Late Friday Updates!

New IG Stories from David!

David explains that their car has broken down and won’t be fixed until tomorrow (Saturday.) While waiting, he shows us a little “Hula” and some cool shades! *note~ David looks great in cool shades but you most likely won’t find him with Maui Jim’s or Ray Bans~ Nope, David is just fine with sunglasses <$10!  (I’m with David on this one!) πŸ˜‰

And via a minuscule “tag” in one of the frames, we learn that Mama Lupe is also with them! πŸ™‚ Watch below and look for “tagged Mom” in the background!

Kalei caught that little Hawaiian Hula Dancer thrown in there! πŸ˜‰

Kalei tweets about David in Canada as he shares a Hawaiian Hula Dancer.

David With a Sweet Tweet for Patty-Ann & Linda!!!

These sweet tweet/responses are few and far between these days! Patty-Ann shared a tweet with David re: her approval of the Leo snippets and David offered thanks to her and Linda!!! (Linda had RT’d the original tweet and me thinks that David, as he follows Linda on twitter, must also see tweets that she has liked along with RT’s 😘. It’s wonderful to have that connection present!!!

Leo !!!! Preorder on Amazon: Setlist and Snippets! YAY!!

The internet erupted with cheers and tweets last evening with the discovery of David’s upcoming Leo Ep (release date 8/25) found posted and available for pre-order on Amazon!!!  Nothing up on iTunes yet but we’ll continue to check and announce when we see it posted! πŸ™‚

Leo EP listed on Amazon Music for pre-order

Seeing the reality of Leo complete with snippets to whet our ears and excitement was wonderful!! As anticipated, “I’m Ready” is there; a lovely song we’ve been introduced to with live performances over the past year, but with much more complexity and layering in the studio 30 second snippet! Then an additional 3 new songs!

“Other Things in Sight”

~ Ohhhh I love love LOVE the groovy vibe of this song!!! ~David’s giving us some great self affirmation lyrics along with just a little- bit- ‘o- sass! Yes sireee! Love it! I’m moving and swaying already!! SO SO GOOD! Along with “Numb,” this song is another collaboration with Trent Dabbs.  πŸ™‚ Remember this twitter exchange from 2014??


“This-is-not-your life…it’s not your call-to-make-this-time”

“I just want a little more breeze, a little more ease, a little less people I can’t please got other things in sight in mind~

Give me a little more faith- a little more space- a little more room for my mistakes~ got other things in sight in mind~”

“Someone to Love”

“~and I had to learn to love -something had to change” <—not sure I have every word correct in the complete snippet but this line is clear~ Someone to Love is definitely peaking my interest… it seems to be a self enlightening song about growth and what needs to change if one is to move forward and let walls down. 

“I’m Ready”

We’ve heard David perform this song alone at the piano over the past year beginning at Tuacahn. The bridge gets me every time…tugs at my heart as David pleads

“~either way I’ll give it all I’ve got~ cuz I only got one life to live ~ yeah I only got one life to give & I know it’s gonna change the ending ~ I’m ready I’m ready for a change I’m not afraid to lose and leave it all behind~ and I know~ that I can’t see around the bend but if I let you in (I know I’ll be all right.)

And not included int the snippet, but that bridge~ “hold me just a minute~ hold me just a minute won’t you hold me just a minute…”  Now in this 30 second studio snippet there is an additional layering of vocals and more dimension. Wondering if we’ll get that same gripping angst in the bridge with the studio version or maybe even more? Looking forward to hearing it!

“Spotlight Down”

Some of you may remember being introduced to this song in a little snippet that was posted on one of the collaborators Instagram accounts well over a year ago before it was subsequently removed. Isabeau Miller’s if I remember right?

These few lines certainly show raw emotion and honesty… an acknowledgement and a quiet growing strength~

 “~I’m stronger now so turn the spot light down~ I can’t live a life on display watching every move that I make this world’s not a stage it’s been remade~

Seems we’re moving too fast waiting for the curtains to crash I’m standing now”

The more I listen to these snippets, the more I’m feeling that Leo is a great title for this Ep: a display of inner strength, personal growth, and the heart of a lion.

And I have to say that yesterday was the perfect day to receive Leo snippets as it was World Lion Day! Thank you Deb for the heads up on this one!! πŸ™‚ 

tweet from Debz416 re World Lion Day and Leo Ep

The Leo Preorder and Snippet posting on Amazon caused quite the stir on twitter!

Shelley’s daughter is excited, too! 😘

What are your thoughts about the Leo snippets?? Do you have a favorite based on these 30 second gold nuggets? Hopefully the iTunes posting will come soon and we’ll be indulged with those longerrrrrr 1:30 song clips. Until then, we’d love to hear your preliminary thoughts on Leo in the comments!

Road trip to Canada!πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

We haven’t heard from David himself , but his sisters are very good about sharing! 😘 David, Amber, and Jazzy are in Canada! David’s been in Canada a few times recently and I fully expect him to now add more “eh’s” along with his “y’alls” in conversation.  πŸ˜†

 What is the specific purpose of this excursion? Not sure, but my guess would be that David wanted his sisters to see the Sherlock production his friend Denny composed the music for before it closes on August 21! πŸ˜‰ Denny is a guy of many talents; he’s even a chipmunk whisperer it seems! πŸ˜…

Here is a combined IG story vid of Amber and Jazzy’s adventure shares yesterday as they crossed through Browning MT and on into Alberta! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦  Food, flags, and a CUTE CHIPMUNK!! lol

Shanelle captured the lovely “stills” for us! Thank you, Shannelle!

