Born and raised in New York City, Duchovny attended Princeton University (where he played one season as shooting guard on the school’s basketball team), received his Masters Degree in English Literature from Yale and was on the road to earning his Ph.D. when he caught the acting bug.
Subsequently, Duchovny emerged to become one of the most highly acclaimed actors in Hollywood. The star of Fox Television’s monster hit “The X-Files,” David was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, he was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his highly acclaimed and some say risqué appearances on THE LARRY SANDERS SHOW. In January 1997, David won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. He has been nominated for a total of three Golden Globes, three Screen Actors Guild and a TV Critic’s Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. The press and the public both agree that Duchovny brings a fierce intellect, a quiet intensity and an acerbic wit to his roles on both the small screen and the silver screen.
His other long running series CALIFORNINCATION ended its 7 year run this past summer for Showtime. Hank Moody marked another seminal character portrayed by David that has made its way into the pop culture lexicon and for whose portrayal he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy series.
His first novel HOLY COW was released by Farrar Straus and Giroux in February 2015 and hit the New York Times Best Sellers list.
In May of 2015, David completed his first studio album for Think Say Records and was distributed by Caroline.
David and his band will be performing songs from his 2015 debut Hell or Highwater along with some brand new tracks.
