David Ricketts (born February 15, 1954 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American musician and record producer.

Ricketts scored hits in the mid 1980s with David Baerwald in their group David & David, notably the track "Welcome to the Boomtown" from their only album Boomtown.

His failed relationship with singer Toni Childs formed the basis for her critically acclaimed debut album, Union, which Ricketts co-wrote and produced.

He collaborated with Sheryl Crow on her debut Tuesday Night Music Club and is credited on the songs "Leaving Las Vegas" and "Strong Enough." He also produced and performed on Meredith Brooks' 1997 album, Blurring The Edges, which contained her hit "Bitch".
