When previewing Dave Nachmanoff’s stellar upcoming album, Spinoza’s Dream, I kept circling back to “Never Enough.” It felt as though the sound had its own gravitational pull and I was caught in orbit. The track brilliantly melds folk traditions with an array of vintage rock flavors, setting the stage for Dave to weave a story. If you are at all familiar with Dave’s work, you know that it is in the role of storyteller that he thrives.
Here’s what Dave had to say about “Never Enough” -“This is the only song here that was not written specifically for the album. I wrote it in the 80s, but as the original lyrics were trite, I set it aside and forgot about it. However, I always liked the music. So I asked Al Stewart to rewrite the lyrics and he came up with new verses which made the whole song much more interesting.”
Set to release in May, Spinoza’s Dream pays homage to a particular philosopher with each track. It seems only fitting when you consider that Dave has a Ph.D in philosophy from University of California, Davis. Combining his innate musical talents with his line of study is a natural next step in his progression. This spring Nachmanoff will also be doing his first solo European tour to promote the new album.
