David Sardy

David Sardy (more commonly known as D. Sardy) is a Brooklyn born and raised songwriter, rock and roll musician, record producer and composer. Born in 1967 to a family which includes three professors and an ex-member of Manchester band The Fall, Dave's first musical education consisted of experiments with a Fender Twin Reverb and cassette player, resulting in his first recordings as The Enjotones, with collaborator Vincent Aquilone.

He taught himself engineering with stints in a community recording studio (Harold Dessau Studios) and later at his own studio in Williamsburg. Many Williamsburg indie bands passed through this studio, most notably, The Dandy Warhols, Helmet and Interpol

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Sardy was active as a singer, songwriter and guitarist (most notably with his group Barkmarket), but since the mid-1990s, he has been more active as a producer, writer and/or mixer. He has worked with an eclectic mix of rock, punk, alternative, electronic and industrial rock but mainly song driven performers; Critics have called him a "Hardcore super-producer."

1990 saw some of Sardy's earliest recording credits: as a guitarist on Marc Ribot's "Rootless Cosmopolitans" (his name was misspelled "Sardi") and on Barkmarket's "Vegas Throat" the record that brought the group wider acclaim after a string of independent releases starting from 1987 with Barkmarket's "1-800 GOD-HOUSE and "The Easy Listening Record". He also played guitar on Frank Black's 1993 solo debut. During the 1990s, he began to collaborate with Rick Rubin initially as an engineer for Slayer; and later as a producer for Rick Rubin's American label.

Barkmarket was active from about 1987 to 1996 and toured widely. In addition to being the group's singer, songwriter and guitarist, Sardy also produced, recorded and mixed all their albums. This probably helped his nascent career as a producer: though often loud and aggressive, Barkmarket's albums are full of interesting sounds, textures and recording techniques.

In the late 1990s, Sardy's side-career as a producer started to dominate, and Barkmarket ceased recording. He threw the audio experiments and textures of Barkmarket into mostly guitar-based rock music, resulting in some breakthrough recordings. In 2006, his work with Jet saw them win 6 ARIA awards. Wolfmother, whose debut album Sardy produced, won a Grammy for best hard rock performance; and OK GO, a project Sardy remixed in his home studio, won a Grammy for best video.

Sardy has also worked on film scores, contributing to Flushed Away; Spiderman and Spiderman 2. Sardy recently scored the Columbia pictures movie "21" he continues to write, record and produce from his studio in Los Angeles.
