D.A. Wallach: Bringing An Artist’s Touch to Technology

It’s extremely rare to find people who seem to have an amazing balance of everything. D.A. Wallach is one of these people.

For one, he’s an accomplished scholar who attended Harvard University and graduated with honors in African-American studies. Secondly, he’s a successful musician and producer who caught the attention of Kanye West, Jermaine Dupri, and Pharrell Williams, all who waged a bidding war in the past to sign his band Chester French. Thirdly, he was handpicked by billionaire Sean Parker and Spotify founder Daniel Ek to be the official artist-in-residence for Spotify. To top it all off, he’s made a name for himself in the startup world as an investor and adviser for a wide array of companies.
