David A. Cobb

David writes Houston Calling, an online music column, and for various publications.

About Me

I spend most of my day stuck behind a desk, yet the writing I do in my spare time is what I really enjoy. In addition to Houston Calling, an online music column that is part of the community, I started InMyEar, an email music list. You can read my reviews and musings in Space City Rock,, and Houston Press. I used to play the drums a lot -- now, not as often as I'd like.
