David G Steele
David has been a mainstay of the Chicago session scene dating back to the late 70's where he observed his father and grandfather, both of whom were "first call" session players, in the thriving jingle scene. He attended and observed literally hundreds of commercial and album music sessions growing up in the 70's and 80's. He watched the best composers and session cats implement the art of commercial music production on a weekly basis as a child and teen. That has given him invaluable insight into what works and how to achieve it.
Today, he is a music producer and recording studio owner. "I write production music all day, every day. I have a catalog of 700 original music compositions published worldwide. I have composed music and designed sound for fortune 500 companies. Some TV spot credits include: Target, McDonald's, Nintendo, Disney, Verizon, Alberto Culver, Proctor and Gamble, Kellogg's, General Mills, General Motors, Hyundai, Anheuser Bush, Kraft, Honda, Wal Mart, and many more. Each week my tracks are licensed into TV shows, advertisements, films, corporate videos, and retail stores. I co-write songs with collaborators in the U.S. and Europe and have produced dozens of children's songs projects in English, Spanish, and French for some of the largest publishers in the world.
My music has aired in every continent in the world. Some notable TV show credits include: Fox NFL, Fox Major League Baseball, The Jay Leno Show (NBC), American Pickers (History Channel), So You Think You Can Dance (ABC), Saturday Night Live (NBC), The Carson Daily Show (NBC), The Voice (NBC) and many others.
