Southport born Dave Green
features on M:89 Records Lost Songs compilation Album
THE Lost Songs campaign aims to seek
out the very best songs that have been written, but never recorded. The album
was recorded at Metropolis Studios where an average of 50% of the UK's Top 40
Chart is recorded, mixed or mastered, and will be released on M:89 Records. As
innovators in the music business, always seeking out the freshest talent, M:89
Records is extremely proud to be supporting this campaign and bringing these
'lost songs' to the forefront of the music industry and accessible for music
lovers to hear and buy.
The brainchild of Ticking Tree's songwriter 'ADMAN,' Lost Songs is
there to find the John Lennons, Adeles and Freddie Mercurys that are hidden and
have so far gone unnoticed. Both Adele and Mercury have recorded at Metropolis,
the world's largest independent recording complex, but the facility also places
high priority on supporting the developing artists of the future. As Tony
Visconti pointed out in his keynote speech at this year's SXSW Festival,
"The next David Bowie is out there, but not getting a shot", and this
why M:89 Records has decided to back this campaign, to find the next David Bowie
or Amy Winehouse and give him/her that shot.
"I've been thinking for a while that there must be a plethora of beautiful
songs that have been carefully written and crafted, but have never seen the
light of day. They are drifting, lost. We believe that out there, somewhere,
just waiting to be found, are songs like Lennon's Imagine, Adele's Someone Like
You, Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud, and so on. That is
what inspired the Lost Songs project: we want to find them! It really could be
that one day, when listening to music on the radio, people will be saying, "Did
you know, that was once a Lost Song?" said ADMAN.
Always musically minded and in complete awe of music's power over people
emotionally and spiritually, Dave Green's main ambition is to produce an amazing
album, alongside dipping his toes into the world of publishing and sync. Having
performed as Ray Davies support act at Colston Hall previously, Dave longs to
play more amazing venues. Born in Southport and now living in Bristol, Dave's
'Lost Song' 'On My Mind' was written about a partner who had previously made a
leap of faith to move to Scotland with him having only known him for twelve
days. Soon realising she wasn't a fan of British weather, the relationship
didn't last long and Dave decided to write a song about the experience. With
influences ranging from 80s pop to deep blues, Dave likes anything with
