David Thomas Broughton

British songwriter/improvisor David Thomas Broughton may help you rethink possibilities. He constructs suites of songs out a combination of purpose and accident, tonality and sound, absurdity and sincerity, coherence and incoherence. He sings these surprisingly tuneful pieces in an unlikely, plummy baritone, whisking listeners along to the peculiar opportunities of the moment. There's no one else like him, and host David Garland invites Broughton into the WNYC Studio to perform and talk about his music. Broughton performs a set solo, and a set with Viking Moses (Brendon Massei), piano.

Excellent. I cannot recommend highly enough seeing DTB live - and then going to see him again the next day. He is interesting, intense, funny, moving, brilliant and always different.
