David's voice and songwriting skills have graced radio for over 25 years through his hits for the group Ambrosia, Holdin’ On To Yesterday, Biggest Part of Me, How Much I Feel and You're The Only Woman, all Grammy nominated songs and the #1 hit he wrote for General Hospital TV star Jack Wagner in 1984, All I Need. His collected works have sold over 40 million units worldwide.
A key to David’s musical diversity is his two principal musical mentors for over 25 years are friends Quincy Jones and the late Leonard Bernstein. He has produced platinum and gold selling Grammy-nominated records for artists such as Kenny Loggins, Wynonna, Aretha Franklin, Michael McDonald, Linda Ronstadt, Brian McKnight, CeCe Winans, Patti Austin, Andrae Crouch and others.
In 2005 David released a solo CD, The Secret of Movin On, featuring special guests including Ann Wilson of Heart, Steve Perry of Journey, the Eagles' Timothy B. Schmidt and good friend and jazz legend David Benoit, yielding two top ten national hits, rave reviews from pop and jazz critics—including Jazziz’ top five best CD’s of 2005.
He has also served as a music director of global special events, including both of President Clinton's Arkansas Ball Inaugural Galas, Barbra Streisand and Elton John's Aids Project L.A. Commitment to Life Concert and Oprah Winfrey's Volunteer Summit with George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Colin Powell, and other dignitaries.
Other projects have included a music CD titled The Purpose of Christmas based on Pastor Rick Warren’s Christmas message of 2006, The Songs of West Side Story, a tribute to his late friend and godfather to his daughter, Leonard Bernstein, and in 2008 his first ever musical The Bubble-A Musical Dot Comedy based on the dot.com bubble burst of 2000, as well as songs and background music for television, radio and the movies.
David continues to tour across America with a top-notch live band.
