David Lucas Celebrated for Contributions to Musical Composition and Production

David Lucas was the first to make the old-fashioned "jingle" sound more like a hit record

    BOCA RATON, FL, March 8, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- David Lucas has been recognized by Cambridge Who's Who for demonstrating dedication, leadership and excellence in musical composition and production.

David Lucas is a different brand of professional—he is motivated and inspired by a calling to create music. A vocalist since the young age of four, Lucas recalls traveling with his parents as a child to sing gigs around his native Buffalo. Nearly 50 years later, he has become one of the world's most notable musical composers and producers for advertising with famous jingles like: GE We Bring Good Things To Life, AT&T Reach Out and Touch Someone, Catch That Pepsi Spirit, Pall Mall, Chips Ahoy, Mt. Airy Lodge, Burger King, Coca Cola, and thousands more. Lucas has worked extensively with a staggering number of high-profile recording artists and produced tracks for the likes of Tim Rose, David Steinberg, the Alessi Brothers, Ray Charles, Carly Simon, Michael Bolton and Paul McCartney.

He is credited with discovering Blue Oyster Cult, and produced their first album as well as the famous song "Don't Fear the Reaper." David sang back ups and played the now famous cowbell. (SNL skit).

His most recent work has been with the Miracle Project - a cause devoted to Autism awareness. Lucas has helped produce a song written by his son Jason Lucas called "Butterfly," which features Chaka Khan in a duet with the eight year old autistic talent Gina Incandela.

Additionally, Lucas has composed scores for films and musicals including "The Magic Garden of Stanley Sweetheart," "The Audition," "Basic Black" and "The Golden Screw." Lucas is also the mastermind behind the construction of the famous Warehouse Recording Studio in New York, which has become a "hub" for New York's musical talent. In 1998, he sold the Warehouse which is now owned and operated by Wyclef Jean.

A decorated award-winner for his contributions to the music industry, Lucas has won Clio Awards, multiple ADDY Awards, and both gold and platinum records for his recordings. He is professionally involved with the Screen Actors Guild, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists and the American Federation of Musicians.

Now living in the Miami area, Lucas is currently working on a musical. He spends a great deal of time in Jamaica where he serves as co-leader of Save Winnifred Beach, a project that discourages foreign developers from destroying the fragile landscape and is involved with a prestigious recording studio in Pt. Antonio.

He is also in the process of introducing a Jamaican inspired product he invented called "Bob's No Problem" Bloody Mary Maker. A unique blend of spices that make an instant "scratch" Bloody Mary where you get to use your favorite tomato juice, V8 etc. Bob's is used by many famous restaurants and sold in top gourmet stores such as Dean & DeLuca, Balducci's, Zabars and many others across America and the Islands.
