The founder & General Manager of Inlight Records

On this episode, we talk with Rick Lloyd, who is the founder & General Manager of Inlight Records, a record company based on developing info-mercials to sell music. Rick shares his insight into the recording studio, and how it has transitioned over the past 40 years, and helps us look into the future as to where it leads us, and its place in today and tomorrow’s music scene.

Rick Lloyd has been working in the music business for well over 4 decades. In that time, he has worked in the recording studio, producing (along with playing guitar) for such artists including Billie Jo Spears, T. Graham Brown, Loretta Lynn, Stella Parton, Eddie Rabbit, Tony Orlando, George Jones, and Crystal Gayle just to name a few.
