David Vandervelde appeared before us one hot summer day like a dynamo. The sound we heard coming through in stereo was that of our coming-of-age years screaming back at us - a faithful reminder that our beauteous days of bowing before pin-up rock stars and carving iconographic logos on desktops and in famous treetrunks have not passed us by. No, David Vandervelde is here to remind us that the truest, most primal and addictive properties of rock n' roll are ageless. His third LP, simply titled Vandervelde, is due in October on Secretly Canadian.
"Reverb-drenched roots rock driven by Vandervelde's shaggy vocals and guitar. He manages to be both highbrow and homespun"
"An eccentric talent whose head is firmly inclined towards the past"
"Vandervelde clearly knows what he's doing, and does it very well"
