Death Valley is singer-songwriter David Haerle’s second album following his 2018 debut Garden of Edendale. Death Valley’s marriage of guitar-driven rock to a shimmering California sound calls out to the best of classic American and British rock. Think Laurel Canyon meets Peter Frampton.
The songs track one man’s search for a renewal of spirit and his growing ability to find beauty and gratitude in the small miracles of daily life. The music is inspired by those moments of direct experience that make us feel we are part of a much greater whole.
Death Valley is a roadshow offering up memories of teenage heroes, love ballads and all-out jams lead by Haerle’s riotous guitar work that never fails to take the turns at high speed.
His early garage band roots have made way for a distinguished rock statesman. A veteran of the music business, Haerle heads up the L.A. based record company CMH Label Group where he continues to champion the independent spirit in music. Now he’s plugged in his Fender for a different kind of musical journey. The album is filled with poetic lyrics written at sunrise with an ear out for how he can showcase the skills of bassist/keyboardist Carson Cohen, and drummer Reade Pryor. “The chemistry between all members of the band, synching together in perfect harmony as Haerle sings…” will keep you driving and listening deep into the night.
Death Valley is an album for seekers, wanderers and grand adventurers.
