Late Monday Additions!
Hiking buddies~ International Love & Sibling Style
“My brother and I went on a hike a couple of weeks ago. It was sooo beautiful but soooo hard (for me). We had to take more than just a couple of stops, so it took a while. But it was worth it. My brother was so patient with me, as he always is. It made it an enjoyable hike for me to be on.”
This photo from Amber’s (public) IG was shared on twitter. Amber is such a sweetheart and sure loves her siblings who offer both hiking support and great advice! So cute the way they were sporting some “International Love!” David may have left “a little part of his heart” in Canada this past May, but he’s proud to wear the Canadian Maple Leaf on his head!! ❤️ You can find the complete IG post by CLICKING HERE.

Collaboration Update: James The Mormon and David ~ “Workin’”
Good to be back in Utah for the weekend! Stealing this picture from James. This is a good and talented man. Pleasure to collaborate on your project and hang with you, my friend! And excited to hear how the song goes. 👍🏼 #Repost @jamesthemormon ・・・ "We out here grindin, we workin" Making music wit dis dude 💯💣 New song coming soon 🙌🏾 📷 : @thesamwilder

Now jump to this past Saturday when James The Mormon, Thom Reed, Big Budha, and others began sharing pics, tweets, updates, and clips from the filming of the music video for “Workin’ . **Thanks, too, to Janel for the heads up!** ” Thom Reed shared a live facebook segment during his cast instructions and filming of the video! Watch below and listen for David singing! He is smooooth and his voice sounds so good!!! Love that little riff where he “works it” up to that higher place!
I think I can speak for all the fans when I say we hope to hear more of David in the final cut of “Workin’”! Didn’t see him in any of the shots shared from the mv filming and as David is listed as being “featured”, I’m wondering if his recorded part will be THE place to listen for him in this collaboration? Hoping though that we’ll also see plenty of him in the vid! We’ll soon see as August 8th is just around the corner!

Listen for it~ “We out here grindin’ we workin’! Looks like it will be released on August 8th!
Big Budha was also excited to share!
The filming got quite lively as this clip from Thom Reed shows us:
Kid history shared a clip with a different perspective! Actually, it looks like there were many perspectives filmed as many cell phones were held high and recording!

Thom also shared a “cast” pic as the shoot for the MV was wrapping up. No sign of David anywhere, but as he is “featured” on the track, listening for his golden voice (and now perfected rapping) could be the best place to hear him!
JamesTheMormon shared some album art possibilities for the single~

Speaking of collaborations and David being “featured”…
David, Brooke White, and “Cherry Lane.”
My other favorite past David Archuleta “feature” and collaboration was with Brooke White in “Cherry Lane,” a single on her Pledge Music project for OUR Rescue. Every time I listen to their sweet little tune, I find myself longing to hear morrrre of David’s voice. It beautifully blends with Brooke’s while offering (her) melody that rich buttery understated harmony David so masterfully provides. * * * * * *
Jeff LeBlanc : Large Crowds & Standing Ovations!
Congratulations to Jeff LeBlanc now on Tour! David’s past MKOC tour opener Jeff Leblanc is out on tour around the country singing songs from his latest “Vision” album! Last week he played in David’s home state of Utah (SLC) to a 3K+ capacity crowd and was rewarded with standing ovation following the show!
And last night in Denver, Jeff was met with a similar response to the same size crowd!! This is so awesome for him!!!

Dave Filice on The Music Mentor Podcast:
“Staying grateful in life, in general, helps you have a better life and be grounded.” ~ Dave Filice
Ahhh the memories!!
David Filice (past base player for David in 2009) recently sat down with his friend Demian Arriaga to talk music and touring for a podcast segment of The Music Mentor. David is such a wonderfully talented musician and has many experiences along with words of wisdom to share. He is also one of the most caring and down-to-earth guys out there. He mentions touring with David Archuleta at least a couple of times in this podcast. Definitely worth a listen, so sit back & click below!

***Click below to head over to soundcloud to listen to Dave’s interview***
“On this week’s episode I get to interview someone who exemplifies professionalism, gratitude and musicality. Dave Filice is a phenomenal bassist and producer who has worked with people such as Bono & The Edge, Richie Kotzen, David Archuleta, The Rembrandts and more. He currently plays with DMC from run dmc and with The Party Crashers, one of the busiest and best corporate bands you’ll find. Hear Dave talk about his career, about playing with legendary musicians, his take on authenticity and his experience during that ill fated show in Rhode Island with Great White.”
Because we love Dave, good memories, and celebrating Christmas in July, please indulge me…and sing along! Feliz Navidad en Julio ;D vid credit DJBell

Slow Days & Summer “VACAYs!”
The end of July is upon us and as David is (most likely) busy finishing up his music project! YAY!!! It’s currently s-l-o-w on the news front, so we (MODS) will take advantage over the next few weeks and grant ourselves a little vacation. We’ll be a little quieter here on the front page and on facebook with DavidFTFOD, but we’ll definitely bring you all breaking news as it presents! We hope you’re all enjoying some summer sunshine and relaxation capped off with David’s music!
