David Burke

I'm a UK-based Irish writer with more than thirty years' experience, regular contributor to several music magazines, published author of four books (including one on Van Morrison) and lifelong jazz fan.

About Me

David Burke began writing about music as a staffer on local newspapers in his native Ireland, before decamping to London in 1990. He spent six years working in print, audio and television as part of the World Entertainment News Network. His features appeared in the UK's red tops and international publications such as Esquire (Japan) and Pop Rocky (Germany). David is a regular contributor to R2 (formerly Rock'n'Reel) and Vintage Rock magazines, and author of four books– Crisis in the Community: The African Caribbean Experience of Mental Health (Chipmunka), Heart of Darkness: Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska (Cherry Red), A Sense of Wonder: Van Morrison's Ireland (Jawbone) and Singing Out: A Folk Narrative of Maddy Prior, June Tabor and Linda Thompson (Soundcheck).
