David Newbould

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 certain executives at Universal Music, Sony Canada, RCA Records, North Star Music Group, and Primary Wave Music Publishing.
If Dan Wilson and Pete Yorn had a folkier kid brother, he’d be David Newbould. Wielding a voice as wearily distinctive as Shawn Mullins, Newbould sings every word with a dusty radiance. Though his adeptness with hazy sketches predominates, Newbould blazes brightest when blurring alternate hues of exhaustion and exuberance—a talent especially evident on “Empty Arms” (whose stretched-out phrases evoke Wilson’s trademark vocal elasticity), the graceful “Family Man” and rollicking stomper “Nobody Loves Me Like You Do,” fueled by Cindy Cashdollar’s dobro adrenaline rush. When he sings “I’d rather be a man with a broken dream / than one who never had one” under the title track’s simmering desert sheen, he’s not kidding. —Performing Songwriter
