Love Austin Music Month is quickly coming to a close and we’d be remiss if we didn’t shine the spotlight at least once on Austin treasure David Messier. The former frontman of Boston outfit Papermoon and founder of Same Sky Productions recording studio moved to Texas in 2009 and through his music, Messier’s made the most of the last decade. Historically a high-ranking member of the Grammy’s Recording Academy, Messier is an invaluable music community figurehead with his mitts on SIMS, HAAM, and way more than we can list.
Messier’s philanthropy and creative contributions to the local scene as a songwriter, producer, engineer and overall good guy earned him the declaration of June 8th as “David Messier Day” by Austin Mayor Steve Adler. Late last year Messier released his solo album, Time Bomb, and you have two opportunities to hear some selections from it live this weekend. David Messier joins the 11:59 Songwriting Group this Friday at the Cactus Cafe and has another performance this Saturday at One-2-One Bar. Time Bomb is available for streaming and download everywhere so let’s tick towards the weekend and set it off with “No Escape”!
