Alejandro Escovedo used to call him the Sensitive Boy - more than the lead guitarist in his band, but his right hand man in many ways. Now, David Pulkingham is branching out on his own, singing his own songs, and of course playing the guitar, better than just about anyone. Indie Sounds got the scoop on the solo move and what's next.
Indie Sounds: After quite a few years playing with Alejandro Escovedo, you've decided to do your own thing. That's a pretty big move, so why did you make it?
David Pulkingham: I first played with Alejandro in 2000. My first gig with him was a taping of Austin City Limits. For the last seven years, I have been on just about every gig he has played ... up until last month.
