David Lombard

BIOGRAPHY

 

David Lombard’s self-titled project’s backbone rests on melodic guitar fingerpicking and a soulfully expressive “Don McLean-like voice” (Bernard Dagnies, Musiczine [FR\BE]), a combination resulting in the singer-songwriter’s genuinely “gritty folk-rock quality that we could never tire of” (Tom Haugen, Take Effect [US]). Inspired by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and The War On Drugs, as well as by Henry D. Thoreau, and Emily Dickinson, he has been performing his heartfelt but humble songs alone throughout Belgium since 2012, and accompanied by a band since 2018.

 

David Lombard’s well-received debut album “Looking for a Dream” was released in 2019 on the independent record labels “Homerecords” (CD) and “Freaksville Publishing” (digital). It is a concept album featuring solo acoustic as well as electric (with a full band) versions of mid-tempo intense and uplifting “tracks that drive out your fears and doubts, and replace them with a dreamer’s confidence and belief” (Tom Hilton, Aldora Britain Records [UK]).
