Singer Songwriter Showcase: David Demordaunt - Everything That Has a Beginning 
By Gary Schwind

When I first put on Everything That Has a Beginning, the first artist that came to my mind was John Zorn.  The first track, “Enchanted Heat” may not be quite as ‘out there’ as John Zorn’s music, but it has the same sort of dark jazzy mood. 

On Everything That Has a Beginning, Demordaunt blends elements like avant jazz, international and Goth.  Now, don’t get the wrong idea.  I don’t mean the dressed up in all black with white face makeup and black lipstick sort of Goth.  Perhaps the best example I can give of the Goth element of this album is in the song “When I Loved a Vampire.”  I think this song would be great for a movie based on an Anne Rice novel.

Demordaunt has four guest vocalists on this album.  The one that I like the best is Noe Venable on “Snow White Silk.”  Noe Venable’s voice is a real treat on this song that sounds like a fairy tale written by either Stephen King or Tim Burton. 

This is a rich CD with sweeping songs that seem almost like short plays.  Demordaunt’s music stimulates visuals unlike any other CD I can think of.  It is a very well done CD and I enjoyed it.  There is no denying his talent as a songwriter and a musician. That being said, I’m not sure I could listen to it very frequently because it’s such a mellow, almost somber album.  But I guess that’s to Demordaunt’s credit.  He has made a challenging album that may take some getting used to, and frankly, that’s not all bad.
