Welcome to the official website of David Shearer Music!
January 16, 2017: With the new year, comes inspiration for new songs, songs about life, aging, the loss of loved ones, and especially about hope. We are inspired to dig deep within. 2016 was a year of sorrow and deep contemplation. When those you love suffer from cancer, loss of memory, and the hard knocks of life, one has to ask the question, "What am I doing that makes life truly meaningful?" Also whispered, "Do I share purpose and love?" The pallet is full of colorful notes, stay tuned!
CONCERT CANCELLATION: Due to the current winter storm watch for a snow and ice storm in the Portland area, which is in effect from 10:00 AM January 7 to 10:00 PM January 8, we regret to say that we’ll have to reschedule the Sunnyside SDA Church concert for another time. We believe this is in the best interest of everyone, as we wouldn’t want people to risk their safety in trying to attend our concert or while heading home afterwards. Thank you to everyone for your enthusiasm for this concert! We look forward to sharing our music at Sunnyside Church at a later date. Warm wishes and blessings to all!
For all of our Portland friends, we have a Saturday evening Vespers concert scheduled for 6:30 PM, January 7th, 2017. Click on our events button for the details! We hope to see you there! Be praying for calm weather with safe passage through the mountain passes and the Gorge. Thank you so much!
Hope for the world? Yes, you will find it in a living Saviour! This season, we are going to be sharing music that uplifts the soul and points us to a Heavenly Father who loves us and gave us that love in Jesus. We will be singing and sharing at Journey to Bethlehem on December 2, 2016 at 6:15 and 7:15. We hope to see you there! Go to

December 29, 2015: With all the turmoil in the world, music, good music, has a special place. It is therapy for the soul. I was overjoyed to share some of our music at several mini concerts in the valley. It was a blessing for me to see eyes light up and faces begin to shine with hope. If you have an opportunity to share some love this season, please do so. Christmas is really about love, not things. People need to know that they are worthwhile. So, be a blessing, and receive a blessing!
We have been bombarded by snow, so off we go....
December 1, 2015: We will be sharing our music at the local Journey to Bethlehem on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 5:45 PM and again on Saturday at 5:00 PM. Each time is a 30 minute slot. We hope to see you there! Directions are in our Calendar of Events.
November 19, 2015: Having lost my dad in August and nearly lost my mom this week, I am hoping that all of you are caring about your parents in very real ways. This Thanksgiving, take time to tell your mom and dad or other loved ones that you care. Let them know how grateful you are for all that they did for you. I am working on a new piece that I am dedicating to the memory of my dad. He was a man that suffered from a heart defect. He did not let that keep him from striving to support his family. He did not always make the best choices in life, partly due to a lack of oxygen nourishing his brain, but I know that he loved his family He did his best. Please, do not ignore your loved ones. Life is too short for that!
Have you ever composed a song and known from the start that it was something deep from the heart that only our Heavenly Father could have put there? That is what happened with one of the songs to be on our next album. When my wife and I gave a concert this afternoon, I realized how the words of that song impacted those who heard. It was a message meant just for them. Sin has a way of cracking the loveliness of life, but when we realize that our Heavenly Father cares, the scars on our heart begin to disappear. The longer I live, the more I realize that we need something more than what this world offers... I can't wait to share our new album this fall. I hope that you will find an answer to your needs.
Thank you to all of you who are letting us know how much our music is helping you to find a quiet place in your hearts!
A comment by a recent listener to "Away from Rush Hour" was heart-warming! Please read the following:
Musically, we are up to good things. As we slow down and take account of our lives, it seems to draw out those good ole' creative juices. Sometimes that juice is thick with joy. Sometimes, it flows with a tenacious melancholy, and yet other times, it is a juice full of a special brand of exuberance. Stay tuned for one of those moods...!
