Dave Schulz: Topping Off A Resume Filled With Superstars Like Fuel, Berlin, The Rembrandts & General Public



LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts/ Luck Media & Marketing) - It's all about connections.
Dave Schulz's notion to call his debut album-and long awaited foray into the indie pop/rock world-Connect grew out of his realization that nothing happens in the music industry without them.

As a first call session and touring keyboardist and vocalist over the past 10 years, the renowned singer, songwriter and keyboardist (www.daveschulzmusic.com) has learned that success boils down to building those personal relationships-one studio musician to another or bandmate to bandmate

In the late 90s, when he was one of Buffalo's most popular young keyboardists, Schulz got a call from his old friend, bassist Robby Takac from his hometown heroes the Goo Goo Dolls, who asked him to join them on their famed 'Dizzy Up The Girl' tour.

Suddenly, thanks to a connection made long before, Schulz went from playing in front of a few hundred patrons at a local Buffalo bar to jamming at Woodstock for 60,000 and touring the world for two and a half years during the band's heyday.

In 1999, when the Goos were opening for The Rolling Stones, Schulz became friends with their backup singer and backing musician Bernard Fowler. A few years later, when the singer, songwriter and keyboardist moved out to L.A. to launch the next phase of his career, he again ran into Fowler, who helped him make headway on the local studio scene and became a major inspiration.

Now, ten years after first meeting Fowler, Schulz is excited to include the singer as one of the legendary musicians helping him come into his own as an artist and ensure that Connect lives up to its crafty moniker.

The instantly infectious 10 track collection also features extremely well connected players Schulz has admired for years, including Daniel Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan), bassists Tony Levin (King Crimson, Seal) and Mike Porcaro (Toto). Three tracks were produced by another longtime Schulz associate Matt Gruber, whose credits include everyone from Carrie Underwood and LeAnn Rimes to Queensryche.

Schulz will be making his Los Angeles debut, performing the material from Connect with a new band on June 3 at The Mint.
