Dave Brooks

Owner & Executive Director,
Amplify Media
Long Beach, CA, USA
Dave Brooks is the Founder and Editor of Amplify Media, covering the music business through his must-read newsletter The Real. Dave grew up in the Bay Area, graduated from UC Santa Cruz and moved south to LA in 2004 to work as a staff reporter for the LA Times Co. He was the managing editor of Venues Today for eight years, leaving in 2014 to launch ampthemag.com. A year later, Amplify became Powered by Pollstar, paving the way for The Real to appear weekly in Pollstar’s print magazine.
