David Garfield · Claudia feat. Michael Lington

David Garfield has been driven by the same mission statement since moving from his hometown of St. Louis to Los Angeles as a teenager in the early 70s: “I make music.”

Fully living up to this vision and in more expansive ways over the past few decades, the multi-talented keyboardist, composer, arranger and recording artist has established himself an eclectic force of musical nature. At any given point during his career—and often at the same time—he has been musical director for George Benson, producer, arranger and co-songwriter with Smokey Robinson, keyboardist for Natalie Cole, David Sanborn, Boz Scaggs, and many others, as well as fronting his own bands and releasing many popular smooth jazz recordings on his label Creatchy Records. His version of “Let’s Stay Together” featuring Michael McDonald was a top 10 hit worldwide.

“Claudia” is a gorgeous and passionate new original power ballad that features his longtime collaborator, Michael Lington on sax.
