Big News About David!
Fans of David has learned from a very reliable source that David is going to be songwriting this week with Matthew Gerrard, who co-wrote “Breakaway” for Kelly Clarkson, and Robbie Nevil, who has worked with numerous young artists.
According to Songwriter Universe magazine, Matthew Gerrard has been “one of the most in-demand, pop writer/producers for the past decade. He co-wrote the Kelly Clarkson smash “Breakaway,” and has also had hits with Hilary Duff (“I Can’t Wait” and “Why Not”), Jesse McCartney (“She’s No You”), Eden’s Crush (“Get Over Yourself”) and Nick Carter (“Help Me”).” Gerrard has also co-wrote and produced three songs on the High School Musical soundtrack and the Hannah Montana album and has collaborated with diverse artists such as Avril Lavigne and the Plain White T’s. Robbie Nevil is a co-writer of Jordin Sparks’s current hit “One Step At A Time” and has also collaborated on the HSM soundtrack as well as Hannah Montana. You may remember his hit “C’est La Vie” from 1987 (he actually had a string of Billboard Hot 100 hits from his debut album).
How do we feel about this? Are you conflicted? On the one hand, perhaps you do not envision David’s career going down the path of the Disney superstars: you had in mind the type of music produced by John Mayer, Natasha Bedingfield, and Sara Bareilles. On the other hand, Gerrard and Nevil have contributed heavily to multi-platinum albums: they know how to write music that sells. The fact that our source specifically mentioned “Breakaway” and “One Step At A Time” reassures me that the writers and producers David will be working with know the direction he wishes to take his music, and the material they write with him will be worthy of his talents. Trust the Archuleta.
*A special thanks to Becky for finding background information about Gerrard and Nevil!
More news: David will be meeting with some of the biggest management companies in the entertainment business this week to identify just the right people to co-manage his career along with Jeff Archuleta. David will be in good hands!
