‘just the way that I am’ • BUY NOW

Dave Insley’s fourth solo release, Just The Way That I Am, shows him in peak form—recording with some of Austin’s finest musicians, writing with maturity and confidence, and singing like the damn church is on fire!  His songs form a carefully crafted story-arc, exploring the outposts of love, remorse, heartbreak, nostalgia and hope, all set before crumbling backdrops of honky-tonks and hotel rooms. The album offers shuffles and ballads, of the style Dave is known for, and the natural flow of his story-songs reflects his tastes and skill.  Check out MP3 samples on the Music page by clicking here.

Dave’s previous album releases are West Texas Wine (2008), Here With You Tonight (2006), and Call Me Lonesome (2005).  He has lived in Austin, Texas for ten years, but also claims Arizona as his lifelong home.  Dave’s unique songwriting and deep baritone have earned him a reputation as one of the Southwest’s most original artists, and as one of the region’s most authentic country voices. You can buy his CD’s at your favorite record store, or click here to purchase online.
