musician. I always look forward to David’s releases for songwriting inspiration.” – Julia Jacklin
Cherished Melbourne singer songwriter David M. Western is thrilled to finally announce the launch shows for long awaited debut album Child Mind. Trickling out a string of equally arresting singles since 2020 including album icebreaker ‘Instant Life’, tongue-in-cheek follow up ‘Take Your Opportunities’, the Springsteen and Orbison inspired ‘Blue Eyes Red’, and recent album opener and namesake ‘Child Mind’, David M. Western has built a dedicated cult following with his earnest interrogations of the mundane, the unusual, the tragic and the beautiful. His songs have been added to 2SER, SYN FM and Aussie Music Weekly rotation, with premieres on both Triple J and Double J nationally. David is stoked to announce two upcoming intimate launch shows at beloved Melbourne venue The Old Bar and Castlemaine classic The Bridge Hotel.
