Straight Out of Nashville: A Unique Fusion of Country, Rock and Theatre
It's not often that an artist comes along who truly defies categorization, yet David Abundance does precisely that with his debut single, "Woo Wagon." A fusion of Keith Urban's down-under-country roots, the high-voltage energy of Panic At The Disco!, and the dramatic flair of traditional Broadway musical theatre, "Woo Wagon" is an aural explosion that feels like a ride on the wildest party bus in town.
David Abundance's powerhouse vocals are a marvel in themselves. His soaring falsetto, gritty tenor, and edgy bass range meld together seamlessly, carrying the frenzied energy of the song forward like a rambunctious crowd at a Friday night hoedown. One can't help but be reminded of the genre-blurring fearlessness of the late Prince when listening to David Abundance. The comparison extends beyond the music, as David's flamboyant sequin and floral suits scream of the Purple One's iconic style.
"Woo Wagon" is a foot-stomping, heart-racing tribute to Nashville's vibrant post-Covid party bus culture, and it embodies the city's resilient spirit and undying thirst for good times. The track's rousing chorus, with its innovative time signature change, plays like an ode to communal celebration. The jubilant cries of "WOOO!" that punctuate the song are an invitation to throw your hands up, let go of your worries, and revel in the infectious joy that Abundance so skillfully evokes.

The cleverly crafted lyrics paint a vivid picture of a culture that thrives on shared euphoria and unity.
