The David Brothers

Brothers Eric and Judd David were introduced to each other years ago by their parents. Before “The David Brothers,” the two have recorded an album of instrumental guitar duets, four rock albums, created a guitar school to pay rent, cooked burritos for thousands of people, lived/toured in a van for 16 months...basically found a way to survive together through music. Smells Like America is the debut CD featuring the two siblings singing together in harmony. The record was made casually over seven months in Banana Chicken Studios on Melrose, a small gem in the heart of L.A. All of the songs on Smells Like America were recorded live as a trio with producer/engineer Jamie Candiloro on bass. Nothing was forced, rushed or even thought about for more than an easy moment. As they approached close to twenty new tunes they decided to pull back, create an EP and share. Lyrically, the album reflects on the styles of intimate, thoughtful songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Paul Simon. Judd holds firmly to his pen and acoustic guitar while Eric approaches each song as an opportunity to try and "capture" the lyrics, whether on guitar, mandolin, harmonica or banjo. The goal of this record was good vibes and performances. Quickly, The David Brothers found themselves adding members for the live shows. Around them now sits upright bass, percussion, piano, and a third female harmony. Smells Like America will be available on itunes and CD Baby this July!

I’d rather watch Mexican TV
Than to finish this talk with you
There’s no other end of the bargain
I’ve done everything I can do
There’s a war outside won’t you let me in
I’m not the traitor saving his skin
I’m not saving my skin

If you want to drink
You better do it right
If you want to argue
then put up a fight
If you want to cry
Than do it at night
Because I don’t want to see
If you want to go
then go and hit the road
If you want to stay
Just say so
If you want love
Let it be me

I’d rather dig a hole to china
Than to go on convincing you
I’m not like the ones who came before
Don’t compare this to something you knew
Our days are numbered and I don’t want to count
One of these days they’ll all run out
One of these days they’ll all run out

So if you want to drink
You better do it right
If you want to argue
then put up a fight
If you want to cry
Than do it at night
Because I don’t want to see
If you want to go
then go and hit the road
If you want to stay
Just say so
If you want love
Let it be me
