Piuma is the brainchild of LA progressive musician David Small. A gifted multi-instrumentalist with a vision who carefully crafted his songs, playing all the instruments (guitar, keys, drums, bass, strings, synths). His self-titled debut EP is a sweet mix of catchy mainstream hooks augmented by plenty of nooks and crannies to appease the music geeks.
David Small is an optimist and a dreamer, but he isn't a preacher. He uses his music to show his love for the beauty of nature. The trees and the mountains are having a hard time to survive. Funky rock a la Robert Palmer (As Far As The Eye Can See) and mellow dreamy layered synth pop (Universoul) are not the answer to save the planet, but raising awareness is the first step. He is putting together a live band to perform his vision.
The Piuma EP is released on his own label Shining Light Records. CD, 12" vinyl (limited hand-numbered edition of 500 copies) and digital. Release: November 12th. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to TreePeople and all the manufacturers involved made donations to offset carbon emitted during the manufacturing process to make it a "eco-vinyl concept album".
