David Nail Mention - Onmilwaukee.com Internet Magazine
Dec. 10, 2009
The cold weather has the OnMilwaukee.com editorial office hunkering down with some good music, warming up with a tasty Caribbean dish, a song that's sure to get you in the holiday spirit and much more.
Here are a few of our favorite things this week:
David Nail -- Through the ups and downs of a life in the music business, David Nail has been persistent -- and his dream became reality with "I'm About To Come Alive," a collection of songs that captures the highs and lows, and the flavor of his own experiences. Nail wrote five of the 11 tracks on this great album, and the single, "Red Light," a tune about a breakup in unlikely circumstances, is one of my current favorites. A bit moody and reflective, Nail's songs are honest, creative and real. The title track is a Train cover from 2003. It's a bit odd on a mainly country album, but, overall, Nail's debut is a solid listen. --Jeff Sherman
