David’s multi Platinum career, includes working  with the likes of Justin Bieber, Journey, Shawn Mendes, Meghan Trainor, Tenille Townes, Nashville Tv Show, Keith Urban, John Oates, Vince Gill, and many others. His Studio “Addiction Sound Studios” which he partners with Jonathan Cain (The Baby’s, Bad English, Journey) designed by Chris Huston (Led Zeppelin, The Who) is one of the top rated private studios in Nashville, TN, and perhaps North America. 


David became friends with Jadea, while she was renting his guest house apartment, living and writing songs in Nashville. Being a fellow Canadian music maker, they fell into many of the same circles, had written together, and often discussed finding something to work on together. When the opportunity to cut a version of “Amazing Grace” for the film “Met While Incarcerated”, Jadea reached out to David, and they joined forces in the studio in late 2017 to create this contribution to the film’s soundtrack.
