More information

David Van Cortlandt Crosby was born on August 14, 1941 in Los Angeles, California. His parents were Aliph Van Cortlandt Whitehead (a descendent of the prominent Van Cortlandt family) and Floyd Crosby, an Academy Award–winning cinematographer and descendant of the Van Rensselaer family. He is also the younger brother of musician Ethan Crosby. Growing up in California, he attended several schools, including the University Elementary School in Los Angeles, the Crane Country Day School in Montecito, and Laguna Blanca School in Santa Barbara for the rest of his elementary school and junior high. At Crane, he starred in HMS Pinafore and other musicals but was asked not to return because of his lack of academic progress. He graduated from the Cate School in Carpinteria, completing his secondary studies by correspondence. In 1960, his parents divorced, and his father remarried Betty Andrews Crosby.

Crosby briefly studied drama at Santa Barbara City College before dropping out to pursue a career in music. He moved toward the Greenwich Village scene (as a member of the Les Baxter's Balladeers). With the help of producer Jim Dickson, Crosby recorded his first solo session in 1963.
