IP Welcomes David Rosenberg!

From his beginnings as drummer-for-hire during the Punk and New Wave movement to his status as first call session ace on recordings with iconic artists including Bob Dylan, Alice Cooper, Chaka Khan, Carol King, Madonna, and Chris Botti, David Rosenberg has never slowed in his pursuit to grow and evolve as an artist. When the performing and recording climate changed, David moved into composing and there again cut a new path as an innovator, building lush soundscapes with the computer based technologies for all the major TV Networks as well as advertising giants DDB, Grey, Ogilvy, and Lowe. Presently, David can be seen preforming in the US and abroad with Stoned Soul Picnic: The Laura Nyro Songbook, and scoring soundtracks for documentary films.
