From an early age David Brown has led a musically and peripatetically adventurous existence, one that has taken him from the claustrophobic sprawl of Southern California to the frozen hinterlands of Siberia.
Born in the Summer of Love to a Jewish mother and a Canadian father, David's attraction to exotic climes was nurtured at an impressionable age by his father, a trucker, with whom David rode shotgun while he hauled shipping containers from the ports of San Pedro to the Southern Pacific train yards.
As a teenage runaway, David became immersed in the punk and poetry scenes of Los Angeles and San Francisco, at one point sharing a house with Courtney Love… until it burned down. Working as a dishwasher, he saved up enough money to buy his first saxophone. Out of these formative years as a teenage jazz hound and dope fiend emerged the unique combination of lighthearted resignation and self-possessed optimism that constitutes David’s singular worldview, and which has subsequently imbued his songwriting with such originality and conviction.
Having packed a lot of loose living into his hard-knocks teenage years, David cleaned up his act and took it on the road, honing his saxophone skills as he busked through Europe, India and South America. Upon his return to Los Angeles, the sound of his practicing could often be heard echoing through the canyons of the Hollywood Hills. (read more on FB)
