DAVE TOZER

Biography

Dave Tozer is a Grammy Award-winning music producer, songwriter, and musician, whose discography spans more than a decade of success. Based in New York City, Tozer got his start in the bustling late-1990s Philadelphia scene, honing his guitar, bass, and keyboard skills while producing songs at studios like the legendary Sigma Sound. It was there that he was introduced to a then unknown John Legend, launching a songwriting and production career that would bear fruit not just for them, but for millions of music fans worldwide. Tozer sets himself apart by constantly searching for the newest sounds and studio techniques while never sacrificing the mindset and approach of a classic producer.

Tozer has worked with a wide range of artists, including John Legend, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, John Mayer, Kimbra, Natasha Bedingfield, Musiq Soulchild, Emile Sande, and Mayer Hawthorne.  Back with his old friend John Legend, Dave is enjoying worldwide chart success with the album Love In the Future, including a US Hot 100 number one single “All Of Me,” which Dave produced and mixed.
