Here's my impersonal bio written in third person:

David Bridwell is a folk singer based in Birmingham, AL. He is interested in bringing people together through music so they can share their unique ideas and experiences. He writes songs which are often noted for their straightforward honest humor, and 14 of his songs have been featured on local radio or TV. He has produced such classics as I Can’t Find a Damn Thing, When You Love Somebody (You Put Up With A Lot Of Shit), The Social Awareness Song, New Pants, Funky Patriotism, Discount Liquor Cigarettes & Beer, and Please Don’t Be a Fucking Idiot. When he wrote a song about a spider that walked across his wall a little bit too fast, he knew he would never run out of new songs.

"You will be famous” - My Mom 

“.... Whereas I do believe that your songwriting is very good and your guitar playing is improving and showing more confidence...................... you sing like a Depression-era Okie!   You're a middle class, well educated, Silicon Valley native. Listen to John Stewart's "California Bloodlines ..." - My Dad

"Clever boy! Don't miss him!" - From Facebook

"One of my favorite New Mexico songwriters. David Bridwell tells it like it is. Life in Albuquerque without apology. Some of which can't be played on the radio." - Michael Roth

"One of the most original and prolific singer songwriters in the Burque ... richly layered Americana sounds ... his lyrics are like the pancakes you wanna roll your body and mind into, his voice the syrup." - Kaatje Gotcha 

"I have pigeonholed u as a disciplined machine that always gets it done no matter what" - From a text
