Often referred to as the “Godfather of Americana,” David Bromberg has been recording and collaborating with a wide variety of artists since the late 1960s.
Born in Philadelphia in 1945 and raised in Tarrytown, New York, Bromberg acquired a taste for rock n’ roll and blues at an early age. Inspired by the likes of Pete Seeger and Revered Gary Davis, Bromberg quickly became proficient on guitar, fiddle, pedal steel, and dobro, allowing him to perform with these artists in later decades. Since 1968 Bromberg has made appearances on over sixty albums by artists including Bob Dylan, Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson, Richie Havens, Ringo Starr, and many others.
In addition to his collaborative work Bromberg has released seventeen solo albums between 1972 and 2013. Bromberg’s 2007 album Try Me One More Time was his first solo album in seventeen years and earned Bromberg a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Folk Album. Bromberg’s latest album, Only Slightly Mad, was lauded for retaining his classic folk-rock sound.
