The multi-talented, Austin based artist David Messier celebrated the release of his sophomore album, Time Bomb, Saturday night by performing the album in its entirety at One-2-One Bar in south Austin. A Trustee of the Recording Academy, Messier, is an esteemed music industry leader, accomplished producer, entrepreneur, singer and songwriter. Austin Chronicle has hailed Messier as an “expanse of talent and ideas” and KUTX said, “Messier is a hurricane force of music.” With all of his successful moments, he likes to live by the ethos that life is always happening in front of you, and doesn’t often look back. So, when it came time to write the album, he uncharacteristically and quite unexpectedly, captured his most reflective moments. Time Bomb is one of Messier’s most honest introspective creations to date and provides sharp and witty commentary through his upbeat, good-natured bravado.
“I don’t have much of a rearview mirror. I didn’t realize it at the time, but this is the most self-reflective record I’ve made.” — David Messier
