Steve has been a Touring Songwriter since 1966 - when the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band had a HIT w/ my co-write "Buy For Me The Rain". Steve has shared the stage w/ some Great Performers (Phill Ochs, Jackson Browne, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Bonnis Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Ramblin Jack, Hoyt Axton, (and many others) Playing in the US - Europe and most recently Japan. I have had worldwide radio play since the mid sixties w/ Three CDs and the LP on Elektra (reissued on CD by Collectors Choice).
"…I've known Steve Noonan pretty much all my life - Probably one of the most influential People - musically - in my life. What I learned about writing and singing - I first learned from him." ....Jackson Browne
After 52 years of touring with nitty gritty dirt band, founding member Jimmie Fadden is not slowing down. On the contrary, he's getting involved more outside of the band. "Let's just say I'm covering some old tracks just for the memories." Jimmie's friendship with Steve Noonan goes back to 1966 when NGDB cut the Noonan-Copelan penned "buy for me the rain" Jackson Browne was hanging out with the dirt band, then and folk music was king!
Jimmie's harmonica playing can be heard on albums by Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, John Denver and Dan Fogleberg to name a few. His song writing is woven into the tracks of NGDB's musical history, and his infectious beat has kept the band on track for years.
Forest Rodgers is a published Author, instructor, session player, Nashville touring musician (Member Vassar Clements Band 1982). Longtime guitarist/banjo (14yrs) player at The Cheyenne Saloon & Opera House Orlando, home of TNN's Church St. Station Tv Series.
