    label: Ozit

    David Bacha is a singer/songwriter and guitarist now to be found around the gigs in the famous music street of Yonge Street, Toronto, Canada. Having resided in Toronto for some time now, David was born in Cleveland, Ohio, USA (widely regarded as the spiritual birthplace of rock'n'roll, as famed disc jockey Alan Freed came to fame while broadcasting for a Cleveland radio station). David Bacha grew up "across the block" from Joe Walsh who always had a bigger and better amplifier than Bacha, who, as a young man, jammed with the likes of Walsh, Eric Carmen (later of The Raspberries) and Bob Seger, whose band he at one point joined. Among the supporting musicians on this album are Wally Cameron, formerly of noted Canadian group Deja vu, for whom Bacha wrote two hit songs, and guitarist Gino Scarpelli of Canadian rockers Goddo. Past members of the David Bacha Band include drummer Skip Prokop (of the respected Canadian group, Lighthouse, and also a one-time member of Janis Joplin's band), and blind guitar prodigy Jeff Healey, who worked in Bacha's band before achieving stardom. Often known as 'Mr. Jack Daniels' due to the numerous lyrical references in his songs to this popular hooch, Bacha has received many complimentary reviews both in the Canadian press: "A prophet without honour in two countries, a Cleveland-born Toronto rocker, his writing is infused with a poet's ear for imagery and a novelist's ability to spin a tale" (Toronto Rock magazine)."
