About

Great songwriting and performances have lit up the skyline of New York City singer songwriter David Pollack’s life and career. From an early age, the music of Paul Simon, James Taylor, and The Beatles inspired David. During high school, David performed at many venues in the New York City rock club scene. He spent his summers in this period at Bucks Rock Creative Arts Camp and the Berklee School of Music summer program, as well as working in internships at Rough Magic Studios and music promotions firm Creative Entertainment Group in New York.

David then enrolled at the University of Vermont, where he was a member of the Jazz Vocal Ensemble and the UVM Top Cats a capella group. Two years later, David moved back to New York City, where he would record and release an EP of lo-fi tracks entitled Out the Other Side. David spent several months touring in support of the album before resuming his college studies in New York at Fordham University. While studying media and communications, David worked at public radio station WFUV, alongside Dennis Elsas and Rita Houston. In 2010, David formed a band called Bridges, with drummer Steele Kratt and bassist Sasha Korolkoff. Bridges would later be joined by new members, actress Julia Barrett Mitchell, lead guitarist Nick Jenkins (now Talent Buyer for New Island Entertainment), and guitarist Daisy Spencer (who would later go on to form The Skins). Bridges released a self-titled EP followed by another titled Groundwork, both in 2011, and played shows for audiences throughout greater New York.

After Bridges disbanded in 2012, David went back into the studio to record a full-length solo record. He worked with Producer and Engineer Oliver Ignatius at Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen and released two singles (titled What Do I Do? and Hot Love). In addition to releasing tracks from the Mama Coco’s sessions, David worked with producers Gian Stone at Stone Studios, Rick Torres at Buskerville Studios in Queens and Gordon Grody (Lady GaGa, Alicia Keys), to create his debut full-length album, entitled “Put It Into Words.” The record was mixed and mastered by Grammy-winner Jon D’Uva (Louis CK, Breaking Benjamin, Paramore) and released in January of 2014. In 2015 David released his second EP, titled “When The Lights Turn Blue,” working again with Producer/Engineer Gian Stone. Later on that year, David teamed up with lyricist Lionel Lombard and Montreal based Producer/Engineer Philippe Lachance to write and release the single, I Saw Your Future.

2016 brings lots of promise for David Pollack, with new material and full band tour dates to be released soon.

Lyrics

Crashing Through A Loss Of Sound

Why do I put up with your energy
like an enemy.
Why do I love a feeling that brings me deep under my sleeve

I can’t hold back
Caught in between
Words can’t come out
Like we’re crashing through a loss of sound

Your smile so bright it hurts.
But does it really work
Walking through circles of kindness and cruelty.
This is new to me.

Can I hold back
Caught in the in between.
Words don’t come out.
Like we’re Crashing through a loss of sound.
I am waiting for it all to turn around.
I am wanting the start but not the end
Like we’re Crashing Through a Loss of sound

Please Tell me what I have done right. Instead of what I done wrong.
Just sing the song
so we can play along
Yeah we can play along.

Can you hold back.
Calling out my name
Words do come out.
Like we’re crashing through a loss of sound
You are waiting for it all to fall down
You are wanting both the middle and the end
Like we’re Crashing Through A Loss Of Sound

Oh the mind body and spirit know this feeling well
I am crying out loud behind some dark cloud.
Though my heart is throbbing and I’m shaking at the knees
Only time
only time will really tell

Like we’re crashing through a loss of sound
We are waiting for the wrongs to turn around
We are wanting a stop to all the fights
Cause we can’t call quits when we say goodnight
Cause we can’t call quits when we say goodnight
Cause we can’t call quits when we say goodnight
