Pickup Name


David Singer is a songwriter and musician based in Chicago. His new album is called Arrows, and it will be available to all interested parties in the summer of 2010. He has previously released four LPs, East of the Fault Line, The Stars Burn Out, Civil Wars, and The Cost of Living, as well as numerous other singles, compilations, etcetera, etcetera. Recently, David scored Steppenwolf Theatre’s August: Osage County, winner of 5 Tony Awards including Best Play. David was previously known to dozens as the frontman of the critically adored and widely ignored band Kid Million. He has nearly thirty stitches in his head, all acquired before his fourth birthday. David also plays in a band called Doris and has been trying for years to get into The Poncey Lads. He does not own cowboy boots, nor does he intend to.

David and his band have shared the stage with such luminaries as Spoon, Robyn Hitchcock, Neko Case, Beulah, The Lemonheads, blah, blah, blah. His talented accompanists are sometimes billed as The Sweet Science. David is “classically trained”, if by “classically trained” you mean he took four guitar lessons from a hippie in the late 70s and six piano lessons in 2006. His favorite basketball player of all time is Ron Harper. David is on the Board of Directors of the Intonation Music Workshop and is one of the directors of Chicago’s Intonation Music Festival. He once appeared on the cover of a Life cereal box, and also got three callbacks for Kramer vs. Kramer before they chose someone who looked exactly like his brother. His photo series “Traffic Cones” was shortlisted for the 2008 Whitney Biennial. David composes music for progressive candidates and causes around the U.S., including NRDC, American Cancer Society, Congresswoman Melissa Bean (D-IL) and Congressman Harry Mitchell (D-AZ). His cat, Malik, is named after Phife from A Tribe Called Quest. His fake ID in high school listed his name as Glenn Tilbrook. Only one of the above statements is false.
