David Gamson


David Gamson has been messing around with sounds, songs, and arrangements for years. As keyboardist/writer/producer for the 80’s band Scritti Politti, he guided the brightly colored, synth-driven sound that was to create several hits in the UK and the U.S. For a band that started as a punk-based band, the migration to a soulful, yet groove-based sound was designed primarily by Gamson. Today, he works as an independent producer and songwriter working with artists such as Chaka Khan, Me’shell Ndegeocello, Green Gartside, Sheila E., George Benson, Miles Davis, Al Jarreau, and has garnered several Grammy nominations for his work. His musical heritage was a natural training ground for him….having worked in a recording studio out of college and even having a father who was Leonard Bernstein’s assistant. It was the making of a talented producer, writer, and arranger who has become the “scritti” behind many artists today. Inside MusiCast welcomes David Gamson.
