|Planet Earth Recording Co. was created in 1995. The motive behind its conception was to find, encourage, and nurture the creative and talented musicians and composers in our world today. Planet Earth Recording Co. has become an outlet for a multitude of artists – hidden gems just needing an opportunity. One such performer is Thomas Z. Shepard, a multi-Grammy recipient as a producer…but what a sensitive, intuitive pianist. His “Love …On a Stormy Weekend” combines classical works of the masters with his own unique improvisations. Other new or established composer/artists featured on the label include Tommy Newsom, Mac Frampton, Merl Saunders, Beth Michaels, Huston Singletary, Cheryl Rogers, Jonn Serrie, David Seering, Chris Corso, Marc Aramian, Alan Shacklock, Paul Gilreath, Emory Gordy, Skip Lane, John Martin, and Tim McCabe.
