David Bridie

Experience international music legend David Bridie Burrina.

David Bridie has been pushing boundaries in the Australian music scene for many years. The award winning songwriter and composer has enjoyed a distinguished career as one of Australia’s most innovative artists - whether as an International soundtrack composer; a leading expert on and producer of Melanesian music; as a uniquely Australian songwriter and piano player; and as singer with bands Not Drowning, Waving and My Friend the Chocolate Cake - Bridie has certainly stamped his mark.

His songs are intelligent observations of the Australian experience, ranging from wry – and often bleak –comments on the politics of daily life to the beauty of a simple love song.

Hear him performing from his latest album Wake.
