Jump to navigation Jump to search. David Roland Rodriguez (January 1, 1952 – October 26, 2015) was a folk music singer-songwriter, performer and poet. David Rodriguez (singer-songwriter) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search David Roland Rodriguez (January 1, 1952[1] – October 26, 2015) was a folk music singer-songwriter, performer[2] and poet. David Roland Rodriguez was born and raised in Houston, Texas. His paternal roots lay in Mexico, and his mother's older sister, Eva Garza, recorded for Decca Records during the 1950s. At the age of two he contracted polio and as a result Rodriguez wore a leg brace and walked with a cane for the rest of his life. Because his mobility was restricted his parents bought him a guitar. By the age of fourteen David was playing in a rock band, a year later in a folk group, and by the close of his teens was the pianist in an avant-garde ensemble. His early musical influences included Lightnin' Hopkins, Townes Van Zandt, Lydia Mendoza, and Jerry Jeff Walker. By his early twenties, David was a law and economics graduate, based in Austin, Texas, where he spent well over the next decade playing music in Texas listening rooms, practicing law and, in 1990, running for elected public office. In 1992, 1993 and 1994, David Rodriguez was voted the best Texas songwriter in an Austin poll by the music magazine, Third Coast Music. It has been said that Rodriguez's music inspired the work of his fellow songwriters in many ways. His song "The Ballad Of The Snow Leopard And The Tanqueray Cowboy" was recorded by country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett for his 1998 album "Step Inside This House," and by folk artist Melissa Greener for her 2010 album "Dwelling."
