Biography

Although David Foster's career in music began on a Canadian island, it would send him all over the world physically, as well all over the musical map, style-wise. His work in pop music spanned virtually every part of the musical spectrum - from performance to production to film scoring. While several projects would have to be considered career highlights for other musicians, Foster's greatest achievement was not any one song, soundtrack or performance - it was the incredible breadth and depth of his success.
