About the Players [ About the Song | About the Players | Order the Single ]

Bill Cuomo - Producer, keyboards & string arrangements
Bill has done it all - producer, musician, arranger and now the owner of his own studio and record company. Bill's distinctive keyboards can be heard on Bette Davis Eyes by Kim Carnes and Can't Fight This Feeling by REO Speedwagon. His credits also include co-writing Oh, Sherrie for Steve Perry and producing for Barbra Streisand. He also arranged the title track for the James Bond film Never Say Never Again starring Sean Connery. Bill gave up the hectic life of L.A. a few years back for the serene countryside of Williamson County, just outside Nashville. He built a state-of-the-art recording studio, Manzanita Recording, where he continues to churn out great music. His work with Lamelle Harris there garnered two Grammy nominations and a Dove award. He's the co-owner of Sonic Sorbet Records.

Beeb Birtles - Associate producer, background vocals & acoustic guitar
Beeb is one of the founding members of Little River Band, the Australian sensation of the '70s and '80s which went on to conquer the world. One listen to his latest CD, Driven By Dreams on Sonic Sorbet Records, and it's quite apparent that Beeb was instrumental in the unique sound of LRB. The best example is LRB's hit song Happy Anniversary which Beeb co-wrote. He can be heard on all of their hits like Help Is On Its Way, Reminiscing, Lady, Lonesome Loser, Cool Change, Man On Your Mind, Take It Easy On Me and The Other Guy. In the early '90s, Beeb decided it was time for a cool change and left his native Australia, settling in Nashville. He's now co-owner of Sonic Sorbet Records where he records and produces other acts.

Ron Krasinski - Drums
Another L.A. transplant, Ron's drums have been the backbone of some of pop's biggest hits. He's played and/or recorded with everyone from Olivia Newton-John, Seals & Crofts, Barry Manilow, Melissa Manchester and Sheena Easton. He's played on numerous sitcom themes, everything from Sigmund the Sea Monster to Murphy Brown. He made his acting debut recently in the Dolly Parton made-for-TV movie The Blue Valley Songbird. He's also written jingles for companies like Lee 501 Jeans and Pringles.
