    Beautiful write up from The Cedar.

    Platinum-selling pop star David Archuleta doesn’t like attention, but he deserves yours.

    At 6 years old, Archuleta, who grew up on a steady diet of musicals like Les Misérables and Evita, developed a love for singing as a way to find solace in the comfort of his backyard. Before long, family, friends and neighbors started to notice, and at 9 years old, coaxed by the promise of free quesadillas, he was singing for crowds at a local restaurant. And in 2007, when the then-16-year-old (now 26), appeared on American Idol, the world started noticing.Receiving 44 percent of nearly 100 million votes, the shy, fresh-faced vocal prodigy was runner-up on the hit show’s seventh season, finishing behind David Cook.

    “I didn’t really want to pursue fame and stardom,” Archuleta, a devout Mormon, recalls. “But I felt like it was something I needed to do to fulfill one of the assignments I’d been given in my life.”

    A record deal with Sony/Jive Records, arena tours, a No. 2 single (“Crush”) on the Billboard Hot 100, acclaim from the likes Bruce Springsteen, Kelly Clarkson and Rihanna, and international fame followed. But even after running the gamut from Top 40 pop to holiday music on six studio albums and 21 singles, released over the past decade, including a two-year break from music to embark on life-changing missionary work in Chile for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the TV personality, bestselling author and former Star Search Junior Vocal Champion and one of American Idol’s youngest breakout wunderkinds was still just finding his voice.

    “I think American Idol, the whole process, from the momentum on afterwards, I never took time to slow down and think about who I was,” the singer says. “People wanted me to work in an adult world without growing up. … When I went on my mission, it was the first time that I took time to say, ‘Who am I? What do I want?’ “When I got back, I started doing music again, and that’s when I started working on this project.”

    He’s talking about a series of three four-song EPs that, due out over the course of this year (and later as a full-length LP with additional songs), starting with the May 19th release of Orion, combine to make a heartfelt artistic statement. Unburdened by the pressures and focus-group-think of industry handlers, yet set to pop tones sure to pleasantly surprise old fans and attract new followers to his already robust global fan base, it’s the first album the singer’s co-written and recorded as an adult.

    “The music is all about saying, ‘Wait a second, why am I doing this in the first place?’ ” Archuleta says, explaining where his head was at when he relocated to Nashville to start writing songs with Music City luminaries like Jeremy Bose, Trent Dabbs, Katie Herzig, producer Jamie Kenney and others. “It was therapeutic working with them,” Archuleta recalls. “I wrote these stories [my career so far]. … That was a great experience and I learned a ton, and now I’m here and I’m like, ‘Wow! I get to create music, but this time I have my own reason to do it.”

    “I connect to my songs more now than I ever have,” he goes on to say. “Before, my team had goals to fulfill; they didn’t really care about my story, they were just like, ‘Make sure you have enough love songs that we can release, because that’s what people want to buy.’ I’ve never been about romance and breakups and high school love and all that. I’ve always been about life, and self-introspection.”

    “I think I’ll take a second change,” Archuleta sings with a familiar bell-clear powerhouse croon on lead-off single “Numb,” an airy pop tune with a refreshing calypso feel that shows some of the Utah-by-way-of-Miami native’s Latin roots. The track premiered via Billboard last November.

    “This is like a new beginning,” Archuleta explains excitedly, saying he’s never felt so intrinsically fulfilled and electrified by his own music. “It’s not just taking another chance with music, it’s taking another chance on myself. … I need to be who I am or else I’ll go numb again.”

    Like with “Numb,” the theme of the anthemic “Invincible” turns the phrase its title suggests. “[It’s] about not having to be invincible,” Archuleta says. “I’ve felt too many times that I need to be perfect, I need to be invincible, I can’t show any weakness. But really, that’s what creates the battle with myself. … [Then I have to tell myself], ‘It’s OK, you can let go. Let the armor down. Put the sword away.’ ”

    That idea carries on through Orion’s “Up All Night.” It’s a dance-pop gem Archuleta wrote about a rural Tennessee fishing trip he took with a family he befriended. Coming during a rough patch he was having in Nashville, the trip gave the singer some much-needed perspective at a time when he was imposing a paralyzing amount of pressure on himself to prove himself.

    “They just cared about each other,” Archuleta says of the family. “Whoever I was, they just loved me and accepted me, and made me feel like a was a part of the family. … I felt whole again, I feel rejuvenated, and I went home and I couldn’t sleep that night. And all that happened was I went fishing with this family. I was like, ‘I have to get this feeling out of me.’ So I went over to the keyboard and [“Up All Night”] is what came out.” “Say Me,” a string-section-boasting ballad co-written with Bose and Dabbs, is another rumination on the singer’s battle for self-discovery.

