Singer, songwriter and multi-talented instrumentalist David Bromberg is preparing to release his new album "Big Road" on April 17th. His experienced backing band have taken these twelve tracks of originals and favorites and helped David flesh out this new set of standards. The album begins with the swinging, up-tempo blues of the title song "Big Road," followed by the swift, swinging country rhythm of "Lovin' Of The Game." Bromberg and his band slow down the pace for the gentle touch of "Just Because You Didn't Answer," then pays homage to his inspirations with the country twang of "George, Merle & Conway." He looks to lift up your soul with the short, clap-along, gospel singing of "Standing In The Need Of Prayer," before delivering the instrumental ballad "Maiden's Prayer/Blackberry Blossom/Katy Hill." The David Bromberg Band wrap up their new album with the classic Leadbelly track "Take This Hammer," but done with a bluegrass swing, along with the acoustic, storied tale of "Roll On John."
