"It’s really hard to believe that “A Voice In The Wilderness Volume 2”, is only David Vaters’ second solo album. All things taken into consideration,                     it actually sounds like his twentieth."               Music Critic Rick Jamm - Jamsphere.com

 

Huffington Post, stated, “David's music is creative and original, suffused with an ardent spiritual awareness rare in today’s music industry.”
 
CCM Magazine featured David in an interview recently describing him as, - Something new, all over again!

The upcoming ‘Volume 2’ boasts most of the same impressive line-up as its predecessor, a collaboration that had critics calling ‘Volume 1’ “nothing if not mature, deftly crafted and powerful.” Like that album, ‘Volume 2’ will be part of Vaters’ ‘A Voice in the Wilderness’ collection of volumed records. “If this is the first album of his out of the starting blocks, at least in a titular sense, imagine what gems are likely to follow,” raved Dave Franklin of Los Angeles - The Plug.
 
Very good songs on this album, delivered by David Vaters in a bowie type approach which really punches through. The backing vocals remind me of the sort of sound the Beatles had. Apart from drums and keyboards which are excellent, the Cd chugs along nicely without any disappointment. Very good, especially enjoyed the vocals and the songs. Nicely put together offering!  Well done!

Honing a lifelong craft like songwriting in just mere months, Vaters has created enough material to launch not one, but two debut solo albums: A Voice In The Wilderness – Volume 1 (buy) released earlier this year, with Volume 2 set to make its official appearance next month.

When an artist comes out of the gate with an ambitious project, like a two-part album to kick off their discography, you know they mean business. David Vaters is just such an artist. A Voice in the Wilderness, Vol. 1 shows the singer/songwriting aiming to make a splash in the independent music scene. Combining Americana, country, and blues rock (an easy combination, but a great sound nonetheless), Vaters writes vulnerable songs that deal with a variety of topics. "8 Ways From Sunday" describes the love his wife has for him, despite his tendency to take it for granted, while "Mansion in the Sky" and "See You In Heaven" focus on the joy we have to look forward to in Heaven. A Voice in the Wilderness, Vol. 1 excels musically, with soothing music that can really touch the soul. It's particularly noticeable in the instrumental version of "Brighter Than The Stars" at the end of the album. Vocally, Vaters can hit some really sweet spots on occasion, but the music and the songs' themes are easily the highlights of this outing. I'm looking forward to seeing what Vol. 2 has to offer. - Review date: 7/26/17, written by Scott Fryberger of Jesusfreakhideout.com
 
 
David Vaters sings straight from the heart on the bluesy “8 Ways From Sunday”. With a timeless classic rock sound, the way the song unfolds is masterful. Attention to detail is of the utmost importance striking just the right balance between ballad and bombast. By far the heart of the song comes from the clever lyricism, which reveals an uncanny knack for storytelling. Over the course of the piece David Vaters sings of a life lived most fully, where even the smallest gestures and habits are greatly noticed. Giving this lyricism additional weight is the tender tones that make up the memorable melody, which builds up quite elegantly over the duration of the track. ”

Wasting no time, David Vaters begins the song with the right amount of energy. Nicely stripping the sound down to the essentials when necessary, the song’s ebb and flow is full of life. Layer upon layer of sound intermingles in a most thoughtful manner, one which grows ever bigger and most elaborate. A loose, jazz-like rhythm comes into play while the piece swirls around with careful keyboards gracing the track. Vocals possess true tender love whose sound comes on full and complete. Devotional to its very core, the message of togetherness, of building a relationship together, rings proud and true. Towards the final stretch of the song everything comes together in a glorious rush of drums, organ, and guitar before it all fades away leaving David Vaters’ strong confident voice. On “8 Ways From Sunday” David Vaters sculpts a clever intricate piece, one whose haunting beauty lingers. ”
