Subtle and simple truths and observations are the backbone of david m. bailey's latest release, "One More Day." This is a philosophical, reflective offering, providing no profound insights but rather, thoughtful reminders of the overlooked beauty and unacknowledged grace that surrounds us daily.

On "Simple Things," bailey amply displays this viewpoint:

"As They Do" adds that we too often overlook and maybe unfortunately outgrow looking at the world through the vantage point of a child's eyes: "State Of Mind" carries on the idea of looking at the world just a bit differently than most: "Letting Go" is a sweet but powerful story of need and desire ultimately triumphing over history and hesitation: bailey also covers the sentiments and feelings of falling in and being in love in "Angola By The Bay," "And You" and "When We're In Love." "One More Day" admonishes not to take life and time for granted--it's not a given so cherish this wondrous gift.

This release offers backing with bass, violin, saxophone, violin and drums and percussion but what is in the forefront here is bailey on vocals and guitar. bailey's battle with brain cancer (it's currently in remission) certainly provided the grist from which he milled many of the cuts but these songs stand on their own, regardless of the source or motivation. Take a listen and take a look at your life.
