“I wrote this in a few hours’ long burst of inspiration,” says alt-country artist David Newbould of his new track “Sin & Redemption.” “I honestly don’t know where it came from, I just know it felt important to me. Family tragedy can be a crippling cross to bear in life. I wanted to write a story of people learning to manage their expectations in life while still coming out the other side, with love intact. A guy who loves his sister, loves his mother, and spends his life forging his own way while trying to shed resentment.” “Sin & Redemption” is the title track of his forthcoming album, set via for release on October 18, 2019 via Rock Ridge Music. The song is deceptively upbeat–its terrain is paved with recollections of abuse and family hardship, but there is an unmistakable “fall down seven times, get up eight” kind of resolve permeating throughout the verses.
The Toronto-born Nashville-based Newbould brings a specific kind of desert-style heat to the execution of his music. His universally-relatable subject matter opens the door, his seasoned vocals beckon the listener to jump in, while muscle-y guitar licks and a hard-driving rhythm section step on the gas and peel out for what’s bound to be an exciting ride.
