David Hentschel

David Hentschel is an English recording engineer, writer and music producer who engineered on George Harrison's All Things Must Pass and Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, as well as with artists including Genesis, Elton John, Ringo Starr, Queen, Marti Webb, Andy Summers, Mike Oldfield, Peter Hammill and Ronnie Caryl.

Hentschel's career began at Trident Studios in London where he was initially an assistant before rising to become one of the in-house producers. In addition to engineering and production credits, Hentschel also played early synthesizers with a diverse range of bands including Nazareth, Pilot and Byzantium. He played synthesizer on several high profile recordings, including Elton John's "Rocket Man" and "Funeral for a Friend" from the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album. "Funeral for a Friend" featured an early analogue synthesizer, the ARP 2500, to create tonal feeling and effect.

After leaving Trident in 1974, he produced his own album Startling Music for Ringo Starr's short lived record label, Ring O'Records, consisting of a song-by-song cover of Ringo's first album and featuring performances by Phil Collins, David Cole, Ronnie Caryl, John Gilbert and Starr. He then began a successful collaboration with the band Genesis which resulted in five albums beginning with A Trick of the Tail in 1976.

In 1982, Hentschel collaborated with lyricist Don Black on a song cycle album for Marti Webb to follow her success with Tell Me on a Sunday. I'm Not That Kind of Girl was released in 1983 and despite including the talent of Phil Collins on drums and Kiki Dee on backing vocals, it failed to chart and was Webb's last album for Polydor.

Hentschel also wrote the theme music for the films Educating Rita and Operation Daybreak.

Relocating to Los Angeles in 1985, he established one of the first dedicated MIDI studios and worked with Ensoniq on developing instruments and custom sounds.

Hentschel has recently worked as an engineer, musician and arranger for a number of Contemporary Christian music artists including Out of Eden, Jennifer Knapp, Point of Grace and P.O.D.
