David Newbould is an exciting singer/songwriter/performer, and he has many believers who can testify to the passion and earnestness he puts into his work. His music has appeared on 10 Network TV Shows/Films/DVD’s/Movie Trailers to date (CBS’ "Criminal Minds" and "Harper's Island", WB’s "Dawson’s Creek" and "7th Heaven", Paramount’s "Joan of Arcadia", Fox’s "Party Of Five", CBS’ "Threshold", Lifetime’s "Monarch Cove", Lifetime Movie's "The Two Mr. Kissels", and Millennium Films' “Streets Of Blood" - starring 50 Cent and Val Kilmer). He has performed to acclaim at numerous ASCAP songwriting events, and can count among his fans various executives at Universal Music, Sony Canada, RCA Records, North Star Music Group, and Primary Wave Music Publishing.
For many years he focused his attentions on New York City, performing both solo in clubs and then with a band. He developed a loyal fan base all through relentless performances and word of mouth - no label publicity, no major press, no glitz. Just songs that touched people’s lives and made an indelible mark.
At a certain point, David decided to relocate to Austin, TX. There he appeared on numerous radio and TV shows, had videos in rotation on Austin Music Network/ME Television, recorded his third EP, his first full length CD, and his ambitious live CD/DVD package. He had 10 songs placed through North Star, and developed his most dedicated and thorough following to date. David carved out a niche as not only a melodic and heartfelt songwriter, but also one who performs with great energy and will command a crowd. At every show he converts new people who have never heard or seen him before. He plays a brand of rock and roll that isn’t limited to such genres as Americana, classic rock, or singer-songwriter restraint. It is a brand which celebrates all of rock music’s melodic past, and one which is still familiar to those who love rock and roll, and all the richness and depth it has to offer. His mailing list has ballooned over time, and there is a consistent flow of high quality songs coming out of him, as well as performances - constant performances.
In the spring of 2009, David Newbould relocated to Nashville, TN. He has toured steadily since 2007, and has begun to demand attention as a songwriter worthy of notice. In late 2010, he began work on a new album of his songs with producer Ben Strano. The album features - for the first time in his career – some co-written material, songs written with such folks as Rose Falcon, Adlai Waxman, and Kalisa Ewing. In late 2011, he struck up a professional relationship with veteran manager Fred Kewley (Harry Chapin, Chet Atkins). His new album, Tennessee, was released in April 2013.
David grew up in Toronto, Canada, but has made the US his target audience. His fan base is currently made up largely of groups of loyal supporters, but as he continues to release music and widen his audience, the larger and more universal his appeal will become.
