David Myhr - Soundshine

Thank you 2012! (Soundshine medley and slideshow)

It’s time to say goodbye to the year of 2012 and I want to do it by saying thank you to all you wonderful people who have been involved in one way or another in the events surrounding the release of my solo debut album Soundshine.

To do so I have put together a four minute long slide show that will take you through memorable moments from recording sessions in Stockholm and at Abbey Road in London to gigs in Tokyo, Osaka, Madrid, Burgos, London, Stockholm, and Piteå. But more importantly it shows some of all the great meetings I’ve had with music lovers, music colleagues, fans, friends, family, band mates, record label and music publishing people, and a couple of idols as well.

The soundtrack consists of a medley of all the songs on Soundshine in a “don’t bore us – get to the chorus” fashion. The photos were taken by among others Amy Campbell, Paula and Carol Muñoz Macaya, Kiki Fukuzumi, Jonas Förare, but also by many more… thanks!

So, from the bottom of my heart – thank you to each and everyone who has supported the release of Soundshine (and that includes all of you who didn’t end up in the slide show as well)!

Hope to see you all again in a not too distant future!

Happy New Year!

 


“Cut to the Chase” featured in U.K. TV-commercial for LOVEFiLM

As a songwriter one of the biggest thrills is when many people get to hear your music. At least so that the music has a small chance of being discovered by more people who may or may not like what they year.

Therefore I am extremely pleased that LOVEFiLM have decided to use the song ”Cut to the chase” from my solo debut Soundshine in an U.K. TV commercial. It’s used as the soundtrack for LOVEFiLM’s Christmas campaign advertising their new instant film service (LOVEFiLM instant) in time for the festive season!

If you like the song please feel free to check out the album Soundshine here or add the song from Spotify to your playlists. Or why not enjoy a video with a live version of the song from a festival called PDOL:

I wrote the song together with Fredrik Mattsson (younger brother to Andreas Mattsson with whom I wrote “Looking for a life”) . Fredrik, by the way, recently became somewhat unexpectedly famous for this.

Lastly, I want to take the opportunity here to say a big thank you for spreading my music to Misty Music who administers my publishing entity Strong Melody Publishing ( ) and to their U.K. partner AGSync who made this reality.

But above all I want to thank LOVEFiLM for a great choice of music and I happy to say I was already a happy customer of yours – now even happier!
