The album was created over the course of 2020, which was one of the more turbulent times in America’s modern history which is reflected in the sound and lyrics of the tracks.  We live in era where outrage and anxiety are profitable businesses. Charlatans Inc is what happens when consumerism meets tribalism.  News media is becoming increasingly motivated by profit to provoke emotional reactions out of people vs. reporting objective news to them, and the destructive impact this has on individuals and society.   Tracks such as “The Great Reset” address corporate money and....

lobbying that is behind political movements that appear to be standing up for the little guy by the media, but are actually the same wolves in different sheeps’ clothing.  Tracks like “Charlatans” compare Soviet disinformation campaigns called Active Measures with modern spin powered by big brands virtue signaling to a new generation of consumers.  Dave doesn’t just say these things from afar, having spent nearly 20 years in the advertising industry as an executive who helped brands shape public discontent and discord in order to foster things they can align themselves to.   Charlatans Inc culminates with the events of January 6 2021 and how this manipulation and conflict reduces ordinary unassuming people to anarchy.  

“I was driven to use this album as a platform to say something about the role consumerism played in provoking outrage and anxiety in the last year.   The media doesn’t want you to think, they want you to feel.  But as long as we can identify those things when we see them, we become immune and find real peace and harmony.

This is not a political album.  It’s about media and the importance to filter signals and understand when you’re being marketed to.  More than ever, your beliefs, your politics and your passions are all up for sale.  Buyers beware.
