David Burchfield debuts new band with a video and an upcoming show with Thunder and Rain, McCloskey and Miller at Globe Hall.
Originally from Kansas City, David Burchfield is a singer-songwriter with a sound that lands somewhere between Jason Isbell, Wilco, and Gillian Welch. Burchfield is debuting his new Denver band, the Fire Guild, with a debut show at Globe Hall along with Thunder and Rain and McCloskey and Miller this Friday (June 2). To show off their new sound, the band has released a live video of the song “The Beginning.”

David Burchfield is new to Denver, but not to making original and innovative folk music. Drawing from influences from Jason Isbell to Wilco to Gillian Welch, David’s music has been called “spare, lovely, and interested in the mystical” (The Pitch Magazine). The Kansas City Star said he puts “a charming and disarming twist on old-time country, folk and string-band music.”
Emerging from a long hiatus with a full band, Burchfield is bringing a rock sound to his folk roots. The band lineup is stacked with accomplished local players: Neil McCormick (Kid Reverie, Glowing House, Safe Boating, Boulder Acoustic Society) plays upright bass, Jess Parsons (Glowing House) is on keys and vocals, Danica Cunningham (Wood Belly, Pistols in Petticoats, Von Stomper, Ginny Mules) plays fiddle and Dax Jordan is on drums.
