About David Driver
David Driver (b. 1962) is an American singer, performer, songwriter, and video artist. A staple on the downtown New York City music scene, he first achieved prominence in the mid-1990s, with his band MEOW, his role in Roy Nathanson’s Fire at Keaton’s Bar and Grill, and a stint as the understudy for the roles of Roger and Mark in the original Broadway cast of RENT. The Village Voice’s Rob Tannebaum credited Driver with creating “an oblique Downtown twist on saloon singing, devoid of melodrama, like Jerry Vale dreaming of Chet Baker.” The Advocate’s Andrew Velez wrote that Driver’s voice “is as bracing as a double Bourbon.” Driver has worked with luminaries like Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Elvis Costello, Debbie Harry, Heidi Rodewald, Stew, Richard Butler, and Roy Nathanson & The Jazz Passengers, and was in the the cult Off-Broadway rock opera PEOPLE ARE WRONG! He’s been featured on The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and The Late Show with David Letterman.
