Roy Orbison – Lonely Blue Dreams
Escape into a Legendary Celebration of Roy Orbison Hits. Lend your ears to exceptional new Roy style songs found in dreams.
So many troubled hearts have found refuge in the Roy’s vulnerable voice and writing. His operatic style calms and empowers. His hits catalogue unequaled. Roy stands alone among the legends of all time. David K sings Roy’s multi-octave range beautifully and with power. His stage presence, wit and passion within this tribute shine. His band excellent, his string players employ precision and feel.
At lockdown, a flash back. In L.A. in 1992 David K was asked, “You a songwriter?” He answered, “Yes.” “Send me a song,” the man said, sharing his card. That night David wrote, “It Was A Mistake,” Roy style, and sent it to the late Orbison’s manager. Locked down decades later, David K rehearsed daily, waking nightly to a voice crooning in his head, “Pretty Woman”… or “Crying.” He begged Roy to quit so he could sleep. Roy persisted. One night, the haunting tune was “Lonely Blue Dreams…” “Stop it, Roy,” David said. “Wait… is that you Roy?” 1/2 awake, guitar in hand, David captured the song. Had Roy sent it? Time stood still as he wandered dreamscapes catching songs like snow wafting in the night. Would Roy send more?
Lock down lifts, an album of 5 Roy hits and new dream songs appears, as performances return. David K feels compelled to share this legend, and also, these dream songs. 1 set, dressed all in black, the band overwhelms you with endless Roy hits you forgot he sang or wrote! The next set, escape into a dream, lose yourself in unexpected unique effects, corresponding video and a dream vibe all in color shades of blue. Here Roy’s best mixed with David K’s newest.
