Wow! What a journey this last year and a half has been! Both for my music as well as in our life. There is so much to be thankful for and yet the struggle is very, very real. The lyric that started this whole song is "I don't want to do this anymore". That came out of a rather intense conversation between Alicia and I late one night in the middle of dealing with some major challenges that we were facing in our family. The reality is life sucks sometimes and all of us can relate to the fact that some days we just don't want to do it anymore. Out of that night, the countless conversations I have had with people as they struggle doing life on planet earth, and the hope found in the "relentless power" available to the entire human race, this song was born. I hope you find yourself identifying with this song, and from the ashes that remain of what's "left of us", we rise in the strength of the "Power that nothing can stop" to "be the change we want to see". May that be your anthem as you sing along and share this song with everyone you know. If you would like to talk more about those realities, I’d love the opportunity to do that. Just shoot me a message via the contact form below! Alicia and I love you all!
My name is Dave Mead. I started my journey in music as a kid traveling around with my parents who were singer/songwriters. I have always loved music! For me it has been a way to connect with things that tend to lie deep within the soul of humanity and get them out. Music inspires me, motivates me, and gives me clarity. It taps into emotions like love, joy, peace, sorrow, loss, and pain. It gives hope to the hopeless, healing to the hurting, peace for the anxious, and love for the lost and lonely. Because of this, writing music has become a way for me to remind myself of what is most important and motivate me to do whatever it takes to keep fighting for it. I began sharing some of this with people and to my shock, what had been created for my personal benefit was now having an impact on others as well. For the last 10 years I have been performing as a solo artist as well as with a band. I’ve played in about every venue under the sun. For crowds of 5-10 people, to crowds in excess of 8000. Opening for bands like Sanctus Real, Josh Wilson, Bluetree, and Chris Tomlin, as well as festivals like Big Ticket Festival. In all of these contexts my passion for people and music have driven me to create high quality environments that result in opportunities to take a look at who we are, why we are here, and where we are going. I look forward to joining you in the near future as we endeavor to discover the answers to these three questions.
