In 1966, I came to Nashville and worked with Roy Drusky doing road dates and playing on the Grand Ole Opry.
In the fall of 1967, I went into the armed services, stationed at Brunswick, Maine in Naval Air Squadron VP-11.
During the latter part of 1968, after my discharge from active duty, I went to work with David Houston. We were playing mainly concerts, but also some TV Shows as well.
In 1970, I went to work with Tompall and The Glaser Brothers. We did road dates and played on the Grand Ole Opry. I also worked in their publishing company. It was at this point that I got involved in studio work in Nashville, at The Glaser Studio, doing demos for their publishing company and recordings for their own MGM Record releases. It wasn't long until I began working for other producers around Nashville on their recording projects. During this period, 1970-1973, I played on an album for Jimmy Buffett that got me started doing studio work for artists in the pop field, as well as in the country field.
In 1974, when The Glaser Brothers act broke up, I went to work for Jim Glaser playing in his band. I also continued to do studio work when we weren't on the road.
During the period of 1975-1985, I did recording work with artists such as:
England Dan and John Ford Coley
The Lewis Family
Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul, & Mary)
Kenny Rogers and The First Edition
In 1982, as Lynn Anderson wanted to do less concert dates per year, I stayed in Nashville continuing to play on recording sessions. I also became chief engineer at Fireside Recording Studio, a well respected recording facility over the years.
In March of 1985, I became studio manager at Fireside Studio after the previous owners sold the studio to Music Artist Corporation, a Florida based company. I worked in this position for the next three years as well as continuing to work on recording sessions for various artists.
Since 1985, I have been proud to play on record releases by artists such as:
