Musical history is anything not on the charts this morning. That includes most of my career. But because people always ask who I’ve recorded, here are a few highlights from my resume:
I have been a music producer, engineer and musician for over 30 years. I’ve been fortunate enough to record multi-platinum, Grammy and Emmy winning artists in Nashville and L.A.
The musical progression goes something like this:
daydreamer >acoustic guitar >singer >songwriter >steel guitar >bass >piano >organ >drums >violin > mandolin > ukelele > harmonica >electric guitar >synth >programmer >engineer >producer >studio owner >daydreamer.
Along the way I’ve managed to record great people and make some wonderful friends.
