Rick started singing for anyone who would listen at the age of five. He got his first guitar at age six and got serious about playing it when he started taking guitar lessons at nine years old.
Rick played in several bands throughout his school years and took to the road performing as a singer-songwriter shortly after his first year of college opting for life experience over a college degree.
Rick's first album was called Beaten, Robbed and Raped In L.A. Upon release of the album, Rick took to the road again, this time with a band touring as Rick Snow and the Whiteliner Band.
After coming off the road, Rick settled back down in California and launched one of the early independent record labels in Southern California called Little Buddy Records. Along with the record company he started a music publishing company called Zounds Music. After Rick had produced just a few albums for some west coast bands, he knew he had finally found his niche in production and as a recording engineer.
Rick loves all kinds of music, but to expand his experience even further, he knew that Nashville, Tennessee would eventually be on his itinerary. Rick moved to Nashville in the early nineties and after taking a year to get to know the town, Rick put together a small studio in downtown Nashville just off Music Row. It quickly became a busy demo studio which allowed Rick to meet a lot of the talented studio musicians and songwriters in town.
The studio really wasn't big enough to accommodate bands and large groups who wanted to cut albums, so a year later Snow moved a little north of town to Hendersonville, Tennessee. He built the Zounds Recording Studio which he named after the ASCAP publishing company he started in California. Rick also started a new record label called ZoundSound Records.
Rick has designed and built several recording and video studios around the country. He has written and recorded over two hundred original songs, engineered on hundreds of demos and produced more than forty CD projects for clients in the ZoundSound Studios.
In 2006, Rick incorporated his companies under the name ZoundSound Entertainment, Inc. With the growth of the internet and media technology he has expanded the company and it's interests in several different directions in the entertainment industry.
Rick still writes, records and performs his own music while he continues to produce projects for the company labels.
Currently, Rick is in Las Vegas, Nevada developing a show for the Uncle America Network. On occasion you can catch Rick performing somewhere in Sin City or parts unknown.
If you are on the mailing list, you will be notified where you can see him entertaining with his five piece rock-a-billy band or his larger eight piece country/blues band. He'll be singing his originals mixed in with a repertoire of very old cover tunes from years gone by. Whatever he's performing though, the band will be as hot as usual and Rick's voice is as strong and memorable as ever.
