Jonas David "You In the Fires" Keep The Times Volkoren (Munich) 2011
Listen to “You In The Fires” MP3
Born out of rush of vivid dreams, Germany’s Jonas David’s debut Keep The Times plots a cinematic path along the universal touchpoints of hope, love, anger and pain. Acoustic guitar, percussion, vibraphone and Rhodes piano provide the backdrop to tracks which reflect a smartly edited approach to indie folk coupled with a pop sensibility. Jonas’s vocals wrap around infectious melodies, often lifting into a Justin Vernon falsetto. Warm and carefully restrained, Keep The Times is a welcome summer debut.
