Live performances are sometimes unsettling, and feel at risk of everything falling apart. Somehow David Thomas Broughton remains in control. Since David's first few shows in his native Yorkshire in the early 2000s, he has performed at numerous festivals, toured extensively across the UK, Europe, USA and played a handful of shows in Japan, Korea and China.
His organic approach to loops includes all glitches and mistakes, building pieces to let them destroy themselves, before swiftly moving into the next. On the face of it, a performance of sad self-deprecating songs and extended 'sonic strangeness' pondering the awkwardness of the human condition through the trial of love and loss. For those with patience it can reward with great moments of beauty, and sometimes comedic delight.

Since his critically acclaimed 2004 debut The Complete Guide to Insufficency, which garnered an 8.4 review on Pitchfork, David has continued to produce records which delightfully interweave layers of beauty and discomfort, releasing both solo home-recorded and collaborative work.
Collaborations include the 2007 album with jazz-folk chamber quartet 7Hertz, 2010's 'Outbreeding' with producer Andy Ramsey (Stereolab), 'Sliding The Same Way' with classical vocal trio Juice in 2014, and working with a number of guest artists on his magnum opus, 2016's 'Crippling Lack'.
