David Brodie started playing the electric bass at the age of thirteen and first took on the upright bass at nineteen while enrolled at Berklee College of Music. After a year in Spain, he returned to his native Philadelphia where he quickly joined up with guitarist Jimmy Bruno, with whom he played for the next several years. From that point, his reputation well established, Brodie has enjoyed a busy playing and recording career and has performed with some of the world’s greatest jazz musicians including Kurt Rosenwinkel, Chris Potter and Randy Brecker while performing regularly with some of Philadelphia’s finest such as Larry McKenna, John Swana, and Joanna Pascale.
