About two years ago, I talked about the great David Bronson as an artist that you should know. Now the New York based singer-songwriter is back with a new album coming out next month.
Questions (Jan. 13 via Big Arc Records) continues Bronson’s brand of sonic folk-playing that is in tune with Cat Stevens and Jethro Tull, but now the songwriting is more confident and full of even stronger lyrical depth (“This Life is questions / but the questions they are mine” from the album’s first single “Songbird”). Bronson also had a little help from some friends – Robin Clark, who sang with Bowie on “Young Americans”, and her husband and former Bowie guitarist Carlos Alomar both contribute to the album. Make sure to keep your eye on Bronson next year.
Check out “Songbird” below. Also make sure to check out Bronson’s two pervious albums here.
From: New York City, NY
For People Who Like: Cat Stevens’s voice, The Mountain Goats, Jethro Tull (without the flute), soulful and energetic songwriting.

David Bronson joins a list of modern singer-songwriters that aren’t afraid to add a little bite to their songwriting, and he’s all the more better for that. Bronson is a singer-songwriter and producer based out of NYC who grew up on classic rock albums and tries to translate, both as a musician and producer, the sonic power of a whole rock album into his songs.
And yes, his beard is awesome.
David’s current project is a 22-song cycle broken up into two separate albums forming The Long Lost Story, a chronicle of a young man’s recent lost of a love and his search for a meaning in its end and how to move on. The Story is available now, and its prequel, The Long Lost, will be released soon.
