More about David Nagler:
David Nagler is the co-founder of NY metropolitan area pop group Nova Social, which has been active in New York’s pop underground for over ten years. The group’s new full-length, For Any Inconvenience, along with their 2009 self-titled EP, mates their ambitious pop songwriting with electronic and dance music influences. For Any Inconvenience will be released in late-2011.

David plays guitar and piano in John Wesley Harding & The English UK, where his involvement in the “Cabinet of Wonders” variety shows have led to him sharing the stage with Rosanne Cash, Andrew Bird, A.C. Newman (of The New Pornographers), Andrew VanWyngarden (of MGMT) and more.

He served as musical director and co-producer on Chris Mills’ acclaimed orchestral pop release The Wall to Wall Sessions (Ernest Jenning Record Co.), which led to his inclusion in The L Magazine’s “Ultimate Brooklyn Supergroup,” and he provided choral arrangements for the Mekons’ Jon Langford’s Skull Orchard Revisited (Verse Chorus Press/Bloodshot Records), with members of the Burlington Welsh Male Chorus.

Beauty Love Truth is produced and directed by Shannon Manning and Louie Pearlman of Sparkle Television. Contact SHANNON a*t SPARKLETELEVISION d*o*t c*o*m
