"Solid alt-country/roots-rock from Newfoundland via Toronto, recorded by Dale Morningstar at the Gas Sation in Toronto. has great sound & production. Tim Bocavonti plays some great lap steel that really makes "Didn't Take Too Long" sound incredible. The sound reminds me of Uncle Tupelo. Nothing new here, just classic alt-country rock and roll, recommended for fans of Wilco, Son Volt, and Uncle Tupelo."

"Alternative Country/Folk Rock in the vein of classic Wilco/Son Volt. Co-produced, engineered and mixed by Don Kerr, “Saturday Night, Sunday Morning” is made up of 10 original songs. Each one is different from the next, still they work together to form a cohesive listen with a country-rock feel. With musical appearances from Don Kerr, Tim Bovaconti, Dale Morningstar and Davids brother Chris Picco, who is also a songwriter, the album features lyrics that are sincere and crafted - each one a story hidden in a catchy melody. The first track, “Beyond Repair”, kicks everything off with a moody tale of a lonely, middle-aged dreamer living in a dirty basement apartment with nothing but his imagination and a record collection to keep him company. Many songs, like “Didnt Take Too Long” and “Left at the Start”, talk about heartbreak and loneliness. David knows how to sing about pain, but his sense of humour is also present: “The kid in the backyard never stops screamin/till his father comes round about five/Dont ever think they tried to give him away” (from “Always Outta Tune”). David has been compared to Steve Earle and Bob Dylan, and his sound shows hints of classic Wilco/Son Volt. People inevitably find similarities, but the truth is that David is an individual with an undeniably original voice and unique approach to songwriting."
