Like real life, there are few people on the internet that I can honestly say I knew them back when but one such person is Dave Meredith. I think I've known this guy for the best part of eight years musically, and let me tell you that is a LOT of music to cover. The first actual review I still retain is Money Talks/When It Ends/Y Niggaz Front (June 2003) although I'm certain I spent most of 2002 reviewing him in various guises, in the case of the previous three tracks going under the name Worlds Apart. He was also a long time collaborator with the much missed Slippy T who is somewhere out there in real life. Sigh. Anyway, you lot may well know him simply as Mezzer.
Aaaahh, THAT guy!!!
Joining in Your Whispers is fellow Mixposure-ist and numbah ******* one guitar player Joseph Rodriguez who I have brought to your attention a time or two before, mainly over at the old MP3 Unsigned site. The real surprise here is so present in the music, it took me several plays before I could concentrate on what was happening. Annette Scott has a voice to die for, rich, vibrant, soaring, you could easily run out of words... OK, I already 'fessed up to a marked liking for female vocalists, but come on, when they are good, nothing like it on the planet Guv'nr. Annette Scott is one of those and believe me she really had to hold her own against the music.
Dave has always been a tasty songwriter even way back there at the beginning, and time and experience has only honed and sharpened that, resulting in beautifully constructed, artfully recorded and mixed songs that just scream radio play. Dave has just over the Mixposure I believe but by the looks of it, the site has already taken him to its bosom and so they should, radio is where an artist like this truly belongs. For those people used to Joseph's more rocky, passionate side, his acoustic contributions here (I presume it is him) are exactly the right touch and fit the song like a glove. What will get you though is the combination of that voice and the song, shivers down the spine time....
MUST HAVE power ballad (and I mean that)

Sorry steve, forgot to say. Jo Rod did all the electric in the remake.... i did the acoustics.. What a guy to work with.. Jo, top lad!!.. Thank you again Steve..
Steve.... i am truly touched by this.... and i mean that.. It brought a tear to my eyes, yep im all soft like that :-). Ive sometimes wondered if im wasting my time, not in terms of working with others and recording songs but by putting my life,heart and soul into it everyday of my life.. Most real life friends and local people dont understand why, esp as its not making me money..They cant understand that i just love doing it and without it my life would be like an empty desert... Its why i wake up everyday and love being part of sites like Mixposure and listening to artists work and working with others on collabs.
