Artist: David Cleveland
Album: Blessed Assurance
Label: David Cleveland
Over the past 30+ years that I have been working in Christian music, I have been blessed to meet and work alongside some of the most tremendously gifted musicians in the world. Among a select few of those whom I would consider to be supremely talented is guitarist, Dave Cleveland. If you are a fan and avid consumer of recorded music, you have undoubtedly heard Dave’s artistry many times over. He has played on countless recordings for hundreds of recording artists in the arenas of Christian, country, pop, rock, jazz, R&B, classical, and more. His musicianship is in a class by itself and is in highest demand around the world.
On par with his musicianship is Dave’s heart for God and the Church. His commitment to the Lord, his family, and others is a rare and shining light in the music community. One beaming example of Dave’s extraordinary heart is his latest instrumental release, Blessed Assurance. Inclusive of many of Dave’s favorite hymns, this album is artistic, inspirational, and moving.
With a passion to unite all generations in worship before the Lord, Dave has brilliantly compiled masterfully arranged and executed hymn arrangements that will touch the hearts of all ages. Treasured songs, like How Great Thou Art, Blessed Assurance, What A Friend We Have In Jesus, Just As I Am, and many others have been skillfully performed by Dave in a delightful gathering of acoustic guitar settings.
This abundantly refreshing album, available at iTunes, is one you certainly don’t want to miss!
