Producer/songwriter David Foster is a 14-time Grammy Award winner with unprecedented 44 nominations. Foster entered the music scene in 1973 and quickly established himself as one of the industry’s premier keyboardists, and has become one of the most sought-after session musicians. During that time, he performed alongside such musical titans as John Lennon, Diana Ross, George Harrison, Rod Stewart and Barbra Streisand.
Throughout the ’80s, Foster produced and wrote several No. 1 singles including Chicago’s “Hard To Say I’m Sorry” (Summer Lovers soundtrack), “The Glory of Love” (Karate Kid Part II soundtrack), and John Parr’s “Man in Motion” (St. Elmo’s Fire soundtrack). Foster also produced platinum-plus selling soundtracks for Ghostbusters and Footloose.
In 1993, Foster was named Billboard Magazine’s "Top Singles Producer" and "Top R&B Producer." He was also the year’s top Grammy nominee with seven nominations, taking home his third award for "Producer of the Year" for The Bodyguard movie soundtrack.
Foster’s producing credits include songs on such albums as Celine Dion’s Grammy Award-winning “Falling Into You,” which spawned his two hit singles, “Because You Loved Me” and “To Love You More.” He also produced Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable” and Barbra Streisand’s “Broadway” and “Back to Broadway.” From 1994-1997, four of his productions – “Unbreak My Heart” (Toni Braxton), “I Will Always Love You” (Whitney Houston), “I Swear” (All-4-One), “Because You Loved Me” (Celine Dion) – each reached No.1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart where they remained for a total of 42 weeks. This translated to holding down the coveted #1 spot for an unprecedented 20% of a 4 year period.
Foster's entrepreneurial spirit and artist-driven success caught the attention of Atlantic Records' brass, who recruited him as vice president in 1994. Foster later founded 143 Records, a joint venture with the Time Warner Corporation, which has recruited a roster of diverse and exceptional talents including Irish singing group The Corrs, Christian Pop sensations Plus One,the Popstars television show, and young pop sensation Josh Groban whose debut album is already triple platinum.
Foster’s recent credits include: the soundtrack for Quest For Camelot, which earned Foster the Golden Globe Award in 1999; “Come What May" (Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor), for the Moulin Rouge soundtrack; "I'll Make It Up As I Go" (Diana Krall), for The Score soundtrack.; "Me Ire" (Alejandro Sanz and The Corrs); and "For Always" (Lara Fabian and Josh Groban).
Foster has spent his entire career supporting children’s charities around the world, including his own organization “The David Foster Foundation”. The David Foster Foundation was established in 1986 as a means to help the families of British Columbia children needing organ transplants. The Foundation provides funding for non-medical expenses throughout the procedure, from initial assessments to postoperative check-ups. David has also been a long time friend of numerous other charitable organizations including the T.J. Martell Foundation, Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Foundation, Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation, St. Jude’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House Charities.
A recent effort near and dear to his heart was David’s composition with his wife Linda Thompson, of “Aren't They All Our Children”, the Primetime Emmy Award winning theme song for World Children’s Day at McDonald’s and Ronald McDonald House Charities. The anthem was showcased as the grand finale of a star studded primetime television entertainment special and live show featuring Foster, Celine Dion, Enrique Iglesias, Josh Groban, Peter Cetera, Nick Carter, Yolanda Adams, and Michael Bublé. The live show, television special, entertainment management, and DVD was produced by Executive Visions Inc. (EVI), a longtime friend and colleague of Foster. The song was composed as the creative centerpiece of EVI's global strategy for McDonald's World Children's Day social responsibility initiative, and is now being sung in various languages in 121 countries globally.
Foster recently signed Michael Bublé to his own 143 Records through Reprise and work began in the spring of 2001 on Michael’s self titled debut album, Michael Bublé, which came out February 14, 2003.
GOING BACK EVEN FURTHER…
A VISIONARY PRODUCER, GIFTED ARRANGER, AND PROLIFIC COMPOSER, DAVID FOSTER BRINGS A RARE COMBINATION OF TALENT, TASTE, AND DEDICATION TO HIS WORK. OVER THE PAST THREE DECADES, HE HAS GONE FROM ACHIEVEMENT TO ACHIEVEMENT, INCLUDING A PHENOMENAL STRING OF HIT RECORDS AND MULTI-PLATINUM AWARDS.
When David Foster began piano lessons at the age of five in his native Victoria, British Columbia, it quickly became apparent that his talents far surpassed those of other children his age. Living up to that early promise, he was enrolled as a student at the University of Washington at the age of 13, and three years later, when offered an opportunity to join the backing band for rock 'n roll legend Chuck Berry, Foster embarked on his professional performing career.
In 1971, Foster relocated to Los Angeles, and within two years, his group Skylark scored the top ten hit "Wildflower." Throughout the early 70s, he built a solid reputation as one of the best session keyboard players in the business performing with such superstars as John Lennon, George Harrison, Barbra Streisand, and Rod Stewart.