And Kalei had the prize response to their Canada “Waffleton” choice!!🀣

  1. Thank you Joanie really enjoyed reading today’s post! I’m so excited for more new music, couldn’t sleep last night & listened to the snippets at least 20 times trying to learn the words & because I love David new music! Of course I love all his music. Other things in sight is toe tapping! Like all of them! Thank you for the words to the snippets.

    • Joanie/ suttygal in MN says:

      Thx for your kind words, Linda.❀️❀️❀️
      I’m really loving the snippets, too.

  2. CJ says:

    Thanks for the new post! Loving the snippets.

  3. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Just love all these snippits…..especially Other Things in Sight…..hope David and his sisters are enjoying their time together in Canada….nothing like family vacation time……Hope those tour dates are announced soon!!!! Miss Vicki

  4. missbianca says:

    DAVID AND THE SEATTLE SYMPHONY!!!!!!!!! I’m not excited or anything. Oh who am I kidding, I squealed out loud when I read this. We used to have half-season tickets to the Symphony but have not seen them in too long. I’m Ready …

    • missbianca says:

      Oh wait! This is not the Seattle Symphony. This is the Ensign Symphony which performs in Seattle at the same symphony hall as the Seattle Symphony (great, great acoustics!). https://www.seattleensign.org/ I’m sure they will be excellent concerts, but we have never seen them perform. The theme for David’s concert is “Glorious.”

      • kimk says:

        is this a lds concert?

        • kimk says:

          never mind looked it up sure it will be nice hope for videos πŸ™‚

        • missbianca says:

          The group’s website does not say explicitly that they are LDS, but the themes they are using, the artwork, the fact that all positions are volunteer (but they can afford a very pricey venue), and that MoTab is the first thing on their list of “in the tradition of’s” all suggest the group is LDS.

          If they are, or if most members and leadership are LDS, I feel sad that they feel they can’t say so on their web site. Do they face that much religious intolerance even in this notably tolerant part of the country? I shouldn’t speculate.

      • sydnie says:

        One of my tour buddy niece lives in Seattle, think I’ll be able to attend! 😁

  5. kimk says:

    heard a new song by Pink today pretty cool
    P!nk – What About Us (Lyric Video)


    looking forward to the video spunky gal that one

  6. kimk says:

    P!nk – Get The Party Started

  7. Alwaysafan says:

    I loved Davids Instagram stories, trying on sunglasses, such a goof ball at times:) looks like they’re stuck for the night since their car broke down.

  8. sydnie says:

    Thank you Joanie, I love this wonderful post!
    Great news about LEO but I can’t preorder from Amazon….I had to close my account after it kept getting hacked, I tried to use another account but messed up on the passwords to make long story short I don’t have access to Amazon anymore until I sort things out blergh.
    I’ll purchase from iTunes definitely when available! πŸ˜„

  9. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys! A SPECIAL Saturday to all!

    Thanks Joanie for the “Other Things in Sight” post! EXCITING times ahead! Really looking forward to what’s coming! Preordered, now the wait! πŸ™‚

    ENJOY your day! πŸ™‚

  10. kimk says:

    miss bianca about the group I don’t think so looked up their FB page they perform at lds stakes and such so I suppose they are. for me I am not interested in going like the TOFW shows.. they are not for me probably why most likely they didn’t put it in. more folks would go? for me just not into all that their thing just not for me. hoping their is a show out east.. hoping there are small venues like the Troubadour again that is me. ha kicking fun with David on fire! πŸ™‚

    • missbianca says:

      I’m with you, Kim, although I will go to the Ensign Symphony event. It’s only about 10 miles from my home. Benaroya Hall is exactly across the street from the Triple Door.

      Hoping with all my heart for the East Coast.

      • kimk says:

        that is close.. me too dang give us maybe Nashville then?
        really don’t understand he used to come close so much before his mission 😞

  11. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey kimk….I hope he has a concert in Nashville too….We have family down there and we could kill two birds with one stone…..just love all the snippets….so so hoping for him to come East……Love David trying on sunglasses…..he looks so cool in sunglasses….maybe he wears them all the time to go incognito…….Miss Vicki

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Hello Miss Vicki! Sure not beach weather lately! lol A Nashville concert or two would be GREAT…hope I can go if and when! πŸ™‚

  12. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys! ENJOY your day! πŸ™‚

  18. Barb (@EL_FOD) says:

    Just popping in to suggest a new FOD banner, maybe for the new year coming up? I think with David’s release of his EPs and the tour, it may be a good time to refresh it. Unfortunately, don’t have any suggestions for it right now, but I’ll put my thinking cap on. πŸ˜‰ Gracias for all you do, FOD team!

  19. Barb (@EL_FOD) says:

    What was I thinking? Of course I have a suggestion for a new banner. In fact, it was staring right at me on my desktop! That recent black and white photo of David that everyone is going gaga over!
