Ten years ago David Heavenor made his debut with the splendid album 'Private'. In spite of the fact that it was so good a tremendous album followed, David Heavenor remains fairly unknown in Belgium and The Netherlands. Scotland,however, regards this singer-songwriter as one of it's biggest talents of the moment. His second album 'Winters Children' contains cleverly modest rootsongs, which can be classified between the works of Al Stewart or Nick Drake. These songs are bubbling with melancholy, yet they bring joy as well. They immediately stick in the mind, yet they´ll not cease to surprise you. David Heavenor and his guitar form a special entity. He is a master performer who uses various moods paying little heed to any of the laws of music. He manages to find the perfect balance between voice and instrument. Piano, bass, percussion, acoustic guitar and the backup vocals of Steven Butler (Heavenor´s producer) complete the songs on Winters Children. The discreet accompaniment enhances the melancholic character of the songs. While Private (1993), with frequent performances from Simon Jaquet, might be known as his best album, Winters Children certainly is his most impressive one. Once again David Heavenor has proven to be unique! Rootstime Radio Belgium.
