David is one of the most fierce and powerful political songwriters in the world. Based in Portland, Oregon he travels the globe playing for audiences large and small at cafes, pubs, universities, churches, union halls and protest rallies.
He will make you laugh, he will make you cry, he will make the revolution irresistible.
"If the great Phil Ochs were to rise from the dead today, he would probably be hailed as the new David Rovics..." ~ Andy Kershaw
