A Farewell Message
David Harvey on leaving the Claire
MARCH 2007 - Nashville, TN
most of you probably know by now, I have decided to leave the Claire
Lynch Band after 3 and a half great years. This decision was
extremely difficult to make, and as my stage time with Claire draws
close to an end, the thoughts of leaving become no easier.
The rumor mill has offered many reasons for my resignation, but I
wanted to offer you the truth. Yes, I have been blessed with a
demanding career at Gibson, and folks have already mentioned that to
be the reason for my resignation. Change is in the air at Gibson,
but my decision to resign was made before I heard word of new
opportunities in my future. The fact is…..Claire’s star is shining
as bright as ever, and her show dates are filling the calendar. Her
performance schedule demands so much of my time, I have the luxury
of little else. As you can see, it is time for me to step aside,
because Claire’s ship is Ready to Sail. Most of you know I have a
young daughter at home, and she has reached the ripe old age of 7
way too fast and, honestly, I feel I’ve missed too much of her young
life. Every musician aspires to be a “working musician”, and leaving
the band at this time proves to be nothing less than bittersweet.
Yes, I am sometimes fearful that a gig this good will not come
again, but I only have one chance to be a father to my little girl.
I’m sure you can see which is my higher calling.
Folks, this isn’t farewell….our music community is small and it is a
comfort to me to know that my family and I will see you at music
events from time to time. I have many projects in the works….I have
started production on Moody Bluegrass, Volume II, and will hopefully
release a solo project in the near future. I also plan to continue
live performances as I can.
To the fans…..many of you have become my friends and extended
family. I owe you so much! Thanks for coming out to see us, and for
your unending kindness and support!
Claire, Missy, Jim, and Ben…..I look forward to hearing your music
again! I’ll be listening! I have nothing but the utmost respect and
appreciation for your talents, and they are many! I will truly miss
the high level of musicianship and professionalism you deliver night
after night, gig after gig. Your music has impressed and inspired
me, and I have grown as a musician during my time performing and
recording with you. My friends, I will miss the laughs and just
spending time with you all! I’m a long time fan, and will
God be with you,
