Daydreams4rock.com is the official website of Sydney based Australian singer/songwriter, guitarist and Artist, David Emanuel. This year David took home a Screen Australia award for a short film he directed on rocks. The video clearly portrays his humour, intellect, and love for all. The video has spread love and Australian culture around the world, broadcasting many wise messages of experience and positivity. His first musical release, ‘Perfect Time’, with its mellow rock chords and laid back vocals, is perfect for a post surf chill-out or a lazy afternoon drive. David’s voice flows beautifully and the well written lyrics really find a place in your heart. Well written vocals of love and peace are carried through ambient tones as the beautiful story of love is painted. Apart from being a gifted songwriter and musician, David is also a talented artist creating unique Japanese inspired paintings that adorn his CD covers. The “Perfect Time” music video, also filmed and directed by Emanuel, fits in perfectly with the mood of the song showing beautiful beaches and the surrounding nature of an afternoon drive. David clearly has a strong talent for creating in all the arts from music, to the canvas, and film. David’s second single “Happy Neighbour Song” explores a faster tempo and energetic feel. The song begins with head-nodding percussion that breaks into rhythmic, soft-rock inspired psychedelic electric guitar riffs. As the complex chord layers come together tension really builds to an emotional climax of David’s innovative guitar style. The single, with its original cover artwork and stylistic psychedelic video, is another great showcase for the Australian talent. With the revival of psychedelic rock in today’s youth, it’s great to see a quality piece written by an artist who really embraces what the music originally stood for. “Happy Neighbour Song” really is a unique mystical journey! David’s artwork is a real revelation, drawing inspiration from Japanese styles and his own journey through life. The works really have a fresh and original charm that is rarely seen so bright and deep, yet amazingly complex. Dave Emanuel is clearly a name to keep a look out for in the future. Along with his collection of original paintings, David has also created a series of clocks bearing his amazing visions. David Emanuel’s work is available to buy through his website Daydreams4rock.com, where he is planning to showcase his amazing creations, as well as the work of other like minded musicians and artists. It really is inspiring to see talented Aussies getting together to collaborate and use the web to show the world what talent we really have done under! So don’t delay, check out David Emanuel’s work on Youtube, Itunes, Amazon, and his site Daydreams4rock.com.
