The new album, "Double Mind" is a collection of songs written and developed while maintaining a busy touring schedule across Europe and North America. Entirely self-financed and produced, the album embraces a diversity of genres from the past while at the same time managing to sound completely fresh and current. The songs are a lyrical and musical reflection of timeless and various topics; everything from lost and new-found love to the rigors of being a working, independent artist and all points in between. Themes of "pay-it-forward" thinking, insecurity, confidence, humour, and sardonic wit abound. Overall, the mood is joyously optimistic with more than it's share of instantly memorable and compelling songs which captivate and stay with you after just one listen. This album proves once again that David Celia is an innovative and relevant artist, consistently growing and challenging himself.
