Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) February 21, 2014 -- The singer and songwriter known as David Klass has released his debut LP record, titled, "Stories of Love." The album is comprised of 11 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. A contemporary R 'n' B record with romantic themes and tones across a wide spectrum of listening tastes, "Stories of Love" stands to put David Klass on the music map as one of today's most intriguing piano-playing vocalists.
Klass lists a broad variety of musical inspirations that includes several legendary artists and notable facets of life. Among his favorite musicians are Prince, Michael Jackson, Jay Z, and Tupac Shakur. Interestingly enough, though, his secondary list of influences is much longer. He writes it in the following order: "Love, pain, passion, God, insanity, peace, light, darkness, 1980s, 1990s, fashion, poetry, film, art, death, dance, culture, realism, and nature."
That Klass's debut record should revolve around the concept of love is fitting for the mood, hue, and style of his songwriting and performances. While his playing and singing seem natural and intuitive to him on "Stories of Love," it is his knack for composition which makes the record stand out. His attention to lyrical quality is likewise an integral component to his sound.
He writes of the themes of his record, "There are so many different forms and ways to fall or be in love. I put cinematic storytelling in all my songs and each song explains the art of love. There is no right or wrong way to love. It just is."
David Klass has been writing music since the age of seven, and penned his first lyrics at 18. His producer, Collins "Jack Trades" Peters, has worked with the Black Eyed Peas, Bruno Mars, and Prince. Klass' "Hollywood Lover Dreams" track, which opens his debut LP, was chosen from thousands of entries by such judges as Sting and Rihanna as the official runner-up for their Song of the Year songwriting contest.
An official music video for "Out of Time" (Track 5) shot on location in such locales as Chichen-Itza, Playa Del Carmen, Riviera Maya and Tulum has been published for public viewing (link provided below). It is Klass's debut music video.
"Stories of Love" by David Klass is available online worldwide.
