Description:
He’s played with everyone and toured everywhere.  Born in Philadelphia in 1945 “as a kid I listened to rock ’n’ roll and whatever else was on the radio,” says Bromberg. He began studying guitar when he was 13 and later enrolled in Columbia University. Greenwich Village in the mid-’60s drew David to the downtown clubs and coffeehouses, where he could watch and learn from the best, such as his inspiration and teacher, the Reverend Gary Davis. Bromberg’s approach to guitar-playing earned him jobs playing the Village “basket houses”. He later became a first-call, “hired gun” guitarist for recording sessions, ultimately playing on hundreds of records by artists including Bob Dylan (New Morning, Self Portrait, Dylan), Link Wray, The Eagles, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, and Carly Simon. A wildly successful solo spot at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival in Great Britain led to his 1971 Columbia Records debut which included “The Holdup,” a songwriting collaboration with former Beatle George Harrison. David also met the Grateful Dead and wound up with four of their members, including Jerry Garcia, playing on his next two albums. David emerged from a recording hiatus of 17 years with the solo, acoustic, traditional folk-blues album Try Me One More Time (Appleseed, 2007) which was rewarded with a Grammy nomination. For his 2011 follow-up album, Use Me, Bromberg chose a different approach, asking some of his favorite singer-songwriters and musicians to write (or choose), produce, and perform on songs tailored to his versatile skills as a guitarist and vocalist. Answering David’s call were well-known artists John Hiatt, Dr. John, Widespread Panic, Levon Helm, Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, VinceGill, Tim O’Brien & Keb’ Mo’ and the super successful record production team the Butcher Bros.
