Singer Songwriter David Vaters
Between the potency of his richly detailed songwriting, his intensely emotional, soulful vocals David Vaters is a true musical treasure. Vaters had earned 10's of thousands of fans since his debut album Volume 1 - A Voice in the Wilderness release in 2017 and follow up release Volume 2 in 2018!
David Vaters released his latest studio endeavor. Entitled ‘Volume 2 - A Voice in the Wilderness,’ the album comes on the heels of Vater’s first volume of solo work which was released to critical acclaim in 2017, to date with over 10 million streams and views on digital music platforms. Infusing both Americana and Rock music with elements of alternative country, pop/rock, and, Vaters has quickly defined himself as a wholly unique talent quite unlike any other act in the music industry.
Huffington Post, stated, “David's music is creative and original, suffused with an ardent spiritual awareness rare in today’s music industry.” ‘Volume 2’ boasts most of the same impressive line-up as its predecessor, a collaboration that had critics calling ‘Volume 1’ “nothing if not mature, deftly crafted and powerful.” Like that album, ‘Volume 2’ will be part of Vaters’ ‘A Voice in the Wilderness’ collection of volumed records.
Vaters is currently is stating to get radio play including BBC radio, Sky 1 Radio in the UK and radio stations in the USA. David's video's have 100's of thousands of views on YouTube!
Many independent artists that enjoy substantial critical acclaim are met with a less enthusiastic, niche audience. Vaters defies the norm in this regard, as his genre-spanning style as a song writer has landed him on a number of notable charts. Volume 1 achieved over 6 million music streams on digital music platforms within just 12 months.
From his #1 worldwide Christian music position on ReverbNation to charting on iTunes rock charts in Australia and Mexico, Vaters has proved his relevance as a up and coming talent to take note of. Despite these two recent collections of music marking Vaters’ solo debut, he’s anything but green.
David stated in a recent radio interview in Athens, Greece, "Musically I would have to say that listening to the classic rock of Tom Petty, Travelling Wilbury's, Lennon, Neil Young, Springsteen and even Bowie really are the influences that i draw from and where i come from stylistically."
He added, “lyrically, my faith is a huge part of my life so obviously that comes out. I don't force it into my music, but my songwriting does come out of my personal and life experiences. And that’s really no different than any other artist including artists that have christian beliefs like Bono, Justin Bieber or Carrie Underwood to name a few.
So, people pick up on what they want to pick up on and its really cool when i hear from people who connect deeply to one of my songs. That alone makes me just want to make good music that has a relatable message that people can draw encouragement and hope from. So, I kinda just sow good seeds into people and that’s really what its all about.”
The veteran performer and songwriter honed his skills for many years recording on both sides of the Atlantic. Now on his own, Vaters has called upon colleagues to help his creative vision unfold. Some of the industry’s finest talent is on display on these albums, including musicians who have worked with the likes of Vince Gill, Peter Frampton, Kenny Loggins, Amy Grant, and others.

As Jamsphere.com recently stated, “A Voice In The Wilderness Volume 1” may be the best, most influential debut Americana album produced by any independent musician in the past decade, if not longer.
“If this is the first album of his out of the starting blocks, at least in a titular sense, imagine what gems are likely to follow,” raved Dave Franklin of Los Angeles - The Plug.
David’s next project is focused on being high-energy, genre defying and taking a progressive approach to creating sounds and styles that are reminiscent of classic records, with his own special sauce of 'spirituality and human condition' placed on top of it. Clearly drawn from his life experiences and personal beliefs with a reliance that resonant with his growing fan base.
