David Schaak celebrates the release of his debut Southern Rock album ‘Meet My Ghosts’ with special guest Sue Ray.
In late 2019, Melbourne bred, Brisbane based singer-songwriter David Schaak, took a clutch of songs and headed into the studio with producer Lee Griffin and engineer Jason Millhouse from Recordworks (Brisbane). All three were holding on to a strict ‘less-is-more’ policy, resisting any unnecessary layering or complexity that would hide the all-important human element. The focus was on simplicity and performance – if they wanted a dirty guitar, then they simply turned it up – loud.
They were joined in the studio by the talented trio of Jen Mize, Brendan McMahon (Tracy McNeil and the Goodlife, Saint Jude) and Marty Smith (Sean Sennett, Wind Up Dolls) who all brought their own particular brand of magic to the sessions.
Now 2020, with the first two singles "Lost, Alone and Lonesome" and "Honey Pot" already gathering airplay around the country, David and band will be launching "Meet My Ghosts" – with its blend of Southern Rock, Americana, Country and Rock – at What's Golden with special guest Sue Ray.