    “I need you to say me,” the lyric goes. “That can be interpreted as a love song,” Archuleta admits. “I need you to say you, basically — believe in yourself. … There’s a difference between being prideful and cocky and believing in yourself.”

    After a decade under the discerning eyes of American Idol judges, TV viewers, record label know-it-alls and music critics trying to shape and define his identity, Archuleta has discovered he’s the only one who can find himself, and, with confidence winning out over self-doubt, that’s what he’s done on Orion. “These songs are about the struggle of finding your own voice and how hard it can be sometimes to believe in yourself. … I’m David. I’m the kid who always sat in his backyard, alone, singing to the cats. I don’t have to be cool, I just have to be David.”

    Hi all!

    Marlie, Yay you’re going! Hoping for a New York show but this one isn’t so far, it’s doable 🙂

    Bluesky, “Death defying” Forever is a favorite at my church. I have always loved it and not for a second did I ever imagine David singing it. No one at my church has ever sang it like this. Nathan P recorded it and I may not be very popular but he doesn’t come close to David’s rendition. I feel David’s heart and soul. I don’t know how he does it but darn he is something else.

    I’m Ready, wow, this recording in absolute perfection, it’s almost as good as David live. They have figured how to almost capture the essence of David’s voice. David said he’s involved in the production of his music now, I knew it would happen :), all this new music has his touch, he is a musical genius.

    Dayzee and Jans, Yay for tickets! Glad you two are hooking up for more concerts!

    Abrra, thank you for the puzzle and all the goodies!

  93. I’m not sure if this will post as it’s been a very long time since I’ve posted anything on a fan site. Situations and life circumstances bring about changes and new priorities. I just wanted to say I’m very, very impressed with David, his growth as an artist and his maturity, both personally and vocally. His EP’s are beautifully produced, Leo being my favorite of the two but as yet can’t decide which song is my favorite as they are all so good. I had the pleasure of attending one of his Christmas concerts last year with SandyBeaches, which reminded us of why we became fans of David almost ten years ago. We are hoping to attend one, maybe two shows on his tour if at all possible.

    David’s FB introducing his new songs on his new cd was a lot of fun. An hour and the time whizzed by. He explained what the last part of “I’m Ready” was about, which I was hoping because I didn’t understand what it was. He dedicated it to Ms. Schmidt, that was lost and passed away, because she helped him with it. It is David singing, but it doesn’t sound like him to me. All the songs are great and it was fun to see him just ad lib and be himself. His whole new album will be out on Oct 20, called Postcards in the Sky! It’s going to fun hearing all his new songs at the concerts. He is going back to the Phillipines, but didn’t say the date. He said there will be all kinds of concert dates announced soon. They are all booked, just not announced. 3 cheers for David! 🙂

    The last part of I’m Ready was sung by Annie Schmidt. She was the daughter of Jon Schmidt, who is one of the Piano Guys. He’s the one who plays the piano. She got lost on a hike by herself and they finally found her. I think she had fallen and died. It was very sad. She had helped David with the song, and he had a recording of her singing that last part and put it on the album to honor her.

    After David’s explanation, I thought it was her singing. Thanks so much for clearing it up for me, Lynnella. It was such a tragic loss.

    Up all night!!! Lol

    Listening to David’s Facebook live, again. I love all the songs on Leo!

    Glad your post came through SF! The plans are in the works for one concert.

    Lynnella, what a heartbreaking story and nice tribute from David.

    Hope everyone stays dry in the path of Harry!

    Abs, you’re welcome and thanks for posting shanellearchie 28’s posts on each song. His FB Live was epic, just as he is! I wish I could go to sleep that easy! 🙂

    Lynella, I was totally confused about the whole singing thing, but glad the ol’ brain finally got it! 🙂 It was a very heartfelt thing for David to do for her. I know she left a big void in a lot of people’s lives. So sad.

    Good on David for supporting LGBTQ community. I am so glad he has spoken up on their behalf.

    David gave a “shout out” and someone noticed 🙂

    So proud of him.

    102 Abrra…
    DA – who at most times falls over (verbally) just commenting on the weather, writes up his comments here almost perfectly: with passion, love, and complete freedom of expression. That only happens when someone has thought it through many, many times… and said it much more than once. These are words from the heart.

