After a number of years performing and recording, David turned his hand to producing his own music and that of musicians he was working with. In 1990 he co-produced "Scatter the Mud" with the other Devils on Horseback members. He later began a collaboration with singer/songwriter Lynn Hazelton on her song "Living Water" which led to a West Australian Music Industry Association Song Contest award in 1993, and for him to produce her album of the same name.

Since that time David has produced a number of film soundtracks, demo recordings and albums, including his "Miles To Go" album, which received outstanding reviews and extensive airplay across the country.

He went on to produce "Deep Dead Blue" for rising singer-songwriter Lara Stephen and 2 albums for the well respected entertainer and award winning songwriter Bernard Carney. His extensive work with Aboriginal musicians led to his producing for indigenous artists Peter Brandy and the "Young Guns" from WA's Kimberley region.

David has given workshops on the role of the record producer - and also presents a "Be the Producer" workshop, which is a 'how to' for artists who are self producing, or want to know more about the process.

Workshop outline

From 2006 - 2013, David has run a songwriting to recording workshops in a number of WA prisons, culminating in the "Songs from the Inside" album which he produced and engineered. The album was released in May of 2010.

He is currently working on a CD project based around Roebourne jail in WA's north west, also involving the Roebourne community.
