Numb Music Video
@davidarchie Numb video is officially up! The link is in the bio so be sure to check it out and share it! Wow, I can’t believe this song and video are actually out now! It came from such a real place for me. We shot the video outside and alone to capture what it feels like to connect with oneself. Sometimes you have to separate yourself from everything to connect to something deeper. Nature is for sure one of those places for me. I hope that you can feel that energy watching and listening. Thanks so much for all the love! 🙏🏼 #Numb #Musicvideo #realstories #speakingtruth #music #song

My brain has been in a state of mist or fog due to three days of pure David Archuleta concert bliss last week. Coming back to days of work waiting for me hasn’t helped but I’d do it again in a heartbeat. What an incredible time going to concerts, hanging with like-minded fans who don’t roll their eyes when you can’t stop talking about all things David. I really really hope that David is available so we can make our trip to Tuacahn an annual event. David is magic and in that setting, the experience is unreal.
I’m going to try to share some of the things that left an impression on me from this incredible three-day immersion into David music and we must not forget the story telling, love them both.
The new songs “I’m Ready” and “Say Me”. They’re living in my heart and I can’t wait to hear them again. His voice, that voice just penetrates my soul. It is a sound that doesn’t seem possible to exist. I can’t even describe it but the sensory overload is real. I love them both but something about Say Me is so haunting and full of cry that it hurts, makes you feel the realness that is David. It was hard for him to describe it but it made perfect sense to me. The way he sang these songs was so raw and personal, so vulnerable… incredible. “Numb” is the perfect song for a comeback. I heard it last year but it sounds new, fresh. I wondered if he was singing it differently. Hearing the beautiful production of the recorded version might play a part but it is sooooo good. I hope it gets the attention it deserves.
The Lyric Video
The covers, oh my, “Higher Ground” displayed all of David’s groovitude, vocally and physically. He has a way to sing and move that is unique only to him and we eat it right up, I’m sure that this is only the beginning.
“Don’t You Worry Child” was so much fun! Love that he acknowledged some of us would need to do the jumping at the knees lol.
“Dare You To Move” was huge for me. The reasons he picked this song were so personal and as I listened back to the videos it hit me in the gut. Don’t know why but I don’t like him to hurt and it was painful. It’s become a favorite as it is so relatable. I know to play this full blast when needed now.
The oldies, so funny to think of them as oldies when David is only twenty five. “Something About Love” and “Crush” have to be sung. They’re crowd favorites and I can’t help getting up to dance to these. “My Hands” will always be one of my favorites and “Works For Me”, what an unexpected surprise! Loved it in his new deep rich velvety voice as he strutted around the stage and so did everyone else. And I also want to say that this band is superb. Chad is the best backup vocalist David has ever had. I watched the band members as David shared his stories and I love that they laugh, smile and clap every night even though they’ve heard these stories many times now! They’re keepers.
The story telling was signature David but better. I love for him to talk and share with us. The entire show, the singing and stories he shares in order to relate to us, to help us understand where he is coming from all make for something personal. A soul and heart connection that is felt throughout the evening. David initiates and we reciprocate with applause, yelling, and screams of I love you. David says he doesn’t feel sincere in yelling back I love you too, but he doesn’t have to. His love for humanity is palpable and it brings me to tears. It’s an experience to be felt. If there are those on the fence about going to one of these experiences please go, it is so worth it.
The fan lunch surprise sure surprised us all. I was so happy that Kari stopped by and answered some questions (I’ll refer to Dayzee for those because all I could do was smile and wonder if I was dreaming). I was dragging chairs, something about me and chairs… never mind, to the center for the group picture when he walked in and I was able to shake his hand and thank him for taking the time to come by before he sat down. I sat so still that I was able to record! I’m horrible at this but it came out fine. The words of thanks to his fans were so real, not to just the ones there but to all. He knows we’re there to support him and he appreciates it. And then he sits to sing! There is nothing better than David’s voice. I was sitting no more than four feet to his left and acoustic David is just wow. I also love his love of food which he was curious about what we ate and we’re all trying to answer his questions about the soups. What a guy.
I want to thank Kalei and her team for a great luncheon, we had so much fun. And also for the shout out to Snowangelz and The Voice David Archuleta for our continued support of David. Kalei beautifully stated we are a community of David fans, true words.
I also want to thank the fans who personally thanked me at the luncheon and the adms of this fan site and for continuing our support of David. Thank you all for hanging with us. I believe things are only going to get sweeter.

