David Wiffen is the first studio album and second solo album [1]by Canadian Singer-Songwriter David Wiffen. The standout tracks are "I've Got My Ticket", "Driving Wheel", and "More Often Than Not". As one reviewer recently commented, "Its complex arrangements sneak around behind seemingly simple songs which gives the whole thing an incredible depth. Stealing the show throughout is Wiffen's incredible baritone. It's smooth but fractured. It's the kind of voice you wish you had. ...As you'll never own his talent, buy the record and get lost in the wonder and heartbreak..."[2]
