Rick: Music has been my passion my whole adult life. When I was probably a little “too wet behind the ears,” I was signed to several record labels (Vault, Fantasy, United Artists). In those days I got to record with some amazing players, including the likes of Kenny Buttrey, Johnny Gimble, and David Briggs in Nashville, and Jim Keltner, Joe Osborne, and Waddy Wachtel in LA. I moved to Texas and played all over, getting to know and share Festival and Club stages with some great singer/ songwriters, including Lucinda Williams, Townes Van Zandt , Tom Russell, and even Willy Nelson.

For family reasons, I moved back to LA, and through producer Brian Ahern and engineer Bradley Hartman, I got to know and record with some premier country/rock players including Albert Lee, "Sneaky” Pete Kleinow, & Greg Leisz, … With help from the above and core rhythm section pros David Chamberlain (bass) and Rich Diamond (drums), I’ve been putting out independent CDs ever since.

I am pleased to say that my “True Love” Jos Callard and I have moved back to Texas and are currently happily writing, recording, performing, and living just outside of Austin.
