David Messier 2.18.2016

Posted by on Feb 19, 2016

Fellow Austinite and singer-songwriter, David Messier stopped by Studio 1A on Thursday to share with us some original songs from his upcoming solo album, Waiting For Eldridge. Having been the front man for Boston band, Papermoon, to being the owner of the Austin recording studio, Same Sky Productions, Messier has had little trouble staying busy. With a sound that blends americana, rock and folk that bring up similarities of Tom Petty, Messier is a hurricane force of music that he humbly self-describes as just rock n’ roll. Bringing together keyboard parts, trumpet playing, and sonically charged guitar grooves that intertwine effortlessly with his lyrics, Messier masters multiple sounds and moods, from deep, intimate ballads, to switching and rocking your face off.

David Messier will be having his album release show at The Townsend, February 26th, at 9 p.m. so make sure to get tickets while they’re available. You can also stream his music here on KUTX.
