Multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter David Bromberg has earned a wave of national coverage in advance of his upcoming April 17th ‘Big Road' project (Red House Records). With interviews, album reviews and/or exclusive premieres appearing in Forbes, Elmore, American Songwriter, Acoustic Guitar, Relix, Paste, Vintage Guitar Magazine, The Bluegrass Situation, Popmatters and elsewhere, Bromberg and his band look forward to delivering 'something of value' to their fans - in other words, a tangible, content-rich package of music, film, text and photos.

Early buzz has been building, with Elmore praising, "This is one of those rare, instant classic albums, faultless in conception and delivery from start to finish. This is Bromberg at his deservedly much-lauded best." Forbes, as part of their expansive interview feature, said, Bromberg is "A masterful guitarist, mandolinist and violinist...," and WXPN has just selected the title track as their coveted ‘Gotta Hear Song of the Week'. ‘Big Road' is also the #1 most added album and single this week on the Americana Radio Chart: https://americanamusic.org/radio-chart-album

‘Big Road' is a substantive music/video release, featuring 12 new tracks, five hi-def performance videos and a mini-documentary detailing the album's creation. It will be released in three formats: traditional CD, a gatefold vinyl album and a CD/DVD combo pack. In a time when recorded music has been devalued and relegated to a digital stream for smart phones, ‘Big Road' returns the listener to the golden age of record-making, when enjoying an album was a tactile, visual and auditory experience.

Additional recent Pull Quotes:
Elmore: "David Bromberg's path can be described as circular, spiral or a Fibonacci sequence, but it is definitely unique."

Acoustic Live - Interview feature here: https://acousticlive.com/acoustic_live/Best_Apr_2020.html
Excerpt: Bromberg "has been delivering the goods since the 1960s, and his live performances today are as adept, powerful and creative as they were in the past." "Millions of Americans regard Bob Dylan as a treasured national resource, but there are many lesser known American rock, folk and country musicians who have provided their artistry for decades and deserve the same status. Chris Hillman, Tom Rush, Eric Andersen and David Bromberg immediately come to mind."


Multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter David Bromberg isn't standing still. He is still pushing boundaries, still an iconoclast, still unapologetically unique, as he continues to explore his life's journey via a path that might be considered ‘asymmetrical'. His musical expression is still inimitable and his scope of knowledge is encyclopedic. Bromberg's band is road-tested and filled with ace musicians. Its current lineup is anchored by Mark Cosgrove (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Nate Grower (fiddle, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Josh Kanusky (drums, vocals) and newest member, Suavek Zaniesienko (bass, vocals). Joining David's core band for ‘Big Road' are keyboardist extraordinaire Dan Walker on piano, organ and accordion, a stellar horn section of Bromberg regulars Birch Johnson (trombone), Jon-Erik Kellso (trumpet), Matt Koza (tenor sax) and Bob Stewart (tuba) and Larry Campbell (mandolin and pedal steel).

Highlights abound on ‘Big Road', from the title track, to ‘Loving of the Game', to Bromberg originals ‘George, Merle & Conway' and ‘Diamond Lil', to ‘Standing in the Need of Prayer' and many more. Throughout, Bromberg emphasizes musical inclusion, as many genres are represented: country, folk, blues, bluegrass, gospel and more. Read his expansive track-by-track song notes, below.

The video performances in the ‘Big Road' package capture lightning in a bottle and showcase Bromberg in remarkable form. His vocals are unexpected and a thrill to behold, as is his camaraderie with his band. Bromberg's relentless touring schedule belies his years, and his upcoming itinerary continues to be adjusted to reflect the current Coronavirus crisis: https://davidbromberg.net/upcoming-tour-dates/

What is the story of David Bromberg in 2020? His original persona - the outrageous guitar slinger who could blow anyone off the stage - has morphed into masterful bandleader.  Today we get to focus on the totality of the man. After fifty years, David has evolved but is still searching, still creating, still vital, and ever humble.

The thrust of the story is David's peripatetic journey (some have said it evokes Joseph Campbell's circular ‘hero's journey'):
• He starts out at twenty, leaving Columbia University for the streets of Greenwich Village, 
playing in coffeehouses, learning from Rev Gary Davis, Doc Watson and Mississippi 
John Hurt, jamming with musicians and building a reputation. 

• By thirty he is on the top of the mountain - he's recorded with Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, John Prine and Ringo Starr, written with George Harrison, found Linda Ronstadt her breakthrough hit song "Long, Long Time", recorded four albums of his own for Columbia and played to adoring crowds.
• At the height of this success, he becomes disillusioned with life as a touring musician and quits, moving to Chicago to become an apprentice violin builder. He immerses himself in the world of lutherie and learns to identify violins - their makers, materials, provenance and commercial value, eventually opening a retail violin shop.
 • After decades away from life as a recording and touring musician he returns, records the Grammy-nominated album Try Me One More Time, assembles a band and continues to carve out his own turf and identity which leads to Big Road.
