David Bridie

Apart from a handful of one-off compilation appearances, it took sixteen years for David Bridie to step out from behind the band monikers and embark on a solo career. The results, while continuing the tradition of atmosphere soaked songcraft, mark a new direction in production technique and experimentation.
