About the Artist
David Broza is not like any entertainer performing today. Transcending national and artistic boundaries, this guitarist-composer sings in English, Hebrew and Spanish -- and with his flamenco and salsa-tinged folk-rock melodies and keen talent for breathing musical life into sensual snippets of poetry, Broza is a formidable musical force of nature. He commands and captivates his audience heart, mind, soul and gut. "Even when he performs solo, the way he finger-picks and drums on that guitar at the same time, you'd think there were five people on stage," declared one music biz exec. Hollywood Reporter says that Broza "brings a powerful amalgam of influences to his work and commands the room with intensity." A critic at the Baltimore Sun writes, "Broza draws on old folk-rock and then adds urban passion. He is a captivating, compelling performer who masters his guitar into submission." Critics have labeled him as a post-modern Leonard Cohen, the Stevie Ray Vaughn of folk rock, the Mel Gibson of rock n' roll, the Bruce Springsteen of Israel -- and all five Gypsy Kings rolled into one! His performance career includes headlining with Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Jose Feliciano and other superstars in Israel's yearly Masada concert and other special events, dueling guitar solos on stage with Sting, performing at the Rabin Memorial in Madison Square Garden at the request of President Clinton -- and giving time and song to his appointment as goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and other humanitarian causes. A modern-day troubadour traveling the globe with his unique blend of urban folk rock, the world of David Broza is passionate, dedicated and unique.
With twenty three albums to his name, Broza continues to forge his way with a style so diverse that he has passionate fans in every corner of the world. Critics have labeled Broza as a post-modern Leonard Cohen, the Bruce Springsteen of Israel and all five Gypsy Kings rolled into one!
He became a superstar in his homeland of Israel by his early 20's with his quadruple platinum debut album, 'The Woman By My Side." 16 gold, platinum and multi-platinum releases later, the Jewish Music Group, along with David Broza, has hand-picked songs on this "Best Of."
okay, did it settle in yet...?

Critics have labeled him as a post-modern Leonard Cohen (holy shit! that's post-post-modern)
the Stevie Ray Vaughn of folk rock (good lord!!!)
the Mel Gibson of rock n' roll (what the f^@k!!!?)
the Bruce Springsteen of Israel (the springstein if you will)
...and all five Gypsy Kings rolled into one!
(FUCK!!! have you ever heard ONE gypsy king, that is as loud and intense as your ears could stand before your brains jump screaming out of your head and take cover...)
he has a song about shoelaces and also does a cover version of the 70's latin-rock masterpiece "Suavecito"
