Davide Lippi’s ‘Still the Wind Blows’ is a wonderful pronouncement of positivity and the promises that are imminent of one – an individual – whom can carry the strength of a mountain.
It’s an inspiration in folk, crystalline, and tinged into a beautiful melody of acoustic and vocal decadence.
Equal parts social lone-wolf and compassionate philosopher, Davide spends his days as a horseman in northern Sweden when he’s not wandering around with his guitar.
Davide started his musical journey through Cuban percussion lessons in his childhood. As he traveled across the continents and his views on life matured, he developed a fascination for traditional folk songs (Italian, Irish, Appalachian and Swedish).
Said Davide: “Making art is just the capacity of picking up the silent messages of the natural world and reflecting them towards other listeners in a different and louder form.”
His view on creation as a spiritual process results in a spontaneous songwriting style where inspiration from traveling and life in communion with nature are the key element.
Beautiful incantations and possibilities in humanity and self-loving goodness.

"Still the wind blows" finally out! — here's the lyrics, now go to the link in bio and tell me how they feel when put into music. 📸 @isabellnwedin Once I was lying to feel fine and whiskey was a freeman´s best friend warm taste on my lips of a bitter end How did I get this die-hard resistance to the heaviest rain or to an invisible existence? time passes now on the drags of a cigarette still I am alive if I can see my breath ..still the wind blows ..still the wind blows How sad are these times we are looking through a screen to meet someone´s eyes Will I ever return to where I belong, where creation welcomes the dead and conceives the unborn? How did I get this die-hard resistance to the heaviest rain or to an invisible existence? time passes now on the drags of a cigarette still I am alive if I can see my breath ..still the wind blows ..still the wind blows I feel old like a stone struggling on this earth to find God´s throne But God what else from You could I pretend? up there in the sky you are as well a lone man and ..still the wind blows ..still the wind blows #davidelippimusic #rexiusrecords #debutalbum #theloar #repost #singersongwriter #songwriter #northernsweden #norrland #vemdalen #horseman #americana #firstrelease #folk #indiefolk #trumvallensfjällridning #musicrecord #härjedalen #härligahärjedalen #music #italianabroad #italianoinsvezia #musicrecordinga #iplayeastman #eastmanguitars
