As restorative as a cool fresh waterfall, anxiously awaited and heavily anticipated, David Celia’s self produced “This Isn’t Here”, his follow- up to 2002’s Organica, was well worth the wait. Recorded between tours, the “pure musical escapism” (on Organica, NOW Magazine) IS here, as is the “excellent musicianship…elegant and melodic” (Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy) and the beautiful harmonies, all of which characterize David Celia.
A recent German review calls Celia “completely charmful… contemplative. wonderful atmosphere... you will like him immediately..like a warm embrace from a good friend” (rock e-zine, Berlin). “David Celia is one of the best talents to hit Merseyside from North America” (Alex McKechnie, Cavern Club, Liverpool).
While “This Isn’t Here” may be categorized as “roots-pop with hints of folk “ (and perhaps some country vibes and a little rockin’), David’s classicism manages to, naturally and effortlessly, cross genre’s and ages. Toddlers and Adults alike are charmed, and so are Lovers of Folk Music and fans of Pop Music.
