David Myhr – “Soundshine”

David Myhr

During the nineties David Myhr was a member of the power pop band The Merrymakers. Now he’s back with his first solo album “Soundshine”, a very fitting name for the album. Even if the lyrics aren’t that sunny, the music is; the album is filled to the rim with melodies, hooks and refrains we sing a long with all the way to the beach.

To me this IS pop, that is what I grew up with and defined pop as a word to me during the seventies. ELO, 10cc,  Gilbert O’Sullivan, George Harrison walks by and the master himself, Paul McCartney, is very much present. From that point of view  “Soundshine” has nothing to be ashamed for. It’s an impressive collection of songs, where I think each and everyone of the tunes would qualify as a gluey pop single.

Here below David treats us with the first two tracks from the album. To listen more, you can go to Spotify or to Wimp. Follow David on his site and on Facebook.
