What people are saying about David Vaters and A Voice in the Wilderness Volume One ...
"What a total breath of fresh air! This record is unique and original, and full of an element seemingly missing in music in general, it is the honest heart cry of a man birthed from the soul of David Vaters, this recording is full of songs about real life. our struggles and victories, and even the grief of saying goodbye."
"It is my pleasure to recommend this collection of songs from one of the most original artist I've ever produced."
David Vest - Producer and Musician
"A very honest singer-songwriter album, with a Dylan-esque delivery of heartfelt lyrics to God,
to family, to friends...very refreshing to hear."
