With his 1971 self-titled Columbia Records release, multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter David Bromberg emerged as a wunderkind of American roots music. The disc’s blend of traditional and original material, virtuosic musicianship, and iconic cover art trumpeted the arrival of a new artist of an audacious vision. Over the course of seven more albums for Columbia & Fantasy Records and through associations with Bob Dylan, Jerry Jeff Walker, John Hartford, George Harrison, the Grateful Dead, Emmylou Harris, and Bonnie Raitt, Bromberg’s reputation and following grew exponentially.
Mark Cosgrove (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Nate Grower (fiddle, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Josh Kanusky (drums, vocals), and the newest member, Suavek Zaniesienko (bass, vocals), entered the studio in mid-2019 for a different approach to record-making. The resulting album, Big Road, gives Bromberg fans the most intimate portrait to date of David and his band, musically and visually. Featuring twelve new recordings, five hi-def performance videos, and a mini-documentary detailing the album’s creation, the content-rich album was released on Compass/Red House Records as a CD/DVD combo pack and gatefold vinyl album. Unfortunately, COVID put an end to all live shows until fall 2021, which is where David is poised to write his next chapter.
