Four time Grammy winning producer Steve Buckingham began his career playing Beach Music in Virginia and the Carolinas while in high school and college. He eventually became a studio guitarist playing sessions in Atlanta, Muscle Shoals, Los Angeles, New York and Toronto. This led to Buckingham becoming a producer and in 1978 his production of “I Love The Nightlife” was a world-wide hit for Alicia Bridges. Following a move to Nashville Buckingham served as Vice President of A&R at Columbia Records for ten years before leaving to become Senior Vice President of Vanguard Records for another ten years. But it is Buckingham’s successful stint as a producer that is his claim to fame working with artists such as Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Dionne Warwick, Tammy Wynette, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Bettye LaVette and many others. He has placed singles in the Top 10 of eleven different charts: Pop, Country, R & B, Jazz, Adult Contemporary, Americana, Bluegrass, Christian, Hispanic, Triple A and Dance. All Music Guide lists almost 400 albums to his credit.
