Bio: David Lear

"Docudrama of American under-culture"

David Lear is a writer/balladeer/artist based in Austin TX. With influences from Singer-songwriters including John Prine, Johnny Cash, Lucinda Williams, Jimmy LaFave he writes about the America lost, personal struggles of the working class and  anthems of glory from overcoming adversity. Each story is a condition, a diagnosis or a prescribed pill of the human condition. The celebration of life is echoed through both dirge ballad and uptempo tunes giving hope to the listener.

Balladeer David Lear began to write his Americana tunes in Nob Hill arts district in Albuquerque, NM (and Placitas where his family has been for generations). Eventually he moved to Austin Texas. Here his rockin’ band plays a mixture of Americana, roots, hillbilly rock, alt. country, cowpunk, dust bowl folk & western swing. So hallelujah! Clap your hands and give yourself to song!

He has currently a paperback book titled Elgin Farm, 2 music albums & 3 single releases all available on Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and many other digital stores. He recently provided material for feature film called The Odd Way Home starring Rumer Willis and a song for Portland Fashion Show.

Outlaws of Folk Music - A Monthly Gathering

'OUTLAWS OF FOLK MUSIC SERIES''

Michael Ubaldini’s critically acclaimed Folk & Roots music series that has been going strong for 10 years.   It will now be held & happy to relocate to BOGART'S COFFEE HOUSE every first Thursday of each month.

CBS Los Angeles named it “Best Folk Music show in The OC” in 2017

 

All ages can enjoy the show and artistic vibe. Outlaws is an ongoing folk music series that was created by the ‘rock n roll poet’ Michael Ubaldini who decided as a songwriter and supporter of musicians to start his own ‘Rebel Brand’ of an Acoustic Folk night.

 

He calls it 'Outlaws of Folk Music Series’. Michael hand picks some kindred spirit musicians- established recording artists, touring, local singer songwriters & performers from Los Angeles, Orange County & Long Beach to do the night with him. Each artist does a thirty minute set and sometimes a final 'Sing Out' jam at the end of the show together. It’s the real deal.

 

It’s the held first Thursday of each month. The music and Outlaws Series is spreading. Michael has taken it on the road before and it tours from time to time, but Bogart’s is the new Thursday homebase for the Folk Series in beautiful Seal Beach.

 

Please support the musicians & songwriters.

Outlaws of Folk brings back the attitude & spirit of NY Greenwich Village folk boom of the early 60s with a modern 21st century twist w/songsters relevant to this era as well as “Old traditional’ Folk.” come hang!!

 

October Performers are:

Michael Ubaldini www.rocknrollpoet.com
