“I listened to every well-placed note and each sacred word. Gentle picking belies the sharp commentary and bawdy humor. Mac hand crafts authentic stories in a Tom Paxton/Cisco Houston vein. The lyrics are always clever, often jarringly profound. What a treasure to find!”

“Beautifully emotive guitar, vocals and an enchanting mix of influences in your music my friend, keep up the great work! Peace & respect,”
“Dave, you're in touch with the roots of American music and have re-defined a genre that helped carry people through rough times and good times. You are a poet musician without any agenda other than the sweet soul sounds sampled on these tracks. You've revived for me the kind of nostalgia we need to keep in our hearts. Thank you.”
"Open Up Your Mind".
This is definately one of those songs that needed to be written and no one better than Dave W. Mac to do just that.
I like it Dave W. Mac and what you are saying in this song needs to be repeated over and over again. Gonna share this one on my wall. Thanks for puttin this one up .... and nothing better than to have If Only follow this one.
“I like it, Dave. The lyrics are right on target, the melody works well in a Woody Guthrie kind of way, and I really dig the fingerpicking instrumental break. Bravo!”
“Dave - I have been immersed in art and music all my life - and, unfortunately, there are many, many pretenders - who invade our space out of pure ego - when music is REAL it is undeniable - this song is the epitome of REAL my friend, your dad will be real proud ... I use the present tense for a reason !! xx”
