By Jay Ross Martin III Exerpt From Conroe Courier, Friday 10-17-03

Late Saturday afternoon even I was in for a surprise as one of the more obscure acts at the festival took the Texas Arts Venue Stage and blew me and the modest crowd out of our seats. David Brake & That Damn Band proved there are always diamonds in the rough, you just have to be lucky enough to find them. Brake, a local Houston singer/songwriter, was backed up by a great band led by the popular Beaumont guitar slinger, Scott Mcgill. His set comprised of about 90 percent his original compositions and 10 percent covers. Brake plays both piano and guitar, sings well, has wonderful stage presence, and showed he may be one of the most eclectic songwriters in all of Texas. He obviously refuses to be pigeon-holed in one genre of music as one song will have a country feel, the next a jazzy lounge feel, the next a southern rock sound and he even has a delta blues sounding composition titled, "Born in a Bad Mood," featuring Brake himself on acoustic bottleneck slide guitar. His songs all have superb arrangements and great lyrics. He definitely has this John Lennon meets Hank Williams Jr. meets Billy Joel thing going.
