Peter Adzima was on a cross-country trip when he first called me. (Once he got to Nashville, he wound up staying around for five years.)  Initially, I produced four songs on him for Wild Oats Records' "Singer/Songwriter Series"; a couple of years later, we followed up with a full Peter Adzima CD,"Leave A Pearl". Peter is a very talented guy who writes thoughtful, well-crafted songs... he's also a fine addition 
to any Happy Hour.    - Steve H. 

Peter writes: 

My first conversation with Steve Haggard was a telephone interview in 
which I asked some very pointed questions about Wild Oats Records, 
recording, the costs involved and what I expected in return. What I got 
was straight answers... and now, many years later, I can tell you from 
that first day Steveís honesty has never wavered. 

My time in the recording studio was, in one word, wonderful. Steve, 
along with recording engineer Randall Merryman, creates a relaxing 
atmosphere that puts the artist at ease and lets you concentrate on 
creating beautiful music. 

The professional musicians who are part of the Wild Oats cast are as 
good as it gets. If you have the opportunity to work with players like 
John Kearns or David Russell, you will be amazed at their talents! 

I canít say enough about Steveís work as a producer. He knew how to 
take my songs to another level. As a writer, I often say a song takes 
you where it wants to go. A good producer also takes a song where 
it wants to go, and knows when to stop and let it be. 

Lastly, Steve let me ask questions during the whole process. If there 
was something I didnít like, we would discuss it. Sometimes he would 
agree with me and make the change. Sometimes he would convince me 
why it should remain as he intended. But he never shut me out of the 
process. That was important to me. 

I can tell you that I am quite pleased with all facets of my experience 
with Wild Oats Records, and the best part is that I've not only gained 
a record label, I have gained a trusted friend.
