Discovery: David Neil Crabtree

David Neil Crabtree is an Americana artist from right here in North Yorkshire. Hailing from Whitby, his new track Wildfire was recorded live at Leeds College of Music.

By Graeme Smith

Wildfire is a raw and emotional track. It opens with an echoing electric guitar refrain before David’s gruff, country-style vocals come in. It all builds to the climax of the chorus where David delivers.

There’s a classic feel to David’s music and he has garnered comparisons with Eric Clapton, John Mayer and Larry Carlton. If you love an emotional singalong, Wildfire is for you. Check out the lyric video for the track below.
