David Gillespie

Them Bowery Boys

David Gillespie is a singer-songwriter based in New York. Originally from Australia, he has called the city home for the past five years. Prior to arriving in New York he spent time in Melbourne, Toronto and Sydney, in addition to having spent his childhood in Hong Kong.

The net result is a thoroughly mixed-up accent and a global point of view. 

His music meanwhile is the sum of many parts; raised on The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and The Doobie Brothers, he found his way through Springsteen and Prince to modern acts like War On Drugs and Gary Clark Jr. The focus regardless has been the songwriting craft: lyric and melody, conflict and (sometimes) resolution.

Them Bowery Boys is his upcoming release, preceded by the single Jackson Square; a nondescript park in the West Village of New York City.
