David's latest solo acoustic album "Detour" has been released on itunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play, Tidal and many other streaming sites!  Featuring seven new songs and two classics, it is a throwback to the classic singer-songwriter style of acoustic guitar and voice.  Lyrically driven, stripped bare and intimate, it is his most honest work to date. 

"Actually, to tell the truth, the whole album is based on hushed, acoustic guitar-based melodies, sung with much verve and the aforementioned poetic lyrics that really shine. It shows that Wakeling’s not staying in one spot, but experimenting with styles and also changing things up, album to album."

Hello!  Thanks for visiting.   No, I am not THAT Dave Wakeling from the English Beat, etc.  I am the other one (although I suppose there could be more), the struggling singer-songwriter from Portland Oregon.  Yes, THAT one.  Feel free to look around, listen to some tunes and generally hang out.

All songs are composed and performed by David Wakeling
