Welcome!

 David's new album "Well Imagine That" is now available on itunes, Amazon, Spotify and many other streaming sites.  A throwback to the classic singer-songwriter style, David covers some of his favorite artists.  A perfect album for a lazy Sunday.   All proceeds will be matched and donated to charity.

"The album as a whole is a great tribute to some great songwriters; songs that have been rearranged to have David Wakeling’s unique style; his strong voice, the razor sharp acoustic guitar as well as little extras here and there, like some piano, or a little background vocals. An album which shines as a way to reincarnate songs from the recent past and not make them mere covers, but altogether, new interpretations."

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 performed by me and composed by me except "Only For Me" composed by James Taylor.  Used by permission.

    Dave, Good to see/hear you after so many years. Here's an idea: Why not record "Salvation Army"? I think I could talk Steve into being available. Blessings, Dwight

    Hey David, Like that song "Takeaway"! Good lyrics, liked the harmony, and your voice is very clear. If you want any suggestions, I could see you doing the Eagles song "Love Will Keep Us Alive".

    Hi Dave & Candee, It is neat to have your own web site, isn't it? We enjoy your music. We are all impressed. Would love to meet Candee someday. She's visiting Tulsa soon? I will be in Moore, Okla June 17-27. That's about 2 hours [or less] from there. My sister lives there. Love, Uncle Bob and Auntie Pat
