Kicking off a slower but exciting premiere week, we got David Pollack who’s back with his soulful acoustic driven new single “I’m For You”, the first of four singles to be released this summer as a part of David’s Summer Single Series. The track blends the sensual rhythms of Marvin Gaye with the harmonious vocals of Justin Beiber.
About the song David comments:
I’m For U is a song I co wrote with lyricist Lionel Lombard. I met Lombard a few years ago in a café in New Orleans and we have been working together ever since. Lombard sent me this very simple lyric which I turned into a very simple but soulful journey bridging the melodic and soulful styles of 60’s and 70’s R&B with the polish and Justin Bieber inspired pop music of today.
Soulful and melodically accessible. That’s the best way to describe the music of Portland, OR-based singer/songwriter David Pollack. Inspired from an early age by the music of Paul Simon, the Beatles, and Weezer, David has spent his entire teen and adult life making music and performing at many venues in the New York City rock club scene.
In the middle of his college career, David recorded and release an EP of lo-fi tracks titled Out the Other Side. David spent several months touring in support of the album before resuming his studies at Fordham University in New York. He went on to play in several indie, pop and rock bands before heading back to the studio to record his debut full-length solo record, Put It Into Words. The album 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, an insightful and moving collection of songs about dealing with depression. The EP went on to receive fantastic review from Elmore Magazine and others. In 2016, David released the single “Crashing Through a Loss of Sound,” a hard and heavier look at dealing with the loss and pain that comes with losing something beautiful.
David welcomed 2017 with a big move across the country to beautiful and vibrant Portland, OR. More new music, and West Coast tour dates to come!
