About

Soulful. Emphatic. Dynamic. Melodically accessible. That’s the best way to describe DAVID POLLACK, the Portland, OR-based alt rock frontman who believes in the power of a good song.

Pollack whet his chops as a teen performing in the all ages NYC rock club scene, while spending summers at Buck’s Rock Creative Arts Camp and the Berklee School of Music. He then released a collection of bedroom demos entitled Out the Other Side (2010) after returning from two years of college in Burlington, Vermont.

Over the next several years, Pollack played in several bands, recorded his debut full-length solo record entitled Put It Into Words (2014) while finishing his studies at Fordham University in New York. He began to find his sound with a combination of constant gigging in New York City’s gritty venues, busking regularly in the Bethesda Fountain section of Central Park, and touring up and down the East Coast.

When the Lights Turn Blue (2015), a collection of songs about dealing with depression produced by Gian Stone (Maroon 5), saw Pollack exploring a darker, sophisticated roots rock sound. And then, he began to explore further into alt. rock territory: from the starry-eyed “I Saw Your Future” (2015) produced by Phillippe Lachance, to the expansive “Crashing Through A Loss of Sound” (2016) produced by Felix McTeigue (Florida Georga Line) and Drew Guido. In 2018, Pollack relocated across the country to Portland, OR and made many trips to Seattle to work with longtime friend and producer Jon Henshaw to create a more electronic and experimental based album titled Realignment (2018).

This year brings forth both National and European tour dates leading towards a new EP that goes back to Pollack’s Power Pop roots in September.

Lyrics

Creating Dying Life

You talk about it when you’re on a ride
You shout about it when you’re on the sidelines
You let your nervous ticks twerk and twerk
You let your curiosities find work
Get laid off
Dig the dirt

You talk about it when you’re on the go.
You shout about it when the man up high says no,
I want more
To this life
Then I’ve scored.
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out

You talk about it when you cruise in your car
You whine about it when your engine light turns on.
You’ve gone too far
Through the night
Endlessly
Take a hike.
Let me out
Let me out

You talk about it when you’re on the edge.
Just know there is meaning to the end
Jumping off
Setting score
Creating dying life, Creating dying life, let me out
Creating dying life, let me out
Creating Dying Life
