Most independent musicians in Canada try their hand at making a go of a music career, and support themselves with some sort of nine to fiver, in order to reach the next level. David Newberry however, did this backwards. He injured his hand while working as an assistant carpenter, and picked up a guitar as a form of physiotherapy, sensibly nurturing his love for punk music. Not long after, a songwriter was born, ala Dylan or Springsteen, and Newberry began the journey of finding out what ‘folk’ might sound like. In his words, and in the meaning of it all, Newberry compares to the singer-songwriters of the 60′s, observing aspects of society and protesting injustice, all while rocking out with a rootsy, blue-collar vibe. In his spare time, David Newberry also produces NewbsRadio.com, with his pal Eric Newby. It’s a music-based website and podcast with commentary that goes out of its way to point out that even though nothing is new, that doesn’t mean it can’t be exciting.
