Taken from the new 10″ by David Allred, “Woods”, out September 24th on Oscarson Label.
David Allred (born 1992) grew up in California, near the city of Sacramento. After falling in love with the trumpet, he decided to study jazz, and could be found transcribing and recreating the solos of chet baker. but david’s musical curiosity took him far beyond the trumpet and jazz, and soon he was experimenting in all different styles of music. He started to sing, play the guitar, the upright bass, the piano, just about any instrument he could find. in his late teens and early twenties, he started to record his own songs, releasing countless albums for free online, sometimes as frequently as a once a month.
These early recordings caught the ear of Peter Broderick, who moved back to his home State of Oregon around the same time that David moved up to Portland in 2013. And it didn’t take long for them to start collaborating. David played on Peter’s songs, Peter played on David’s songs, and eventually peter invited david out to his studio on the Oregon coast to record an album.
“Hymns” is featured as the current “single of the week” of the radio show L’Attimo Fuggente.
