DAVID BRADSTREET is best known for his song ”Renaissance” (“Let’s Dance That Old Dance Once More”) - a hit for Canadian icon, Valdy. He has been recognized for his work as a singer/songwriter, composer and producer, twenty albums bearing his name; a high profile Juno Award early in his career; three subsequent Juno nominations and music credits including a Gemini nomination; film and television soundtracks and scoring; talent discovery and record production for numerous artists from Jane Siberry to Colleen Peterson. He has toured extensively and is a veteran of many coffeehouses, concert halls and folk festivals.

David Bradstreet''s newest acoustic release, "08.20.10", was recorded live-off-the-floor (vocal, guitar and bass) in four days, August 17 - 20, 2010 at Dave''s Cave in Toronto, Canada with Carl Keesee. As well as his own original compositions, this release includes two songs: “Nowhere Anywhere”, that he co-wrote with Robert Priest; and “Sea Fever”, a poem written by John Masefield for which David wrote the music.

Born in London, England, David came to Canada as a child with his parents; after college where he studied architecture, he worked the college circuit in the U.S. visiting most states as a solo performer and achieving rising star status in Canada on the folk club trail in the early ''70s. This period was marked by: early sessions in Bob and Danny Lanois'' mother''s basement; two pivotal years in New York City with Peter Yarrow and Phil Ramone including a duo with Mimi Farina; teaming up with Lazarus and Albert Grossman in Woodstock NY and touring with Todd Rundgren; having one of his songs, "Renaissance", become a folk standard - followed by the Juno for Best New Male Vocalist 1977. The late ''70s phase of David''s career, which included two high profile albums on A&M, “David Bradstreet” and “Dreaming in Colour”, was one of major tours and high profile concert and broadcast appearances. Bradstreet opted to go the independent route and recorded another solo album, “Black & White” in 1981. As a record producer, he released the first album by a then unknown Jane Siberry on his own Street Records label in 1981, and another by his former Lazarus partner Billie Hughes the same year. Hughes, along with Carl Keesee from that band formed life-long friendships with David, leading to the co-production of the excellent tribute album to Canadian singer/songwriters, “Horton Bates & Best”. His “Renaissance” CD was released in 1998 and his first A&M album, the eponymous "David Bradstreet", was re-released under the new Universal Music banner, The Heritage Series in 2002. Followed by “Lifelines” in 2006 with Jason Fowler and David Woodhead. He was co-producer of the CD compilation, “Tears of a Thousand Years”, a benefit project for 911. He also co-produced, with Nancy Simmonds, a new CD of Colleen Peterson songs, "Postcards from California" - as well as Nancy''s CD "Debut" released on Joe Tucker Records. He recently started a new record company, TheraMusic, for his internationally successful music therapy genre. "TheraCalm" is the newest release in a line that includes numerous health related CDs. David recently produced Jason Fowler’s “Lumens of Light”, released in October 2010.

David is currently touring in support of "08.20.10" and working as writer and producer with numerous artists.
He will be traveling to Antarctica this February and March as artist-in-residence aboard the MS Expedition.