From there, Foster added songwriting and producing to his musical accomplishments. His early production and writing client list included Hall & Oats, Deniece Williams, Carole Bayer Sager, Boz Scaggs, and the Average White Band. In 1979, he received his first Grammy award for writing Earth, Wind & Fire's "After the Love has Gone."
The 1980s saw Foster branch out even further. He earned his second Grammy for the production of the cast album of the Tony award winning Broadway musical Dreamgirls. He ventured into feature films, cowriting the hit single "Love, Look What You've Done to Me" with Boz Scaggs for Urban Cowboy and penning the number one hit, Chicago's "Hard to Say I'm Sorry" for the film Summer Lovers.
David produced "Chicago XVI," the band's comeback album plus "Chicago XVII," which has sold more than 5,000,000 copies to date, as well as the platinum "Chicago XVIII." Foster and Peter Cetera also penned many of Chicago's biggest hits, including "You're the Inspiration," Stay the Night," and "Will You Still Love Me." In 1984, David earned his third and fourth Grammy awards for his efforts on behalf of the group: Producer of the Year and Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocals for "Hard Habit to Break."
Foster's writing and producing credits expanded to include such superstars as Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Lionel Richie (1983s decaplatinum album "Can't Slow Down"), Neil Diamond (one platinum album, two gold), Dionne Warwick, Kenny Rogers, the Manhattan Transfer, Olivia Newton John, James Ingram, the Pointer Sisters, Art Garfunkel, Roger Daltrey, Kenny Loggins, Al Jarreau, Richard Marx, and many, many others.
Foster's additional achievements include the hit single "Somewhere," which he produced for Barbra Streisand's "Broadway Album" and which earned him a fifth Grammy. He wrote and produced "Love Theme From 'St. Elmo's Fire'," as well as that soundtrack's number one single by John Parr, "Man in Motion." David also copenned Peter Cetera's number one single "The Glory of Love (from the film Karate Kid Part II), which received an Oscar nomination. Foster has written and/or produced songs for such films as Footloose, Ghostbusters, Pretty Woman, and Three Men and A Baby," as well as composing numerous film scores.
Over the years, Foster has been involved in a variety of projects for Atlantic Records, including a series of solo albums. His self titled debut solo outing was released in 1986 and featured a duet with Olivia Newton John. His second solo album, "The Symphony Sessions," featured the composer performing his compositions with the 83 piece Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Highlights included "Winter Games, specially commissioned for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics and "Water Fountain," a reworked rendition of Foster's Golden Globe nominated theme for the Michael J. Fox hit film The Secret of My Success.
In late 1990, Foster released his third solo set, "River of Love." A number of David's friends contributed their writing, singing, and/or performing talents to the sessions, including Brian Wilson, Natalie Cole, Bryan Adams, Bruce Hornsby, and Mike Reno. The album included the single "Grown Up Christmas List," sung by Ms. Cole.
Foster's fourth solo album, 1991's acclaimed "Rechordings," was a stunning collection featuring instrumental versions of Foster's best loved compositions.
In the fall of 1993, Interscope Records, an Atlanta Group company, released "David Foster: The Christmas Album." The holiday collection featured the voices of Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, Michael Crawford, Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack, Tom Jones, Johnny Mathis, Vanessa Williams, BeBe and CeCe Winans, Tammy Wynette, and Wynonna. The album also spawned an NBC television network special of the same name.
Asked what distinguishes his style as a songwriter and producer, Foster replies, "I gravitate toward tugging at heartstrings, and I treat every day in the studio as life or death."
David recalls once giving an album he had produced to his mentor, Quincy Jones. "I said, 'A couple of the songs aren't very good, and some vocals aren't right, but I like the rest.' Quincy replied, 'What does it say here? "Produced by David Foster." How can you put your name on this and then give excuses?' That was 15 years ago, and ever since, I've tried to do my best every day in the studio. That's my responsibility to the artist because that record is what they have to live with when I'm on to something else."
Foster maintains residence in Malibu, although he still regards his native Canada as home. From the Canadian music and televisions industries, he has received four Juno Awards (three for Best Instrumental Artist and one for Producer of the Year) and two Gemini Awards (for Best Variety Programme and for Best Music Composition).
In 1994, Davis was honored by the American Academy of Achievement--receiving the Golden Plate Award and being inducted into the Academy's Library of Living History.
David is married to Linda Thompson, who is his frequent musical collaborator and co-writer. They have six children between them--David with four daughters and Linda with two sons.
Foster's passion for music is only exceeded by his love for his family; in 1991, the Father's Day Council named him Father of the Year.
In spite of his busy schedule, Foster also devotes much of time to charity fund raising. Foster composed (with Bryan Adams), arranged, and produced the Canadian contribution to African famine relief "Tears are not Enough," performed by fellow Canadian artists, including Adams, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Gordon Lightfoot.
