BILLBOARD:  For David Archuleta, ‘Winter’ Is Coming With New Tour and Album: Listen to ‘Christmas Every Day’by Fred Bronson

Winter will officially begin at 5:22pm EST on Dec. 21. But for American Idol alum David Archuleta, it will arrive with the Nov. 2 release of his new Christmas album, Winter in the Air.

The holiday set, on Shadow Mountain Records, is Archuleta’s eighth album overall and second holiday release, following Christmas from the Heart in 2009.

“When we finished my first Christmas album, we were already talking about recording another one,” Archuleta tells Billboard. “There’s always a place for it because there are so many great Christmas songs.”

Archuleta has long been a fan of Christmas music. Growing up in Utah, his parents would take him and his siblings Christmas caroling. “I was doing that even before I could talk,” he  remembers. “We’d sing ‘Feliz Navidad,’ ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas.’”
For Winter in the Air, Archuleta turned to some classic holiday tunes and co-wrote three originals. “I always wanted to record ‘Mary, Did You Know’ and I [had] wanted ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ on my first album. ‘Holly Jolly Christmas’ is one of my favorite Christmas songs. I usually listen to the Burl Ives version. For this album, I listened to Christmas albums by Michael Bublé and Nat King Cole. My producers’ goal was to get that sound with a big reverb board to capture the classic vibes of the ’50s and ’60s.”

While most Christmas albums are recorded in the summer in order to be ready for holiday season, Archuleta started work on Winter in the Air in January, while the weather was still cold in his new hometown of Nashville. “We had to cancel the original writing session because of a snow storm,” he says. When he rescheduled with songwriters Jeremy Bose and Cindy Morgan, they wrote what would become the album’s title track. “‘Winter in the Air’ was inspired by walking outside in the wintertime with the snow crunching under your feet,” he says.

Archuleta’s next writing session, with producer Cason Cooley and songwriter Isabeau Miller, was also cancelled because of an ice storm. But when they finally got together, they wrote “He Is Born,” one of the album’s more sacred songs. “I wanted to write a song honoring and praising Christ in his birth,” says Archuleta.

Archuleta wrote the first single from the album, “Christmas Every Day,” with Cooley and Dave Barnes. “It was inspired by Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ and Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Underneath the Tree’,” he says. “Music usually comes out of me at a slow tempo but I wanted an uptempo song.” The song features backing vocals by fellow American Idol alum, Melinda Doolittle. “I had lunch one day with Melinda and Kris Allen. Then I ran into a couple of Melinda’s friends while I was salsa dancing, and then saw another friend of hers on an airplane. So week after week, Melinda was on my mind. When we needed background vocals, I thought Melinda would be up for it. It’s the first time I’ve had a friend do backing vocals for me.”

After sessions with Cooley, Archuleta headed back to Utah to work with producer John Hancock, who helmed his 2009 Christmas album. “John added a guitar loop to ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman’ and it felt very Latin to me so I started singing in Spanish.” That led to Archuleta recording Spanish versions of several songs, including “In the Bleak Midwinter,” which his aunt translated into Spanish after they failed to find a Spanish version. A four-song EP of the Spanish renditions will also be released, says Archuleta, “all thanks to John doing ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ with Spanish guitar.”

Archuleta will support the new album with a tour that begins Nov. 26 in Los Angeles and runs through Dec. 21 in Richfield, Utah. “I’ve always loved being on the road, ever since my dad took me to California when I was 11,” he replied. “When I’m out on the road, I get to interact with fans again. It’s different from the social media experience. You can see how music changes their demeanors.”

It’s been 10 years since Archuleta competed on season seven of American Idol as a 17-year-old, a decade where he’s grown from a boy to a man. “When I was on American Idol I was still in high school and was just getting to the beginning of adulthood. Now I’m an adult. I have found my voice and I say what I’m thinking. Taking that two-year break to be a missionary helped me gain independence. I was submissive before. Now I put more importance on myself. Ten years ago I didn’t know if I wanted a music career. I thought I was going to finish high school and college and then figure out what I was going to do for a living. Now I understand why I want to do music and where I want to take my life. I always handed things over to other people. Now I am the master of my own life.”

YOU ARE A WHOLE NEW FEELING~David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Friday, March 9, 2018

As soon as he walked out onstage at Daryl’s House in Pawling last Saturday night, I knew he wasn’t the same David Archuleta that I left at Westbury seven years earlier. After not seeing him for a long stretch of time, the change in his stage presence was remarkable; I could not take my eyes off of him. The Livestream doesn’t do him justice.

Experience shows; he’s now like a well-oiled machine. His confidence level has risen and there’s now a subtle sophistication about him. Unlike other singers, David doesn’t just sing; he performs each song, with it’s own set of dance moves, particular to that song. And yet at the same time; he’s humble. An interesting combination of traits in one person; confidence, experience, sophistication and humility; a humility that only comes from within. Male or female, the audience loves him and gave him a standing ovation several times during the evening.

