David Bronson's Video For "Songbird" Premieres On Entertainment Weekly

Like all great albums, the best song changes on Questions, and so while since the day I first heard “Songbird” it was the best song on the album, after hearing “Song Of Life” at David Bronson’s Rockwood II gig last month, it switched on me.

So how bad does that make “Songbird”?

It makes it bad enough to be David’s “Love Story”, it makes it bad enough to break him through and if you need any further proof “Entertainment Weekly” premiered the video on Thursday December 11th, featuring Bronson and the Alomar family plus two members of the Bronson band in a sun swept SUV and enveloped in the moment.

This is what Entertainment Weekly had to say:

David Bronson’s music is rooted in the works of gently folky singer-songwriters like Cat Stevens and James Taylor, but for the first single from his upcoming third album, Questions (out Jan. 13 on Big Arc Records), he recruited a couple of people who worked with a much different kind of artist from the ’70s. The sunny, strummy “Songbird” features contributions from singer Robin Clark, who sang backups on David Bowie’s “Young Americans” (alongside a young Luther Vandross), and her husband Carlos Alomar, who’s been playing guitar for Bowie off and on for decades.

“There’s something about starting the record with a voice other than mine that I really liked,” Bronson writes in an email, “but you would only do that if it’s something special, and you’re not going to get more special than Robin Clark.”

The love fest between Bronson and his contributors goes both ways. “I love intelligent songs,” Alomar writes. “Songs that are worth singing, songs that would stand the test of time. When I first heard David, iconic writers came to mind. Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, and dare I say it, even Bowie.”

“In every generation there is always a need for a great storyteller,” Clark adds, “one that can shine a light on the human condition. I think that David Bronson is that person.

The album will be released on January 13th and I’ve had it in heavy rotation since David gave me an advance copy (which I gave to Tomas, so it is already making the rounds). This is a strange business but Questions is a great album and I can’t help feeling that if enough people heard it, the album would hit big time.

Enjoy the video