In 1986, he established the David Foster Foundation to assist families of children in need of organ transplants. He hosts the annual David Foster Celebrity Softball Game in Victoria, British Columbia, where such celebrities as Michael J. Fox, Gene Hackman, Michael Bolton, Dudley Moore, Kenny Loggins, Julio Iglesias, Bryan Adams, John Travolta, Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, Olivia Newton John, and Lee Majors have joined together to raise money for the Foundation. In recognition of his humanitarian efforts, Foster received the Order of Canada in 1988.
Among his many credits, David wrote the music to Linda's lyrics for "Voices that Care," the entertainment industry's salute to U.S. troops in the Persian Gulf, which to date has donated $660,000 to the Red Cross and USO of America.

THE TRUE KING OF POP
If a song is No.1, look for David Foster's name on the label.
By Charles P. Alexander
Time Magazine, August 29, 1994
YOU PROBABLY COULDN'T PICK David Foster out of a lineup, but if you could, you might want to kiss his ring or throttle him on the spot. Foster is a producer of inescapable songs, especially those ultra romantic ballads that seem to blare out of every boom box on the beach.
They are sung by various performers, from stars like Whitney Houston to the new group All-4-One, but the songs all bear the unmistakable Foster touch: the soaring vocals, the lush arrangements dripping with strings and keyboards, the crescendos built on crescendos. Whether the sound is timeless or just stuck in a time , warp is a matter of taste. But it sure does sell and earn him hefty royalties. While rap and grunge these days grab all the Critical attention these days, Old fashioned Foster has become the hottest- even if he's not the coolest- producer in pop music.
Over the last two years, Foster productions have held the No. 1 spot on Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 more than 25% of the time. Not since George Martin has one producer so dominated the top of the chart for so long, and Martin had a single, unbeatable act: The Beatles. Foster, in contrast, seems able to lead the pack with almost any singer he picks. His streak began in late 1992 and '93 with Houston's I Will Always Love You, which was No. 1 for a record 14 weeks and earned Foster a Grammy as Producer of the Year for the second time in three years. So far in 1994 he has scored with Celine Dion's The Power of Love, (four weeks at No. 1) and A11-4-One'scurrent smash, I Swear (11 weeks at the top spot).
But how many people read production credits? Despite being nominated for 34 Grammys and winning 12 during a 24-year career as a keyboard player, songwriter and producer, the Canadian born Foster, 44, is almost unknown out side the music business. Recording artists, though, know he's a studio wizard who jump-starts stalled acts and lifts successful ones to new heights. No wonder Michael Jackson has turned to Foster, who's producing songs for the King of Pop's next album. They've been working in New York, and that's why Michael and Lisa Marie ended up at Trump Tower.
Until recently, Foster mainly attended the royalty of "adult contemporary" pop, the kind of music that pleases baby boomers but makes their kids want to hurl. Foster, whose longish hair blue jeans and Nike Air sneakers don't hide the fact that he's unusually old for the business he's in, produced large parts of Natalie Cole's Unforgettable album (another Grammy winner) and Barbra Streisand's Back to Broadway.
Now Foster's success has taken on a new, youthful dimension. With songs like I Will Always Love You and I Swear he's hooking kids as well as their parents.
Foster Owes his current Hitmaking not to changing with the times but to realizing that one kind of song bridges generation gaps: The Ballad. While dance steps come and go, from twisting to voguing, kids and grownups alike still want slow numbersthat let them pull their partners close. "There's always been a ballad in the Top 10,' says Foster. "People love something with heart." For a while, teens favored the "power Ballads" put out by hard-rock bands with gravel voiced vocalists, but Foster has helped bring back the singing group. All-4-One, Color Me Badd (co-produced by Foster), Boyz II Men and Jodeci are winning fans with street corner harmonies reminiscent of the '50s and '60s.
But you won't find Foster on street corners or In clubs looking for new talent. He spends most of his time in studios or at home, in hopes that devotion to work will not wreck his third marriage as it did his first two. A garden-ringed house near the beach in Malibu, California, is home base for Foster and current wife Linda Thompson, and his four daughters and her two sons from earlier marriages. Thompson's is a fascinating story in its own right: a songwriter (she wrote Houston's I Have Nothing with Foster) and actress (15 years on the country-music TV show Hee Haw ), she once lived for five years with Elvis Presley and was later married to Olympian Bruce Jenner.
Foster's musical talent and the advent of synthesized sounds have made it possible for him to produce a record almost single-handedly. "I'm a control freak,' he admits. Sometimes he cuts demos in which he plays everything from "drums" to "cellos" on his computerized keyboards, hires a studio singer to lay down the vocal and then presents the polished product to a recording artist, then saying, "Here's what your song could sound like" In fact, he did that with "I will Always Love You " for Houston.
Behind Foster's perfectionism is a surprising strain of insecurity. He knows that in his industry complacency can quickly lead to a fall from the charts. "I always work under the assumption that my latest hit is my last." So I Swear is my last hit". Not many people in the music business would bet on it.
