Dave McPherson Announces Debut Solo Album

On speaking about the announcement Dave said “Your support for InMe & my solo work has been consistently overwhelming, so I’ve decided to team up with PledgeMusic to offer you access to a range of unusual and one off treasures that go much further than the usual way artists connect with their fans.”

During his time writing and performing with InMe, Dave has scored a Number One in the UK Rock Charts when he was just 20, played the Main Stage of festivals such as Leeds/Reading, and toured the world – sharing stages with Deftones, Serj Tankian, Feeder, Biffy Clyro, Pendulum and many more. Like the aforementioned Tankian, and the likes of former Million Dead frontman Frank Turner, McPherson is now ready to step out on his own properly as his band enter a new phase following their ‘Best Of’ release.

Flying solo, however, is nothing new to Dave – armed with an acoustic guitar and a disciplined hard work ethic he’s been touring anywhere and everywhere since 2007 and has played over 700 shows. The difference now is that, as opposed to a collection of self-released EP’s that provided snapshots of Dave’s songwriting ability, he has recorded his debut album with a sound that is rich and pure, exploding with feeling and honesty. McPherson has lived and breathed music since childhood, drawing influence from artists such as Talk Talk, Loudon Wainwright III, Pink Floyd, Damien Rice, Amos Lee, Counting Crows & countless other vibrant artists. He is now ready to forge an identity of his own outside of the band that he has dedicated himself to over the past few years.

The album itself sits Dave and his acoustic guitar comfortably at the forefront of a wondrous wall of instrumentation. Recorded by the enigmatic upcoming studio wizard Mike Curtis at CDS Studios, the pair’s unique production method adds to the overall honesty of ‘The Hardship Diaries’.
A full headline tour will coincide with the album’s release in March 2011 and Dave McPherson’s unique voice will continue to be heard by aficionados of melody, true passion and all things euphonic!
