Artist Bio
David PackOne of music's most distinctive voices, David Pack has won acclaim worldwide for both his insightful solo work and as the charismatic lead vocalist--and guitarist--for the celebrated progressive pop-rock group Ambrosia. As a songwriter, Pack's compositions took the band to the top of the charts repeatedly, and have delivered hits for a diverse group of artists. As a record producer, he's worked with many of the biggest names in music, his collective works selling over 30 million units. Pack's imprint producing and music directing truly major events includes the masterminding of President Clinton's two star-studded inaugural galas.David Pack first rose to stardom when Ambrosia's debut hit, 1975's "Holdin' On To Yesterday," captured the pop culture consciousness, followed by the blockbuster 1978 #3 Billboard single "How Much I Feel." Before Ambrosia disbanded in '82, Pack penned them two more signature smashes (and 3 million plus BMI airplay award winners)--both reincarnated on his new album--"Biggest Part Of Me" and "You're The Only Woman." The band's legacy was honored in 2001 with Warner Bros.' Anthology, a "best of" compilation also featuring three new tracks.Pack's debut solo album was the 1986 Warner Bros. release Anywhere You Go, executive produced by Lenny Waronker, with the stand-outs "I Just Can't Let Go" and "Prove Me Wrong," the latter also featured in the Taylor Hackford (Ray)-directed motion picture White Nights. 2004's Unborn, introducing a dozen diverse songs written over the years but never before recorded, is Pack's only other solo disc prior to The Secret Of Movin' On.The years in between have been filled with a much-lauded career as a visionary producer, which began in 1983 when Quincy Jones connected David with Patti Austin for multiple projects. Two decades-plus later, his production credits include work with artists Kenny Loggins, Aretha Franklin, Michael McDonald, Phil Collins, Selena, Wynonna, CeCe Winans, Natalie Cole, Chick Corea, James Ingram, Patti Labelle, and Trisha Yearwood, among many others. Notable highlights also include the GRAMMY¨-winning Best Contemporary Gospel Album Handel's Messiah-A Soulful Celebration ('95) and Tribute: The Songs Of Andre Crouch ('96).The most personally meaningful to Pack of all his many projects as a producer is 1996's RIAA Gold CD The Songs Of West Side Story (with Phil Collins's Top 5 hit "Somewhere"), an all-star tribute to music legend Leonard Bernstein, who was also godfather to Pack's eldest daughter. Most recently, Pack produced the multi-artist Time-Life CD Committed 2 Rock, featuring an enviable line-up of top modern rock and contemporary Christian acts--including Dave Matthews, Creed, Moby, and Nickelback--performing positive-skewed songs. The project was the first one conceived by Mpowered Ideas, the independent media company Pack co-founded in 2001.As David Pack returns to recording for the first time in many years, he says, "I've had the great blessing to do so many wonderful projects with stars from classical, jazz, rock, pop, and gospel music, yet I feel like I'm only just hitting my own stride artistically. It feels like exactly the right time to be recording again, to bring all these things together.
Review David Pack has released an interesting pack of songs that celebrate his musical heritage with Ambrosia as well as his solo career. David's silky smooth, melodic songs gave Ambrosia great success. This collection includes jazzy renditions of "Biggest Part of Me" and "You're the Only Woman." However, this is more than a revisit to the past as Pack continues to find new and interesting ways to satisfy his musical talents. The title track to the album is a duet with Heart's Ann Wilson. Listening in as two of the best vocalists around sing an inspired and heartfelt song is always a treat. Ms. Wilson is not the only notable on David Pack's album as Timothy B. Schmidt lends a hand to "Where We Started From." Having an Eagle on your album tends to make people raise a curious eye. The most amazing track on the album features Steve Perry returning to singing on the national scene for the first time since leaving Journey.
