Leonard Cohen . . . Ray LaMontagne. . . and now Dave Godowsky!


Every week I receive countless requests to review albums from new artists. I always take the time to listen to some cuts and review new as many as I can. This artist, Dave Godowsky, didn’t ask for a review or send me his music. . . I ran across this from a post of Facebook.

When I clicked on the link, I was pleasantly surpised because this was a ‘no frills’ web site . . . it’s only about his music. I clicked on the song links and realized that I was listening to someone who writes and plays from his heart. Godowsky’s music is not about ‘fluff’. He writes about ‘life experiences . . . love . . . pain. . . ‘ His music touched me as much as Leonard Cohen and Ray LaMontagne.

Dave’s music should be on everyone’s iPod. Check his page and buy it today!


Ciao Y’all,
