Former Voice fan-favorite Dave Fenley released new single “Come To Think About It” today – his first release since his season of the show wrapped in November.

His soulful, larger-than-life vocals serve to enhance the desperation in the song’s messaging about a realization just about any listener has come to at some point in their life.
“Come to think about it/ she’s the only one that ever made things right/ And come to think about it/ why am I holding onto this bottle when I could be holding her so tight”
Born and raised in Lufkin, Texas, Fenley was a natural as a singer, whether it was church music or learning country harmonies at home. Picking up the guitar as a teenager, he started playing in bars and small music venues, but something was missing. The turning point came in college as he began to get serious about songwriting. When producers from The Voice came calling, it was Fenley’s vocals and appealing stage presence they were most interested in – and he knew to embrace it.
“I looked at The Voice as a platform for sharing and engaging with a really big audience. If I was just a songwriter who could sing, but hadn’t played live shows for a decade, I wouldn’t have the ability to deliver the way I can now,” he shares.
Fenley finished the show in the Top 10 on Team Blake and was prepared to move to his next big adventure with songs, a band and an extended support team.
“The difficulty on television is showing who the artist is behind all these cover songs they’re performing,” he says. “The hope is that you can create a bridge that people can cross over and connect with on the other side.”
Fenley recently made news as a writer on “Boy and a Man” by AJ McLean – the Backstreet Boys member’s debut country radio single from upcoming solo album Long Road, out this spring.http://www.countryschatter.com/2019/03/dave-fenley-releases-deeply-personal-debut-song-come-to-think-about-it/New ArtistsNew ReleasesPress Release"Come To Think About It",Dave Fenley,facebook,NBC's The Voice,Twitter
