A Glorious Sunday Gift from @DavidArchie

Nothing better could cap a week of teasers and samplings than a full-length access to a new song of David and an informative interview that more than tickled Archies worldwide. Thanks to Steven Kapp Perry of FM100.3, we got to listen to GLORIOUS, a new song written by @stephaniemabey that David lent his equally glorious voice for one of the sound tracks of the movie, Meet the Mormons”. I can just imagine it, some people waiting for the ending credits just to hear David’s voice soar in glorious cinematic space! We also learned from an interview some glorious nuggets, to wit: 1. That Project Glorious was conceived while David was still on his […]

@DavidArchie Goes Gospel – A Snippet

Is anyone really surprised? That David’s 1st offering since he came back from his Mission belongs to the Gospel genre? Am sure some Archies are further wondering whether this will be the direction David will take from now on and forget about his pop roots and more commercial beginnings. For me? Am just excited to hear his voice on record. And you know what am more thrilled of? The Nashville connection! Granted that this Nashville Band is actually a Mormon music group founded by Jason Deere and Dan Truman, the pianist of the popular country group Diamond Rio (Source: Wikipedia), am still excited of the prospect of David leaning over Nashville […]

@DavidArchie’s “She’s Not You”

OK, am writing this on a fly right after a grueling traffic morning here in Manila. As always, to ease the burden of going through mindless shifts and stops along EDSA, my iPod went through some of these sounds: David’s, MJ, The Beatles, Bruno Mars, The Killers, Journey, Freestyle, Hall & Oates, Civil Wars, Ric Segreto aaaand eventually returned to more David songs. The shuffle hit a familiar but unreleased track of David — “She’s Not You” and said to myself: Hmmmmmm… This really sounds gooood! Nice groove. Great beat. Showcases the soul from that white boy from Utah. And it is not over-produced! Message is apt for a 23 year-old […]

Imagine Keeping It Real Like @DavidArchie

Recently, Carly Rose Sonenclar, one of the front runners of X-Factor USA took a jab at Lennon’s “Imagine”. She had been performing splendidly over the course of the show. At 13, the youngest front runner in recent reality TV talent shows, she had been called “alien”, a prodigy, gifted, etc… Terms once heaped on David once upon an Idol time. So comparisons if not trepidation are invitable. OMG Yahoo didn’t mince words — Carly Rose Sonenclar vs. David Archuleta – Why David’s Cover of ‘Imagine’ was Superior “X Factor’s” Carly Rose Sonenclar will have a great career, but she might want to pick up some pointers from David Archuleta. Last night, she took a […]

A New Sound from David Archuleta

“I wanted to create a project where I could bring together some of my incredibly talented friends and share their gift of music with the world. This is a collection of some of my favorite writers and artists singing some of my favorite Christmas songs! I hope you enjoy listening to this collection of music as much as we enjoyed recording it. Next year I am hoping to do this again so I can include some people that due to scheduling and what not we weren’t able to this time around. I wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season, filled with peace and love. Enjoy!” ~ Dapo Deeper… Warm… Luxuriantly […]

“She’s Not You”

When David revealed on Twitter March 5th that “She’s Not You” was from “a while back”—and therefore wasn’t a candidate for the second album—I felt relieved. No, no, no… it’s not that I hate the song. I like it: it’s catchy, and in particular the melody and the guitar in the verses create a nice vibe. (Though the chorus is a bit too bland for my liking.) When I first heard it, I felt anxiety about the second pop album… was this the direction it was headed? We now know that it was a track recorded for David’s first album, but still my day or two of not knowing this made it […]
