David Bromberg

An American original: amazing multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter.

"The reason Man created stringed instruments. David touched them with a lover's fingers and they moaned that true love right back at him. Wood and wire and flesh spoke." —Jerry Jeff Walker

As a young man, David was drawn into the 1960s Greenwich Village coffeehouse scene: listening and learning, performing, and gaining his own reputation as an extraordinary guitarist. Over his career, he's played on hundreds of recordings by artists including Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, John Hurt, the Reverend Gary Davis, Tom Paxton, Chubby Checker and Carly Simon.

After solo career spanning most of the 1970s, he dropped out of the music scene, becoming a violin maker and raising a family. Since moving his family back East a few years ago, his desire to make music has been rekindled, and to his fans' delight, David is recording and touring again. His 2007 re-debut CD Try Me One More Time was nominated for a Grammy award. Critics are praising his newest album, Use Me, a collaborative effort with friends like John Hiatt, Levon Helm, Los Lobos, Tim O'Brien, Vince Gill, Widespread Panic, Dr. John, Keb' Mo' and Linda Rondstadt.

Bromberg . . . makes every track shine, like the A-list session man he's always been." — Will Hermes, Rolling Stone
