David Mead Tickets for Sale

An American singer-songwriter, David Mead is renowned for creating songs in classical pop music style with a dominately ambiguous high voice. Mead finally became a guitarist and backup vocalist with Nashville-based band Joe, Marc's Brother. The founders of that band meant well so they bucked up Mead to follow up on a solo career owing to different artistic insights. Not too happy, he began to perform on his own around Nashville, in time deriving adequate notoriety to draw in the stance of his current manager, Kip Krones. Kip took a demo of Mead's songs to various record labels. Mead moved to New York in 1997, recording what would become his 1999 debut release, The Luxury of Time. Finally in 1998, RCA Records signed him after he performed solo with a guitar in the company's offices. The album acquired a lot of critical applaud, marking comparisons to Lennon-McCartney and Paul Simon, but sold with moderation. The crafted sound of his songs appressed with the more transient commercial hit songs of the time. This was a reference to the wit in a biography found on the RCA website for Mead, a private "Marketing Strategy Bulletin" positing marketing angles such as recreating Mead as a "Latin Heartthrob" or making him to perform at Ozzfest.

David Mead was born to David Mead Sr. and Sheryll Mead in 1973 in Syosset, New York. He moved a lot during his childhood, largely staying within the Southern United States. He finally based himself in Nashville, Tennessee, where he played out the initial part of his career in bands such as Verdant Green and Blue Million. Produced by Adam Schlesinger of the band Fountains of Wayne because they trusted in Mead's potentiality, it led to RCA to release his second album Mine and Yours in 2001.

Mine and Yours, being a average seller and critical success, permitted Mead to record a third album, produced by Stephen Hague, which was not supported by RCA as a result of Mead being released from his recording contract when RCA's corporate parent BMG integrated with Sony Music Entertainment in 2004. Mead released a portion of these tracks in the form of 2005's Wherever You Are EP through Eleven Thirty Records as he had preserved the rights to the recordings he made with Stephen Hague when he was signed to RCA. The EP was accepted with a lot of kudos by reveiwers, concreting Mead's honor as an skilled songwriter and the critics darling. With the aim of releasing Tangerine, the most euphoric and audacious work in his catalogue, Mead formed Tallulah Media in 2006. The album merges a woozy variety of instruments into masterful arrangements that without any strain, influence Mead's observations on the often unheeded subject of marriage.

Mead got back to Nashville, and started working on another album, Indiana, with cellist and producer David Henry, where he met his wife, visual artist Natalie Cox. This album was much more meagre and had an intimate feel than his prior albums, and was released in 2004 by Nettwerk, a Canadian record label.
