“He’s quirky, enigmatic, and charismatic and can play a mean guitar.” - Simone Factor, Fanbase Music Magazine.

“With this much honesty on his sleeve and in his music and this much talent, David Meulen has a huge future ahead of him. Oh and a really cool debut album.”– Therese Owen, Argus/Star Tonight.


Since the release of David Meulen`s debut album @davidmeulen, the single “Remember Me?” has enjoyed extensive day-time airplay on KFM and has recently been selected as the theme song on Home Channel`s freshest local property show “Show House.” (DSTV channel 176). Christopher Taljaard, Senior Producer at Home Channel says that they chose the track as it fitted the upbeat, local feel that they were looking for. “David’s music and vibe sets him apart from others as he is one of those songwriters, which no matter what time of day you hear his music, it makes you feel good.”


“Remember Me?”has also been playlisted on various other SA Radio stations and a video of the track is currently in the making.

The 12 track album features an eclectic mix of well-known artists. Legendary Johnny Clegg drummer Barry Van Zyl features prominently on drums and percussion, with Dirty Skirts virtuoso Maurice Paliaga and Kyle Dijkstra (live show bassist for David Meulen) coming in to create a solid backbone. Evelyn Hart provides an alternate bass sound on the lower register of her piano. The blues harp king Lonesome Dave Ferguson appears on a few of the bluesier tracks.Close friend and poet Jessi Howell came in to collaborate on the lyrics in some of the songs. She also created the characters that are featured on the album cover.

Media features up to date have noted:David Meulen “A Forward Thinker.” (www.texxandthecity.com); “Meulen in the Mainstream” (Vodacom.co.za),David Meulen`s album takes flight(Jacarandafm) and “An Impactful first offering” (Perdeby)


In May 2014, David attended lectures in the UK by former Abbey Road Engineer Ken Scott at Abbey Road`s famous Studio 2 . There were also lectures by Brian Kehew and Kevin Ryan, authors of critically acclaimed book "Recording the Beatles."


David enjoyed the experience thoroughly: “Abbey Road has always been a dream destination. Being a thorough Beatle maniac since the age of 6, this was a Wonka’s Golden Ticket for me - the chance of a lifetime; to be inside the actual studio that captured some of the most recognised songs in existence and learn how they work, how they did it and how they’re still doing it. As a pioneering studio they’re at the very top, and they’ve captured the sounds of the biggest musicians ever to hit the world.
