David Bronson launches week of summer tour dates as American Songwriter premieres “Living in Name” single from latest album.

NYC-based songwriter’s new “The Long Lost” follows-up early 2013’s “Story” and completes 22-song “The Long Lost Story” cycle.

“Bronson has soaked up all the best parts of ‘70s rock and created his own vibe.  Captivating.” – MAGNET

“Being just a solo acoustic guitar and voice, it’s the quietest song on what is generally a quiet album,” songwriter David Bronson says of “Living in Name,” the first track taken from his upcoming release, The Long Lost, arriving on September 17th.  The song has premiered exclusively via American Songwriter at this link.  “Emotionally and structurally, though, it’s the purest distillation of the meaning of the whole record.” Bronson will bring material from the album to life starting tomorrow during a week of tour dates throughout the northeast.  See below for details.

The Long Lost was produced Bronson and mixed by Godfrey Diamond (Lou Reed, Sparks, Glen Campbell) and is the more internal-feeling prequel to Bronson’s early-2013 album release Story.  That album earned Bronson attention not only for its songs which evoke the Cat Stevens and Harry Chapin era of songwriting, but also for its inventive videos that were variously featured by Under The Radar, Baeblemusic, My Old Kentucky Blog and others.

The album completes a 22-song cycle titled “The Long Lost Story,” that Bronson has been brewing for close to a decade and which documents what he terms “the most difficult period that I can remember.”  Silver linings being what they are, Bronson also found much to be positive about on the other side of the experience that gave this record its tone.  “I found a clear sense of myself as an artist during this time, so amidst all that discomfort, I also felt truly, undeniably alive.”

As for bringing all of these feelings up nearly a decade after the fact, Bronson explains, “I suppose it’s unusual to release a record so long after its making, but being so far away from where I was during the writing and recording really emphasizes the documentary aspect of the whole thing for me. I’m very happy that this period of my young life was recorded, and very excited to let it out into the world at long last.”

When Bronson isn’t writing and recording his solo material, he can be found working as a contributing composer and editor on filmmaker Jennifer Elster’s “The Being Experience.”  The project is an unflinching look at existence, featuring a cast of actors, thinkers, and musicians including Dave Matthews, Moby, Questlove, Rufus Wainwright, and Yoko Ono among many others.

David Bronson’s The Long Lost is scheduled for release on September 17th.  Bronson is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
