David Bridie is one of Australia’s most prolific and respected songwriters. He has produced six studio albums with Not Drowning, Waving and seven more with beloved, recently retired group My Friend the Chocolate Cake, as well as innumerable film and television soundtracks.
David’s 6th solo album release 'The Wisdom Line' is an immersive multimedia project exploring themes of Melbourne, asylum, home, the transience of our relationships, and trying to make genuine connections in an interconnected world where everyone is talking on their phones. Each of the 11 tracks featured on 'The Wisdom Line' have been paired with a short film created by a selection of local and international filmmakers including Andrew Wiseman, Keith Deverell, Stephanie Gould (USA), and Matej Kolmanko (Slovenia).
The Wisdom Line as a live performance involves a fully curated show featuring sparse soundscapes, captivating visuals, spoken word elements and a four-piece band.
“Gorgeous washes of melancholy electronics; minimal piano and percussion accompaniment; thoughtful understated lyrics and a clear understanding of the compelling ambience that can be created by the interplay of lyrics, music and images.” ****1/2 - The Age/Sydney Morning Herald
“Even when it’s not composed for film or television, David Bridie’s music radiates cinematic characteristics....intensely moving” - The Australian
