Phillip Wolfe, manager of Shadow Lane Studios, has performed as a guitarist and keyboardist with Johnny Paycheck, Steven Stills, Trick Pony, Jeff Cook of "ALABAMA," and many others. He has recorded with Gregg Allman, Firehouse, Jeff Cook, and other nationally known artists. He played piano and organ on Brett Michael's hit, "All I Needed Was You."
In 1995, Wolfe's song "Heartbreak Express" was featured on the "ALABAMA" platinum release In Pictures.
Phillip Wolfe's production and engineering experience includes over five years as a manager and producer for Telstar Studios in Sarasota, Florida, where he honed his craft working alongside Allman Brothers Production Manager and Grammy-nominated producer/engineer Bud Snyder. After moving to Nashville, Wolfe worked for a year at Kalimba Studios, where he engineered a CD for Roy "Future Man" Wooten.
Shadow Lane Studios, founded in 2002, fulfills Wolfe's lifetime dream of managing his own studio.
Wolfe recently collaborated with prominent L.A. producer/writer Peter Amato and multi-platinum songwriter Duncan Pain on producing the debut CD of Kimberly Jean, voted "Best Vocalist of the Month" by Singer Universe magazine. Pain had previously recorded at Shadow Lane Studios, and was impressed by Wolfe's work. When Amato and Pain were unable to find satisfactory players in the L.A. area, they turned to Wolfe to produce a number of the songs in Nashville using local players. Wolfe played guitar and keyboards on the CD.
