This man is possibly unknown in Europe - information about him and his music are poor. But here are some fragments of articles which I have found:

David Brewbaker was born in Richmond, Virginia and began writing songs when he was thirteen. He spent many years performing on stage and in clubs around New York, Colorado and New Mexico. He played country, rock, folk, blues and jazz.  He’s composed a lot of songs, jingles, sung them, and written music for industrial and documentary films. Nowadays Brewbaker lives in Maine, and works in his project studio...

His work includes writing and recording with the late producer Norman Petty of Buddy Holly fame, and he studied with guitarists Jack Wilkins, John Scofield and Steve Kahn. 

The debut album - the seven tracks on the newly released A Sign of Life - shows the songwriter’s lock on raucous, daring arrangements commanded by lyrics that are both moving and muscular.

A Sign of Life will please devotees of Bruce Cockburn as well as Bonnie Raitt, Steely Dan, J.J. Cale, Mark Knopfler, and Dave Alvin, while at the same time reinforcing the artist’s own genre-busting sound through unsparing use of an eclectic musical palette. Its perfect blend of roots, rock and jazz,  Maybe it could be called modern Americana...

The CD was recorded at Brewbaker’s studio in Cape Elizabeth, Maine and mastered at The Studio in Portland (Tab Benoit, James Cotton, Patty Larkin, Ronnie Earl). A Sign of Life is now available online at CD Baby.com
