The songs that have been blessed with his gift have amassed over 4 billion streams. As a producer, he has landed many songs in film and tv as well. In our experience working together, Dave has always brought a positive energy and relentless commitment to chasing down the perfect sound and part to serve the vision of the song. His deep classical training, combined with an obsession of modern sounds, technology, and mainstream sensibilities has put him on the very short list of first call, keyboard session players in the recording industry.
