David Brook is an up and coming songwriter from Massachusetts. David is signed to Universal Records and has worked with influential artists such as Eminem, Neon Hitch, Rome and Benny Blanco. His unique ability to write in almost any genre has landed him in sessions with some of today's biggest pop stars, hip hop acts and indie rockers. David started playing piano at the age of 12 with no training, and cites Billy Joel, Rob Thomas and Chris Martin as his biggest musical inspirations.
Growing up, we would all be in the kitchen about to eat dinner, and all of a sudden, we would hear [David] on the piano playing these amazing love songs. And we would all look at each other and say, "He is only 12! Where did he learn how to play like that?" It was truly amazing and from that point on, his life was dedicated to music. The minute we would get back from school, David would sit at the piano for hours on end.
Although David has worked with some of music's biggest names, he still remains the most humble and down to earth person I know. Not only is he the funniest person (not just saying that because I am his sister), but he has the biggest heart and would literally give you the shirt off his back.
With a truly innate ability to craft melodies and cultivate hooks, David Brook has become a highly buzzed about writer in the industry. Already having some of music's biggest stars record his songs, we expect huge things from this talent in the coming year.
David is a songwriter/producer for Universal Music. He has a new track with Neon Hitch coming out this summer. Alexandra Brook, his sister, works in the fashion industry in New York City.
The moment David walks in a room you instantly notice him. He has a certain presence, a certain charisma if you will which draws your attention and makes it obvious why at such a young age he has worked with the likes of Neon Hitch and Eminem. On top of being insanely talented he's quite an interesting conversationalist who doesn't have any reservations about sharing his opinions on everything from music to some things we just can't write in print.
Denim is universal. Regardless of your style or the kind of lifestyle you lead, denim plays an integral part in all our lives. We identified a select group of distinguished New Yorkers with a unique sense of style to represent DL1961's Denim Movement. Each of the following participants is a personification of the DL1961 brand: a pioneer in their respective profession with notable achievements in his/her undeniably demanding industry. Beginning June 1st and running throughout the summer, we will highlight a progressive New Yorker making great things happen in their field. At the end of August, once all nominees have been revealed, fans can then vote for their favorite denim movement member on our website.
