“Loud Talker” by David Vertesi – A Song Review

Contributor: Karen M.

     Certain songs serve as reminders to take a long car ride with no particular destination in mind, take your dog to the beach and listen to waves, or sit with a friend in silence and knowing familiarity.  ‘Loud Talker’ by David Vertesi promises to be your faithful companion during these times.  The song starts with playful whistling, moves into sultry baritone vocals, greets you with stripped down guitar, and then surrounds you with harmonies.  This song seamlessly transports the listener into a simpler, easy life.  It’s been a constant companion for me the past week.
     David Vertesi is a Vancouver (Canada) based multi-genre artist - he is 1/3 of the indie-pop trio Hey Ocean! and has collaborated with Shad K, Jose Miguel Contreras (By Divine Right), Hannah Georgas and more. "Loud Talker" is the first single from his upcoming solo album, to be released in 2015.
     David had this to say about the song: 
"'Loud Talker' is one of those songs that just wrote itself. I basically sang the whole thing on the floor of a friend's basement after a really simple but amazing summer evening. As life becomes faster and faster paced I find it isn't the birthdays, career advances, or life accomplishments that are most memorable, but the rare moments when things stand still and I can just be. When the water is calm, there's nothing to do, nowhere to be, and nobody to call — those are the moments I long for."
