DAVID BURDICK BIO
Burdick was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on the 4th of May, 1953, premature by six weeks or so.
It seems that David was isolated with his family in sub-suburban Burnsville, thus adding to his tormented existence.
He always seemed a bit wacky.....a notch or two off plumb, but that's what made David.
David, along with his cousins: Daniel Wick and Frederick Moore, began writing songs as individuals and sometimes as collaborators.
Burdick's skill as a lyricist was apparent right from the start.
Many of his songs were performed live by the band 'An English Sky' in the late 1960s.
Sadly, Burdick took his own life in the mid-1970s.
