www.davidrovics.com
Portland activist/troubadour David Rovics tours regularly on four continents, playing for audiences large and small at a range of venues, from pubs and cafes to protest rallies, and using everyday language in his songwriting to expound on subjects such as anti-globalization, social justice, and direct action. Rovics just released his 15th studio album, Meanwhile In Afghanistan, a 12-song folk punk manifesto with plenty of hard-hitting, fast-paced lyrics and driving guitar, featuring lead playing from Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine as well as Portland-based legends Nick Angelo and Asher Fulero. "Wielding his acoustic guitar like Bruce Springsteen putting a wrecking ball through Ani DiFranco's Little Plastic Castle, he uses the hard-edged phrasing of punk poets." --Susan Darlington, Morning Star
