London England-born David Bendeth has been around music and musicians most of his life as a Guitarist, songwriter, producer and A&R executive. Self-taught on guitar before studying at the famed Berklee School of Music in Boston, Bendeth traveled back and forth between London and Toronto in his formative years before going on the road with the likes of Drummers Billy Cobham and Lenny White.

After working as a teenager at a record store and playing in the house band at London's famed Speakeasy, Bendeth hit the top of the U.K. Charts as a blue-eyed soul crooner with the single "Feel the Real" in 1980. He went on to release three albums, 1980's Adrenalin (Epic Canada/EMI U.K.), 1982's Just Dessert (Ensign/RCA) and 1983's The Bendeth Band (Ensign/RCA) before joining CBS/Sony Canada as Staff producer.
