David Bridie is a contemporary folk musical artist from Melbourne, Australia. Bridie first rose to prominence as a member of Not Drowning, Waving, which he started in the early 1980s with guitarist John Phillips. They released four albums on Australian independent labels to critical acclaim 
Their fifth album, Tabaran, was almost released internationally through Warner Brothers, but dropped at the last minute. In the early 1990's, Bridie formed My Friend The Chocolate Cake with Helen Mountford as an offshoot. However, the new band became Bridie's main focus when Not Drowning Waving broke up after the release of the 1992 Circus album.
As of 2006, My Friend the Chocolate Cake has released six albums. Bridie has released two solo albums Act of Free Choice in 2000 and "Hotel Radio" in 2003. Bridie has also written a number of soundtracks for Australian movies and television most notably The Man Who Sued God in 2001, and Remote Area Nurse in 2006.