The small, sold-out venue gave way to an intimate performance, allowing David to lock eyes with audience members, as he delivered the messages of each song. At one point, he sang the last verse of “Crush”to a young girl in the front row, corner. When he walked away I glanced at her. She was overwhelmed, almost in tears. There was a bunch of older fans in the audience, too. We caught every change up in melody or lyric and every dance move and we responded with applause.

David’s talent is so diverse that he’s able to have a setlist comprised of different genres including ballads, rock, jazz, spiritual, Latin, pop and even songs from movie soundtracks. The medley of tunes he sang from “The Great Showman” movie was awesome!

My other new favorites are “Nunca Pense” – his Latin dance moves are killer and I love how his band provided boy-band type dancing backup…

I also loved the new finger-snapping in one of my early favorites “Invincible”.

“Thunder” was a powerful performance, too! And seeing him sing “Spotlight Down” before my eyes was a treasure. So many favorites!

It was a perk getting to see Marlie from The David Chronicles and SnowAngelz, Deb and Refnaf again! DJbell is such a hoot online and in person. For the fans, it was like no time had passed. ❤

I have no idea if David is interested in having a role on Broadway but from my perspective,  he looks ready. I can visualize him onstage in the play, “Dear Evan Hansen”. Anyone else?

Some things never change, especially the euphoric feeling you get when one of David’s shows is over. As I left the venue, that familiar feeling washed over me, reminding me that David Archuleta is truly one of the blessings in my life.

David Archuleta ~ The “Perfect” Valentine’s Day gift

Posted by bebereader on Wednesday, February 14, 2018

It’s here!

David’s and Nathan Pacheco’s duet of the cover of Ed Sheeran’s romantic ballad, “Perfect”!  What a sweet surprise!

Usually you can’t get me to stop talking about how much I like one of David new songs or performances. This time, I’m at a loss for words. I’ve loved “Perfect” ever since I first heard Ed Sheeran sing it on YouTube a few months ago. My first thought back then was I wish David would sing it because the best romantic song sung by the voice of the best singer in all the land is the recipe for pure magic.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Watch ‘American Idol’ Alum David Archuleta Duet With a ‘Voice’ Finalist (EXCLUSIVE) By  

American Idol” season seven runner-up David Archuleta and Madilyn Paige of “The Voice
season six explore the delicate intricacies of relationships with the release of a new video for the duet, “Seasons.” A gorgeous ballad from Archuleta’s 2017 release “Postcards in the Sky,” “Seasons” is a “relationship song,” Archuleta tells Variety.

Directed by Dusty Barker, the two Utah natives never face each other, but share the same story from different points of view. While Archuleta is bathed in the shadows of dark blue light, Paige is seen from a sunnier perspective — a directorial decision that perfectly underscores the theme of the song.

“It was one of the first songs written for this project, and I felt like the woman in the relationship is the hopeful one while the guy is really negative,” says Archuleta. “It seems like a lot of times it’s harder for guys to stay committed to something whereas women usually are the ones who keep pulling through to the end.”

Co-written with Stephanie Mabey and Dustin Christensen, Arhuleta paints a picture using the imagery of all four seasons set against a piano arrangement that leaves enough room for both singers to convey fear and hope simultaneously.

Archuleta says he thought Paige would be a perfect vocal match to join him on record after he came across her performances from “The Voice,” including her season six chair-turning performance of “Titanium.”

“I just loved how she was this vulnerable — you know first impressions — small girl and fragile.  Then I heard her sing this delicate version of ‘Titanium,’ and it really left an impression on me,” he says.

Intrigued, he looked up additional performances and then found a duet online, which sparked an idea to invite her to sing on his album. Says Archuleta: “She is a hopeful voice and that is her thing — she likes to help people know that they’re valuable because she deals with a lot of self-consciousness and issues and not feeling good enough, which is quite a theme today. And I love how she overcame it and was able to say I want to empower other people to help them know that they’re worth it. I thought what better voice for ‘Seasons’ where the message is this is worth it. This can work.”

Paige says that working with Archuleta felt natural. Both are from the same state, and both competed on national television shows. “We both know what it’s like to feel that pressure, and that competition,” she says. “It’s a whole other world.”

The two only met last year, but forged a friendship and toured together, with Paige opening for Archuleta in November, a night that he recalls included a standing ovation and a roaring crowd, both of which impressed him. The feeling is mutual. Says Paige: “I have so much respect for him and look up to him a lot. I’ve looked up to him since ‘Idol’ because he did that a few years before I did ‘The Voice.’ So he’s definitely been an example to me. He was the talk of the town, for sure, and to do a collaboration and feel like we’re supporting each other…it’s nice.”

Both artists aren’t slowing down in 2018. Paige is in the process of writing songs, while Archuleta is readying three projects—including a Latin project and another Christmas album. Plus, live shows, including a stop at Daryl Hall’s club, Daryl’s House, in Pawing, New York on March 3.

“I don’t know where I’m going next,” he laughs. “Ever since ‘American Idol,’ I have no idea where I’m going to go, but, I’ve enjoyed it. I’m always up for an adventure.”
