About RD Girard
I've been playing music in Illinois and Southern California for over 20 years...and been many original bands. Boston Sunshine, Wench, Cold Smoke, Eighteen Wheeler, Rip Tide, The Type, Itchy Brother, Scratchy Sister, and The Outside Chance...to name a few. During the same time I was a manager at a private investment banking firm doing M&A (murders and accusations) Currently, a solo artist singer/songwriter in Southern California and wherever ... . Semi recently, wrote a few songs with Linnea Ross, a "very special" singer/songwriter. (myspace.com/linneaross) Her background is more of a "ambient jazz" thing ... mine is "rock n country". We've written a few songs and seems the combo in styles makes good music. For the "Initial" CD, Mike Hatcher did the producing. These days Ian Fleming produces. When you hear the sweet steel guitar, that's my friend, Jimmy Eaton. I usually have Frank Cotinola or Mac Hine play drums and Tony Robin on bass, but I am also blessed with being associated with so many great musicians. It's amazing how many cool musicians there are ... I am also currently a singer in "Joy To The World", a premier Three Dog Night tribute band.