- davidarchie In the studio with Jeremy Bose. For those of you who know the songs My Kind of Perfect and The Other Side Of Down, Jeremy produced and cowrote those. We’ve written and produced 3 more for this new project and this is a 4th one where we’re trying something a little different and more moody. Jeremy can do it all though.#newmusic #moretocome #music#nashville #studio #TN #JeremyBose
davidarchie Nothing like a good start to the morning. I may not be dressed for a photoshoot but I actually really am doing a photoshoot today! Time to get some good shots together to go wth these songs! #goodmorning #workout #morning #photoshoot
Some much-welcomed news today for fans of David Archuleta! He has announced from his Nashville Archu-Cave that he will be doing a new photo shoot in support of his new songs! It seems that the long wait just might be over for fans who are craving new music.
After extensive study of the Archuleta IG post, I spotted that the film was shot backwards. This is what happens when a video is shot with the front facing iPhone camera. What you say? We can’t have that! I will not let this go unchallenged. It must be corrected and I hopped on the case immediately.
At first look I thought that his face looked different in the still shot before running the film. As the video played I heard the great news of the photo shoot, but I also noticed his chocolate chip mole had slid to the opposite side of his neck! What?
How can this be?
I went into my magic tool box, pulled out my “video-flipping” device and flipped that thing right to left. Now we have everything working as intended with the great smile he gives us and the mole properly back at its home base.
Exhibit A is my YouTube video of the flipped IG post.
I have now put the Archuleta world back on its axis!

“There he is!” I was checking my phone for any David news as we were going into Richfield. “He’s on the same highway that we are on, Dayzee!” Sure enough after winding around a few roads, there were the same signs that were in David’s Instagram! We are here! Later there was more excitement to see him walk out on that stage with his big smile and waving. Oh, the yelling, clapping, standing ovations; he had them all!
Like I’ve said, the whole world needs to hear that voice. It’s just something special to see him live…he has that “light”. Got to meet up with Shawna and Patty again. Hadn’t seen them since Motab. The big surprise was when Nathan came out and sang “The Prayer” with David.
OMGosh, I never, ever thought I would get to see that live. At the end, David had a little girl come on stage while he sang “Glorious”.
When leaving, I saw a bottle on stage and went down and got it with the help of a stage hand. Thought I had a David bottle, but when I watched the video of them singing “The Prayer”, it shows Nathan taking a drink and sitting the bottle right down where I picked it up…so…it was Nathan’s water bottle and not David’s! ;) well, he’s second best! LOL
On to Queen’s Creek – 1st concert
There was an early dinner at Olive Garden before the concert where we met up with Kalei and her bunch. It was Linda’s birthday and she was surprised to find out that she was going to meet David in person! Awesome!
Dayzee’s and my seats were apart and I got to sit between some “fuddy duddies”! No arm swinging with lighted cameras, no singing and swaying! They might not have been in the swing of things, but it didn’t stop me! haha. The 3 on my right left when David left the stage.
What? no encore?? How can anyone leave with David on fire!!! But of course there was one! It left me on a high all night! He was so good!
Queen’s Creek – 2nd concert
Gwen couldn’t make it, so Dayzee sat in her seat and Dayzee’s seat went to Victoria! I sat next to SuzyQ and it was good to see her again. Got to meet Pat and Sweetonda, Tawna and hubby, DJAfan and more.
After hearing “7 Years” live 3 times in a row, I give in! David puts his all in that song, he is incredible! There is nothing like David feeding off the electric frenzy of the fans. I felt like a teenager again! It is with love that I listened to his little speeches before his songs that gives messages on him staying in music. Don’t ever quit singing David!
It was the night before Easter and I was hoping David would sing something special and he did! It was beautiful.
It was so new to him he read the words from his phone and sang it perfectly. Feeling it in his heart, he was breaking down at the end as we all were. Thank you David, you never let us down!
What a joyous trip! It wouldn’t have happened without the super nice Dayzee doing all the driving! 😀
