Los Angeles singer-songwriter-guitarist David Haerle has released his latest single and music video “Days In The Sun”. This is his first release in nearly a year and serves as an introduction to his forthcoming album, his third, El Camino Sierra which is set for Spring 2023 release.
I was remembering my trips to the beach as a teenager in Los Angeles, riding on the bus with my closest friends and girlfriends way before we could drive. We shared a thousand discoveries and daydreams lying on the sand as the waves crashed in. Getting older, we learn about limitations, and how some of our plans may not come to pass. Each chapter of life brings both loss and gains. Maybe our best approach is to embrace the hard-earned wisdom that comes with age, while retaining the childlike wonder of youth.
El Camino Sierra marks Haerle’s third full-length release and follows his 2020 album Death Valley. Haerle has wider connections in music as his father emigrated from Germany to pursue a dream of working in the country music industry and co-founded the independent label CMH Records (Country Music Heritage). His maternal grandparents co-owned the first full time country music radio station in Nashville, WENO.
Haerle played in Rock and Alternative new wave bands during the 80’s, before becoming a music agent at ICM. When his father passed away suddenly, Haerle took over the family business and has served as president of CMH Records, now CMH Label Group, ever since.
