Dave Lebental is a singer-songwriter from Southern California. His sound is reminiscent of the singer-songwriters of the 1970s. He is a multi-instrumentalist who arranges and performs on the majority of the instruments used on his self-produced songs. Granite Meadow is his first release in the digital era. His love of nature-inspired the song. The music transports the listener to the tranquility of an alpine meadow. The Granite Meadow audio and film can be listened to and watched online at dlmusic.us.

In his latest video song, “Granite Meadow,” singer-songwriter Dave Lebental depicts some stunning natural imagery. Influences include The Beatles, James Taylor, The Grateful Dead, and more recent musicians such as Bon Iver, Lord Huron, and Dawes.
Great songwriting rapidly elevates and draws you in, followed by a fantastic blend of organic musicianship and clear pop kissed folk rock building blocks, as well as gorgeously unique, gently raspy, and identifiable vocals. In a nutshell, Dave Lebental checks off a number of boxes with this release.
Aside from the organic pop-flavored -rock arrangement, “Granite Meadow” is far from your typical country or songwriter offering, with a surprising vocal development and tone.
Weave in some subtly warped guitar and percussion work throughout the song, and “Granite Meadow” continually hikes to the beat of its own drum, supporting the notion with its creative voice and infusing genuine emotion every step of the way.
In particular, the final quarter makes sure that the hook lingers with the listener, thanks to Dave Lebental’s commitment to the melody, concept, and musicality, further highlighting this.
“Granite Meadow” is a lovely, timeless must-hear of sincerity and heart, and I eagerly await future releases.
