297 – Mike Zimmerman: Drumming for Kenny Rogers, Taking Leaps of Faith, Producing from Home
Mike Zimmerman is a drummer and producer in Nashville Tennessee. Mike started playing drums at age 14 after playing the guitar for a year. Drums appealed more to Mike probably due to his mother being a rhythm player in the traditional Serbo-Croatian folk scene in the Cleveland area. This atmosphere rubbed off on Mike to seek out the uncommon, yet traditional sounds in the music around him.After years of playing in the Cleveland music scene, Mike decided to uproot his small family and move to Nashville to give it a real go. After getting to know the landscape, Mike landed his first artist gig with Doug Stone. He then had the great opportunity to play with other artists such as Earl Thomas Conley, Tracy Byrd and Jamie O’Neal. Years of touring, sessions and odd-jobs finally led to a gig with legendary singer Kenny Rogers. This also led to opportunities to play with other artists such as Linda Davis, Billy Dean and even Lionel Richie! Mike has had the honor and pleasure of playing all over the world.In this episode, Mike talks about:* Growing up in a musical family in Cleveland, OH* Making the move to Nashville, TN* Getting the Kenny Rogers gig* Gigs that prepared him for high profile artist gigs* Traveling the world with Kenny* Producing tracks from homeThis episode is sponsored by Shure Microphones.
