About Dave Brogan
Dave Brogan – Drummer/Multi-Instrumentalist/Composer
Dave Brogan’s music encompasses everything from psychedelic funk to poppy jam-rock to meditative synth drone ensembles. Brogan started learning both piano and percussion at the age of seven. His piano studies took him in the direction of music theory, songwriting and composition, and drum studies at UCSB, where he hooked up with the west-coast jam outfit ALO – pulling triple duty as drummer, songwriter and occasional lead singer. He has recorded multiple albums with the band including Fly Between Falls, Roses & Clover and this year’s release Man Of The World produced by Jack Johnson, all for Brushfire Records/Universal.
In January of 2008, Brogan headed into the studio to record material he’d been developing over the last few years. Tim Bluhm, lead singer and guitarist of California cult band The Mother Hips, produced and appeared on the record. Ranging from atmospheric acoustic folk to pseudo arena-rock anthems, the songs on the album reflect Brogan’s continued dedication to the eclectic. He also plays most of the instruments on the album, which features guest artists Jackie Greene, Paul Hoaglin, Tim Young, bandmate Dan Lebowitz and others. The album, titled Thunderbird Sun Transformation, was released in October 2008. He continues to tour in support of TST and debut new material with a stellar line-up including members of Tea Leaf Green, Garrin Benfield and Evil Farmer. Dave has also become an instrumental fixture in the Bay Area music scene. He plays and tours with various side projects. Check out more info on all of them at davebrogan.com
