Bad Choices Make Good Stories (Agnostic Gospel part 2)
David Champagne has been a mainstay of the Boston music scene before the city even knew it had one. As one of the founding members of RCA recording artist Treat Her Right, David and his songwriting partner, the late Mark Sandman (who went on to create Morphine) were leading stars in the growing Americana movement that came out of the Northeast in the late 1980s. David is considered one of the eminent songwriters in the Boston music scene, having explored new genres that crossed Americana, jazz, folk, psychedelia and performance art. His multitude of projects included the Jazz Popes, the Heygoods, and his most recent project Agnostic Gospel.

The spring of 2019 will see the release of Bad Choices Make Good Stories,  a darker more existential follow-up to the first Agnostic Gospel album. Produced by Champagne with Paul Kolderie (Pixies, Radiohead, Dinosaur Jr.), Alec Spiegelman (Cuddle Magic) and Dietrich Strause, the album ratchets up the social commentary, musical energy and volume and takes David and his music into previously unexplored territories.

   There is a fine line between genius and insanity, and David Champagne stomps all over that sucker with every album! On this latest installment of  his socially and spiritually charged songbook, Agnostic Gospel II: Bad Choices Make Good Stories, Champagne offers further proof of this balancing act. This is completely different take than Vol. 1, jangling with a punk energy, but it's just as wryly deep, thought-provoking and intelligent. And though Champagne does all the lead vocals on this one, it still feels like different voices of an eclectic chorus. As Champagne notes, this is the existential side of the definition of agnostic  more the noncommittal sect than the nonreligious. As he sings in the title song, Bad people make good stories, oh, God, so many voices  All those voices are swimming inside David Champagnes head, and they come pouring out here.  Longtime Boston journalist Nate Dow, author of the blog As Heard Here.
