David Myhr hand-picked by The Word

I’m happy to announce that my song “Got you where he wanted” has been hand-picked by the influential British music magainze The WORD and is featured on their free, 15-track CD featuring “the best new music of right now”. This CD accompanies the June issue of the magazine and is out now in the U.K. (It’s worth buying solely for finding out what John Lennon wore at the beach!).
On this CD I’m in good company with many great artists like Kathryn Williams, The Black Seeds, The Heartbreaks and many more. Like for instance the great Gaz Coombes who used to front one of my favorite bands from the Britpop era – Supergrass.
So big thanks to THE WORD for picking my song – and a big welcome to the supposed hordes of readers who stumbled in to my web page after having heard my song or seen the video. Please feel free to browse through and enjoy old blog posts and also to follow me (and say “hi”) on Facebook or Twitter. And find out how to get your copy of Soundshine here!
Thanks also to my European label Lojinx who made my album available in the U.K. Read about the signing here. I’m fully aware that selling pop music to Great Britain is somewhat like selling sand to the Arabs. But I must say I feel that there’s a lack of current melodic guitar based pop out there – especially of the happy, uplifting kind. So my album Soundshine is my way of trying to contribute to the genre. Some, like for instance Real Gone, hints I might have succeeded; “Soundshine does exactly what it claims – twelve pieces of great sounding pop which mostly act as a welcome ray of sunshine”. Also, Americana-UK reports “doctors in Sweden prescribe this CD as a cure for seasonal affective disorder” which I talked about in my previous blog post.
It’s so fine, it’s sunshine, it’s THE WORD – love!
