David Newberry sings folk music with rock sensibilities. Or is it the other way around? His songs provide insights into the complex contemporary social world. His 2010 CD, "When We Learn The Things We Need To Learn", established him as a legitimate force in Canadian music, catching the eye of several of Canada's roots-elite, including Juno winner David Francey, who calls him "absolutely brilliant...," and EXCLAIM! Magazine, who pegged him way back then as "an artist to watch," more recently upgrading him to "evidence that Canadian roots music is in good hands." At 20 years old, while training as a carpenter, a construction accident left him without the use of his left hand. When his physiotherapist suggested learning an instrument as a means to rebuild his strength, he chose the guitar, and never looked back, emerging quickly as poet with a hankering for noise. His newest record "No One Will Remember You" was released in March 2012 on Vancouver's Northern Electric Label.
