Born in Philadelphia and raised in Tarrytown, New York, David Bromberg was inspired by the music of Pete Seeger and The Weavers, to begin studying the guitar at age 13. Drawn to Greenwich Village's flourishing coffeehouse folk music scene in the mid-1960’s, he became renowned for his extraordinary guitar picking and exceptional stylistic range. This brought him to the attention of many other musicians who sought him out as a back-up artist for recording. In all he has played as a sideman on over 100 albums for artists such as Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, John Hurt, the Reverend Gary Davis, Tom Paxton, Chubby Checker and more.
Bromberg’s music spans bluegrass, blues, folk, jazz, country and western and rock and roll and incorporates his distinctly quirky and humorous lyrics. Signed to his first recording contract in 1970 he released a series of albums and toured until 1990. He then took 17 years off from recording before returning with Try Me One More Time (2007) and Use Me (2011).
