David Schuler (born David James Schuler, August 1, 1982) is an American, two-time Grammy Award nominated, multi-platinum worldwide selling record producer/songwriter from Rochester, NY. Currently residing between New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA, Schuler has earned notable success as a record producer, songwriter, mixing engineer and remixer throughout the music business. He has produced records and written songs with artists such as P!nk, John Legend, Daughtry, Backstreet Boys, The Saturdays, Scott Stapp, Ricki-Lee Coulter, Esmee Denters, Lauren Bennett, Teddy Geiger, Shy Carter, Aimee Proal, and others.[1][2][3][4][5]

The Sunstreak[edit]

In February 2006, Schuler joined pop/rock band The Sunstreak. The band then went on to make history by selling nearly 25,000 copies of its independent self-titled debut on the Vans Warped Tour that year, gaining placement on multiple Billboard charts throughout the summer. This buzz caught the attention of Billy Mann, who then signed the group to management under his company, Stealth Entertainment. The band would soon tour the east coast with Daughtry, and support numerous groups like We The Kings, Gym Class Heroes, Paramore, Kevin Rudolph and Anberlin and appear at festivals such as The Bamboozle.

In the spring of 2009, the band self released their 2nd full length album (also produced/recorded/mixed by Schuler) titled "Once upon a lie". Originally containing 19 songs, the LP was then later released in a condensed, 11 song version by Merovingian Music/EMI Records. This marked the band's debut on a major label. The music video for the leading single "Until I met you" found its way to Number 6 on the MTV countdown and press included articles in publications such as Seventeen, Cosmo Girl, J-14 and other teen magazines/online outlets.

The band has not made any announcements regarding new material or tour plans since 2010.[6][7][8][9][10][11]

BOYBLUE/Pretty in Pink[edit]

Schuler sometimes produces records under the alias "boyblue". In late 2011, he started a new project called "Pretty in Pink". A free album was released online in the fall of 2012 on Pretty in Pink's official Facebook page, followed by 2 live performances in his hometown of Rochester and at the legendary "Viper Room" in Los Angeles. No further plans have been announced since, however there are rumors at various blogs of highly anticipated new music and tour dates soon to be announced for 2013. "There aren't many things that can pull me away from making records for other artists...other than making records for myself." Schuler said in an interview with LISTSINUP. "I can't pretend like I dont do this for me, cause I do. Even when the music is being released by another artist that I'm collaborating with, I don't commit to that partnership unless it turns me on, musically. So if the day comes when I start doing this to make someone else happy, I'll find something new to do."

Grammy nominations[edit]

In 2012, Pink's album The Truth about Love was nominated for a Grammy in the category of "Best pop album". Schuler was one of a short list of producers on the album, earning a nomination for his work.[12]

In 2013, John Legend's album "Love in the Future" was nominated for R&B Album of the year. Schuler was nominated as he co-wrote the song "For the First Time" with John Legend and Billy Mann, a track that was released with iTunes versions of the album [13]
