View my complete profile. Interview with David Nevue: How Do I Do it All? A friend of mine asked me this question last night How do you have so much energy?
What do you think it is that sustains your energy? Wow, what a question.
It’s nice to know that I am perceived this way. I don’t know that you’ll like my answer as it’s going to sound a little cliche Everything I do in music really is an expression of my faith ultimately.
I see myself as a servant of the Most High King I believe that God has given me certain gifts And since I believe God designed me specifically to do these things, I sehet like these things are a part of my “purpose. And it’s that joy that keeps me going. But sometimes, it can still be a struggle to stay motivated when I am doing things that don’t obviously seem to be a part of my “purpose.
So really, I find that a lot of my prayer time is asking God to lead me, and to give me patience to wait for Him to reveal his plan for me, because I don’t nwvue see it. And being content mudic all things, in all situations, bad and good, is not an easy thing to do. But the longer I live, and the more nevke my life that I have lived, the more I look back and see how God used everything even what I perceived as bad to bring me to aflls I am now And seeing that also gives me the strength to keep on going.
Each day that musiv have is a gift from God. Every moment we have with our family is a gift. And so in all things, I try and take those gifts and give them back to God. And doing that requires an heart of thankfulness I am typing stream of conscious here a little bit To sum it up I have a lot of joy in what I do because I see God’s purpose in it and because I try to give every moment back to God in thankfulness.
And the more I see God’s hand in my life, the more that encourages me to keep on going, even when I feel like I sometimes don’t have the physical or emotional strength to do so. And if I fall down on one particular day more days than I likeI just start over again the next one, because God’s mercies are new every morning Check out Ephesians 2: I particularly like the NASB translation So as God’s artwork, I think we are happiest when we do the things He crafted us to do.
When we are out of His purpose for us, we are completely out of sorts So truly, without Jesus we are “lost,” wandering aimlessly from one thing to another I’m going to go and submit to my purpose, which at this moment is practicing the piano! The Story of the Album This album really feels like a capstone. Like the final icing on a “David Nevue” cake.
I don’t know that I can ever outdo this. I am so thankful to God for my life He has been so good to me All around are blessings.
And so, now that we are only a month or so out before many of you begin to hear the music, I thought I would share the liner notes with you Out Under the Open Sky I have always been rather prolific when it comes to writing music. No matter where I am in life or how busy I am, I can’t seem to stop the flow of new material that comes bursting from my soul.
So even though I spent most of my creative time between and arranging and recording hymns and praise songs for my Adoration and Revelation album projects, I continued to compose my own original music on the side. ByI had a stockpile of original works that I was anxious to record and release.
Songs from that “stockpile” finally started to see the light of day in when I announced A Delicate Joya cheerful album of light, bright music. That album featured all the “sweet, peaceful, happily-ever-after” style tunes that I had composed but not released up to that point. Once that was finished, I was left with a dozen songs that didn’t fit into the Delicate Joy concept It’s those remaining compositions plus a few new ones that now make up this album, Open Sky.
Open Sky begins with the title track, which to me feels a little like the “Wild, Wild West. I picture myself out on the open road, driving with the windows down, enjoying The Sound of Sunshine and the amazing landscape around me. It is a celebration of those “wide awake moments” when you feel truly alive, almost as if you were somehow standing a little closer to heaven.
Dragonflies and Butterfly Dance are basically musical paintings. Two flying creatures, two very different moods. When our family visited the Badlands in South Dakota, dragonflies flitted about everywhere, zipping to and fro.
Dragonflies is an attempt to capture that cadence. As for Butterfly Danceduring a visit to Yellowstone, I watched a butterfly dance its way around a dozen boiling, steaming mud pits. That picturesque moment stayed with me. Butterflies are such carefree creatures. For the Beauty of the Earth is a hymn arrangement and the first of four “cover songs” on the album.
The tune just struck me one day and I started exploring it on the piano. It seemed appropriate to include. Forgotten Places takes me back a few years to when I took my family on a self-guided tour of abandoned churches and ghost towns in Eastern Oregon.
There’s something quite sobering about visiting places that have faded away into history. As you walk among the empty, broken buildings, you can almost feel the weight of time.

Undertow was composed in and was originally part of a soundtrack I wrote on synthesizer for a theater production of C. Lewis’ book, “The Screwtape Letters. I first performed Scarborough Fair as an improvisation with two other pianists at a concert in Albuquerque, NM. I liked what I came up with so much, I just had to keep working on it. It’s really fun to play! As for Summer Rainit reminds me of my time living in Colorado, and those summer afternoon storms that would quickly appear, pour down rain and lightning, and then disappear all in the space of about an hour.
Distant Thunder is an improvisation left over from my Revelation recording sessions. I just happened to be recording when the “accident” happened.
When my wife heard the tune, she commented that she could hear distant thunder in the piece. I thought that was the perfect image for it. Twister is a real challenge to perform.

You can’t fake your way through the song or play it half-heartedly. It only works if you go for it! One of my happiest achievements with this album was to finally get a recording of Treasuge that I was mostly satisfied with. Swirling and intense, it’s a real finger-twister! The Water is Wide is my take on the traditional English melody. I’ve always liked the tune. Haunting, dreamy and pensive. Dark Afternoon was composed in the late ‘s.
The tune was originally called Nails as it represents Jesus’ dark afternoon on the cross. The composition was part of a nevuue Passion Play that I performed on a few occasions for Easter and Lent.
An early recording of this song was released in on a short-run CD called Foreshadows.
Only a few copies of that CD were ever made, so if you happen to own one, treasure it. Echo Canyon is the newest piece on this collection, written just a mysic before I went into the studio to record this album.
I was nevke around on the piano and my son walked in and said “I really like that Five minutes later my daughter walked in and said the exact same thing. At that point, I decided to try recording the song. The key to this composition working at all are the dynamics.
They add a sense of mystery, power and treaaure. To me, it feels like walking in a very ancient, remote place. Stargazing takes me back to a late night road trip across the Utah desert with my family. The night sky was as clear as I’d ever seen it, so I pulled off the highway onto a secluded road and woke up the kids.
