On October 1st, the independent singer-songwriter, David Vaters will release his latest studio endeavor. Entitled ‘Volume 2 – A Voice in the Wilderness,’ the album comes on the heels of Vater’s first volume of solo work which was released to critical acclaim in February 2017, to date with over 5 million streams on digital music platforms.
Infusing Americana music with elements of alternative country, folk rock, and contemporary Christian music, Vaters has quickly defined himself as a wholly unique talent quite unlike any other act in the music industry. Despite these two recent collections of music marking Vaters’ solo debut, he’s anything but green. The veteran performer and songwriter honed his skills for many years performing on both sides of the Atlantic and lending his sound to a number of musicians and producers’ work. Now on his own, Vaters has called upon colleagues to help his creative vision unfold.
Some of the industry’s finest talent is on display on these albums, including musicians who have worked with the likes of Vince Gill, Peter Frampton, Kenny Loggins, Amy Grant, and others.

The upcoming ‘Volume 2’ boasts the same impressive line-up as its predecessor, a collaboration that had critics calling ‘Volume 1’ “nothing if not mature, deftly crafted and powerful.” Like that album, ‘Volume 2’ will be part of Vaters’ ‘A Voice in the Wilderness’ collection of volumed records. “If this is the first album of his out of the starting blocks, at least in a titular sense, imagine what gems are likely to follow,” raved Dave Franklin of Los Angeles – The Plug.
Many independent artists that enjoy substantial critical acclaim are met with a less enthusiastic, niche audience. Vaters defies the norm in this regard, as his genre-spanning style has landed him on a number of notable charts. From his #1 worldwide Christian music position on Reverb Nation to charting on iTunes rock charts in Australia and Mexico, Vaters has proved his relevance as a up and coming talent to take note of. ‘A Voice in the Wilderness: Volume 2’ is available to pre-order now. The record is due out on September 22 for streaming and download on all major digital music platforms.