    This stands in sharp comparison to a lot I can read now days – where there is passion, but more a feeling of “reaction” than commentary. This is a model for those of us who wish to be heard but worry about being misunderstood. DA has been misunderstood so often already, and at such a young age, he has done his homework to understand himself, what he believes, and who he is.

    May I greet adversity with the same determination and faith he has shown. To me, DA models the growth that can come when we decide it is worth it to understand ourselves, accept responsibility for our voice (talents), and look up from the battle to truly see the hearts of our fellow travelers. Often, what surprises me most is the sound of one heart beating.

    Thanks for your comment. What he has written shows his true heart for sure. He came back in the wee hours of the morning to post this beautiful sermon-like post. He must have done a lot of thinking on the car ride home after the concert.

    Abrra, rthanks for posting all these goodies. Andthese last David instagram posts have left me speechless. This is what I feel from him from the start. A feeling of acceptance to all, at vips, at concerts, at the fan luncheon, with his eyes, his smile, his gestures, the same for all. And now he’s put all into words! Beautifully, eloquently written, filled with love and passion for all humankind. I’m blown away yet again.

    Bluesky, I love what said and the way you say it, thank you.

    Bluesky, love that Abrra faithfully graces us with a puzzle every week, Thank you Abrra.

    I’m stuck in the Spotlight Down vortex. That husky velvety voice and I just love those lyrics, “I was counting the days To singing solo songs that know my heart”

    Oooo good choice Dja! I too love the “singing solo songs” phrase. Tonight I am smiling at “a little less people I can’t please”. Hahaha. And when he sings “Well ain’t this sumpthin” I think Yes! this is sumpthin! What a great bunch of songs he has given to us.

    Dayzee, you sound like me, every day I have a different favorite. For some reason one of the songs keep running through my head, so that one is my favorite. Actually, when I ‘m listening to the songs, each one is my favorite as I listen to it. Love them all! ♥

    Thanks Abs! and Emily Wright! Great puzzle showing a lot of love for David! ♥♥

    Thoughts and prayers go out to all the hurricane victims. Just terrible. 😦


  138. Dayzee said

    Love the pic chosen for today’s puzzle. I have seen him in this position many times. So many hands reaching for him and he has only two. I remember in Arizona a large crowd of fans were lined up along a fence that separated us from David’s touring bus. He ran the entire length of the fence and touched as many hands as possible. Several times I have seen him in danger of being pulled off the stage by grasping hands, but he keeps the smile and continues to give us contact. I think there could be easily a hundred people at the stage’s edge, two hundred arms. That must be quite a spectacle from his point of view. It would make me think twice about getting any where near those emotional people.


  139. Abrra said

    I have always wondered what goes through David’s mind when he comes to the edge of the stage to greet all the fans wanting to make a connection. No denying that there is much love and respect going both ways.

    Today I am thankful that hurricane Irma was slowed down and the storm surge seems to be a lot less. I had some extended family who stayed in their house rather than leave. No word yet from them, but I think they will be ok.

    Today in history will always be on my mind.

    Dayzee, that was when we were among the emotional people when one of the girls next to us was trying to grab at his shirt and he was pulling away and fell into us. Poor guy, he gives so much of himself. Just have to love him!

    I won’t ever forget 9-11 because it’s my birthday. I was here first, so I try and stay in a good mood. I usually celebrate for a couple of weeks and spread it out as different ones want to take me out to eat…other than family. Works For Me! 🙂 Had a nice one. My daughter planned a trip to Myrtle Beach and the hurricane messed that up. She changed it to go to the other side of Nashville being it was more inland. And the hurricane is messing that up too. But everything is in place and we will be going tomorrow, hoping that we won’t be in a complete washout!

    Thanks Abs and Dja and tell your daughter Happy birthday too! Nothing like leaving nice sunny KC and come down to the remnants of Irma! 🙂 But the trip was planned and couldn’t be changed again. A lot of drizzle the last few days but sun and blue skies today! It’s just good to get away a few days and see different places.

    Aw, David and Jorge and his lovely bride. They look so handsome and grownup. It’s your turn now David! 🙂 That’s a good question, Abs!

    A few months ago I seen where Jason Castro’s wife is having their 3rd girl. The other 2 are real cuties.

    What a nice picture! Great that David is able to attend his friends wedding in Guadalajara, home of many of my family members.

    And David’s spanish is beautifully written. Oh that spanish album is going to be exquisite, I just know it 🙂
